CS101 Unit 1 Assessment Not Yet Graded

I notice my attempt at the Unit 1 Assessment will not change from the “Not yet graded” state.

I see there was a similar issue with the CS202 Unit 1 Assessment.

Can the same fix/change be applied to the CS101 Unit 1 Assessment?

I’m currently working my way through Unit 1 of CS101 and have noticed the same thing having completed the Unit 1 assessment. I haven’t tried any other assessment exercises on this or any other course on Saylor Academy, so I may not have the full picture.

However, I’d speculate that the reason why it doesn’t come up with a grade is due to the subjectivity of the text-based answers of some of the questions (where it asks you to write a few paragraphs about the topic, e.g formal logic etc). True/false and multiple choice answers can easily be automatically marked, since they’re objectively right or wrong, but I can’t see how that would work with text-based answers.

But then that does raise the question of why are they included. I suppose ultimately these end-of-unit tests are for purely for practice/consolidation and don’t count for final grades, so it isn’t worth getting too concerned about them. I presume the final overall course test avoids this issue.
