    Confidential • Based on feedback from the Instructor and Student Advisory boards and usage metrics: • Pretests not included – very low usage metrics, resources better spent in other areas • Practice Finals not available – due to aggressive release date these are not included at this time. Looking at possibly adding them at a future date. • Quizzes moved to UI – the quizzes were designed as practice for students. These were moved to the new GUI to be more interactive • Quizlets removed – focused on more videos and interactive content in new GUI • Form-fillable PDFs – stopped providing first in IT Essentials v7 – massive effort in man hours better spent on development. Acrobat Reader still allows students to add text to PDFs. CCNA R&Sv6 vs. CCNAv7 – What’s Different?
