Assessment of Learning

You must achieve a score of 80% for successful program completion. Passing the test will allow you to receive Continuing Education Units (CEUs) from Kansas State University. It is your responsibility to verify with your state/or governing agency/or professional development committee that these CEUs will be accepted (you have 21 days to complete the program from the time access is granted).
