Assessment in Common Cybersecurity Attacks, Malware and Defense Strategies

Overview of how you will be assessed

In this course, you will see four quizzes. Quizzes are for practice. They do not contribute to your final score. They’re a fantastic opportunity for you to check your progress and understanding.

Tests are part of your final score. You can retake tests as often as you need but it is important to complete them as they count towards your overall score. You need to mark over 90%+ of steps as complete across the entire ExpertTrack, attempt every test question, and score an average of at least 70% across all your assessments, to be eligible to gain certificates at both individual course level, and overall ExpertTrack level.

Finally, you do not have to take any test until you’re ready. To help you prepare you might wish to spend some time reviewing and revising. You can find out more about this ExpertTrack and its assessment and on our Community pages.
