You have worked hard, begun to complete your coursework and made good progress towards meeting the goals that you set for yourself when you first got started with your learning journey. However, how can you go back and evaluate your performance in the courses and assignments that you have already completed? Are you on your way to passing your courses and meeting the goals you created, or is more effort required?
In this Article, we will show you how Genius can help you answer these questions by making it possible for you to view your results from both completed and active courses.
Accessing Your Results
In general, while enrolled as a learner, you will want to access your results from two different types of courses - active courses, i.e. courses where you are currently enrolled as a learner and which are still ongoing, and completed courses - where you have already met the requirements to pass the course.
From Active Courses
Total Grade To-Date:
In your Learner's Dashboard, under the Active Courses box, you will see a mosaic view, with each tile representing a course in which you have successfully enrolled in. Each tile has a colored square with a number in the center. This number represents your total grade to-date in each of the courses that you have enrolled in.
We note again that the grade shown here is the total grade to-date. This means that if you have completed 2 assignments worth 20% of your grade with a grade of 80% so far, the number in the Dashboard will read 80% - even though you have only secured an overall, course-wide grade of 16%. This means you are making good progress towards passing this course - although this may change as you complete more assignments over time!
The color of the square represents your progression in the course - with orange meaning that you are yet to start the course, green meaning that you are making good progress towards the completion of the course, and purple meaning that this course is overdue and at risk of not being completed:
Genius typically will not display assignment-by-assignment results. Your LMS's Gradebook or Grade Center will typically be the correct place to find this information. Click on the tiles in the mosaic under Active Courses to access the LMS where you can find detailed breakdowns of where your performance went right or wrong in a given course.
From Completed Courses
Your Learner's Dashboard has a box on the mid right-hand side titled Completed Courses. The grade you achieved in each of the courses you completed successfully will be shown in this section.
About Transcripts & Certificates
Genius also supports the issuance of transcripts and certificates that serve a formal proof of your performance during your organization's learning initiative. Those are covered in greater detail in this Article.

Performance is a key part of the learning process. Genius helps you keep track of your performance through many tools - ranging from transcripts and certificates to the visualizations included in your Learner's Dashboard. However, if you find that your grades in a course are not meeting your expectations, Genius also makes it possible for you to withdraw from a course at any point.
In this way, Genius provides a complete solution to the challenges faced by learners in e-Learning initiatives.
