A prepaid access code provides immediate access to a Perdisco product. Instructions on how to receive an access code will be provided by your course instructor. Access codes should be treated like cash and may not be replaced if lost.
If you have withdrawn from your course and wish to receive a refund, please send us a copy of the formal confirmation that you receive from the university of your withdrawal. You must send this to Perdisco within 60 days of your original purchase to be eligible for a refund. All refunds will incur an administration handling fee of $5.00.
Bookmarking allows you to save a copy of your questions so that next time you
revisit the question link, you will be presented with exactly the same questions.
This function is helpful if you want to return to those questions at a later time,
or if you want to print your questions and work on them offline
To bookmark a question set or assessment exercise, click the Bookmark or
Home button in your e-workbook (not your browser's 'Home' or 'Bookmark' buttons).
Note that this bookmark does not save any answers that you have entered on the page
but not yet submitted. When you return to a bookmarked page, all answer fields
will be blank and must be completed before submitting the page for grading.
Select the question link you would like to work on, print it and bookmark it.
Note that the bookmark feature does not save any intermediate answers that you
may have already typed into the page.
After you have worked on your answers, login again and click on the same question
link to access the questions you have been working on. Enter and submit your answers
If you want to keep a copy of the feedback you are shown on answers you have submitted,
it is important to save or print that feedback when you first view it. Feedback can
only be viewed at the time of completing a question set and it is not possible for us
to forward you a copy of your feedback at a later time.
Perdisco can only provide you with an extension to complete an assessment task if we have received permission from your instructor to do so.
If you require an extension, please discuss your situation with your instructor and ask them to email us their permission.
If your assessment score is not showing or your average/highest score is displayed incorrectly on your home page, it may be because you have not correctly submitted your assessment attempt by clicking on the 'Finish' button as instructed.
If your assessment submission period is still open, login to your account and click on your assessment task link. You will be presented with the question or feedback page you most recently viewed. To complete the submission process, follow all of the instructions provided to ensure that you continue until you are told that you have finished.
If your assessment submission period has closed, the score you achieved for each attempt will be reported to your instructor, regardless of the score that may be shown on your home page.
If you are being asked to login each time you click on a question link, it is
likely that your web browser, anti-virus software or internet firewall is rejecting
'cookies' that are being sent from our website. Please ensure that all of the security
software on your local computer (browser, anti-virus and firewall) are
configured to accept our cookies. If you are unsure whether your anti-virus
software or firewall is the problem, you can temporarily disable those programs
to see if doing so makes a difference.
If you have made sure that our cookies are accepted and you are still having
difficulty logging in, you may need to reset the cookies stored inside your browser.
You can do this by choosing to 'Delete cookies' or 'Remove cookies' or 'Reset cookies'
in your browser settings/options (generally under your browser's 'Tools' menu).
After doing this, close your browser window and then open a new one and try
logging in again directly from our login page
(rather than any other link you may have bookmarked).
FYI: A 'cookie' is a small piece of data that our server sends to your computer once you login to your Perdisco account. Each time you click on a link, we check for that 'cookie' - and if you rejected or blocked it, our server assumes that you never logged in and asks you to login again.
Perdisco e-learning has its own navigation buttons built into it and you are required to use these to move forward, submit answers, bookmark pages and return to your home page and 'My account' page.
Once you have submitted a question page, you cannot use the back button of your browser to attempt to change your answers. Our e-learning's security system requires that you always move forward through its pages. To avoid seeing error messages:
Although our e-learning content is both academically and technically reviewed before it is made available to students, we take all student queries regarding errors very seriously.
If you believe that you have been graded incorrectly or unfairly, we ask that you do the following before contacting Perdisco support:
If your instructor believes that the question is academically or technically incorrect, they should contact Perdisco support with the assessment name, question ID and why they believe the question to be incorrect.
If your question isn't answered above, you can contact Perdisco support and we will respond within one business day.
So that we can answer your query, please provide us with as much information as you can about the issue you are experiencing.
