Student Authentication Verification. Each provider of pre license online course content must have in place a system and process
for identifying and authenticating online learners, ensuring the student who registers for a course is the student who completes the
course material, and is the student who successfully passes the school’s final exam. The student authentication system must require
each student to authenticate themselves each time they enter the course, and have one authentication during each logged in session,
and prior to any final school exam for the course. The system must provide a detailed reporting structure allowing audits for
compliance of student authentication by the Department, if requested. The record shall include: the name of the student; the dates of
attendance; the time log by activity; the course title; the ADRE course number; and credit hours awarded. The student record for
each course must be retained by school for five (5) years. See Substantive Policy Statement 2019.01 Online Pre Licensing
Education Course and Learning Guidelines for acceptable formats of student authentication verification.

adherence to any applicable copyright laws, and that any required permissions have been obtained. Do not submit hard copies of
instructional material to ADRE.
urse Timing Requirements/Credit Hour. Every course is to be structured, and follow the approved course outline, and is to
contain enough content and/or activities which shall include participation and interaction to meet the minimum time requirement of
50 seat minutes for each credit hour the course is approved for. The minimum sum of time of all of the modules for a ninety (90)

examination, nor sponsor presentation time. Sale or promotion of products or services are only permitted prior to or after

dules: Each 90-hour course shall be divided into modules as defined above. Schools should time each module so that the student
may not proceed in the course until the minimum time for the module has elapsed. The school must provide, through robust course
content and delivery, a course that shall prevent all opportunities for students to move through the course too quickly. The course
platform is to be configured such that the course modules are locked. This means the student is required to advance through
modules in a linear fashion, and cannot advance to any subsequent module until the previous module and all associated instructional
content interactivity quizzes have been passed.
structional Content Interactivity. Each module shall contain instances of instructional content interactivity questions at the
discretion of the provider which may be achieved through multiple choice, true-false, matching, prioritizing, or other reasonably
accepted formats. The entire 90 hour course must contain a minimum of 900 instances of instructional content of interactivity
placed throughout the course modules.
urse delivery must include interactivity, and course performance measured by quizzes.
ditionally, at the end of each module, the student’s understanding must be accessed through a quiz using multiple choice
questions, each with only one correct/best answer. The difficulty of the assessment/quiz should be reflective of the content
presented in that module. The student must achieve a minimum passing score of 80 percent before proceeding in the
b. The entire 90-hour course must contain a minimum of 700 end of module multiple choice quiz questions that are different
from any multiple choice questions used within a module to meet the interactivity requirements. The number of end-of-
module quiz questions may vary from module to module, but shall reflect that modules substance and length.
