I registered for the honor code certificate. I got a 1 in all psets except the second last one. My dashboard says 0%, as does everyone else's. But how can I be certain that I will be getting the certificate? And if it doesn't appear on the dashboard by 31st Jan, what should I do?

    what do you mean by 'second last one'? pset8? or pset7?

  • And what exactly did you get on the second last one?

1 Answer 1


If you skipped pset8 (shuttle) and have passing grades (above 0.66) in all other pests, be patient and wait for the certificate. The grade book is not connected to the edX portal and so it will always say 0%. If you do not get your certificate by the 31st, I would contact Rob Bowden via email or post on the reddit sub forum for CS50.

UPDATE: For what it's worth, my certificate appeared on the dashboard today (January 21, 2015). I did skip the shuttle pset due to technical issues with getting the google earth plugin to work. enter image description here

    Did you mean "on or after the 31st"? I don't think contacting Rob about missing certificates before the 31st is a good idea.

  • Where exactly does the certificate appear? This is my first edx course, so I don't know where to look for the certificate.
