This is my second term with WGU and I decided to tackle the math requirements for my degree in business management. QLC1 and QLT1 are the required courses, and I can tell you that they have proved very challenging!
I took on QLT1 first which has five Taskstream tasks and one summative task. The first four tasks are straight forward and deal with graphing equations. The 5th task is a isosceles triangle proof that took me 2 weeks and 5 submissions to get a passing score! I was beside myself trying to pass the last task. I actually passed the summative task on the first try before I passed task 5. The funny thing was that once I passed the summative task my AAP showed the class as being passed even though I hadn't finished the 5 task on the triangle. A quick check with my mentor confirmed that I needed to complete task 5. So a word to the wise on this one: make sure you complete ALL tasks.
Once I finished QLT1 I took a deep breath and the pre-assessment for QLC1. To my surprise I passed the pre-assessment 16 points above the cut score of 53%. The questions seemed very common sense and dealt with real world problems so I scheduled the assessment. I ended up scoring 71% on the objective assessment. Not bad for the guy who was scared of math!
All I can say is remember your high school and college math - if you have any college math - and you will be fine with QLC1. As for QLT1, if you don't have geometry experience, good luck with task 5.
