- What is a course code, and why do I need one?
A. A course code gives you access to the MOC On-Demand you registered for.

- Who creates these courses?
A. We do. Microsoft Official Courses On-Demand are created by Microsoft Certified Trainers (MCTs) or subject matter experts teaching complete Microsoft Official Courseware (MOC), with real-time, cloud-hosted labs.
- How are these courses structured?
A. Microsoft Official Courses On-Demand are structured in a modular format.
Courses that play in MLX are composed of modules that take between three and eight minutes to watch. Each module contains one or two questions to test your comprehension. At the end of the course is an assessment of at least 25 questions.
Courses that play in Skillpipe are composed of modules that are divided into lessons. Each lesson contains a question or interaction to test your knowledge. The modules each contain five or six assessments, and the courses each contain 25 assessments.
- Do knowledge checks count toward the certificate of completion? Or do only the module assessments count?
A. No, knowledge checks do not count toward the certificate of completion. Only scored module and course assessments count toward the certificate.
- How much of a video needs to be watched to achieve a check mark on the table of contents panel?
A.When 20% of a video is watched within one session, a check mark is added to the table of contents panel.
- After a student completes a MOC On-Demand and passes the last knowledge check, is that student Microsoft certified?
A. No, passing the knowledge checks doesn’t earn certification. The knowledge checks are an excellent way to ensure that a student has learned the material, but they are not Microsoft Certification exams. To be certified, a student still has to take and pass a Microsoft Certification exam.
- Can I get a certificate of completion?
A. Yes, you can get a certification of completion.
- How do I achieve a certificate of completion?
A. To achieve a certificate of completion, you must attain a score of 70% in aggregate for all of the assessments at the end of each module.
- How are the “70% completion criteria” calculated to unlock the certificate of completion for MOC On-Demand?
A. All scored assessments count toward the course completion threshold. If the total score of all scored assessments is 100, the user needs to score 70 points to unlock the certificate.
The 70% threshold is applied on a course level, so it does not matter how and where you score the 70 points.
- How is the student provided with a certificate of completion?
A. When a student earns a minimum of 70% of the available points in a course’s scored assessments, he or she is granted a certificate of completion. The scored assessments are available at the end of each module.
A qualifying student can download the certificate as an Acrobat .PDF file that shows the student’s name, the course name and number, and the course completion date.
On the bookshelf, in the More Info section, students can track their progress and check how many points are needed before the certificate is unlocked. On the left, in the Skillpipe eReader, the Reporting section shows a complete Progress Report summary.
- Is it possible to track general course progress and completion?
A. Yes. Students can track their course progress in the Reporting section in Skillpipe. The Progress Report provides the student with an overview of which items were already worked on, how much time was spent in the different sections, and the performance status of each assessment. The student can access the report from within the course or from the bookshelf, even after a course has expired. Students can track the following metrics:
- Completion of each course element (video, exercises, assessments, and more)
- Last access date per element
- Number of views and time spent in element
- Best score for each scored assessment
- Overall course progress and time spent in course
