Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  What is Cadet Interactive?

A:  Cadet Interactive is a new way for cadets to work through the Leadership and Aerospace Dimensions texts. These online modules present the textbook material in a new way that allows cadets to listen to narration, flip cards, click hot spots, and more, encouraging engagement and learning.

Q:  What texts are available through Cadet Interactive?

A:  The New Cadet Guide, Learn to Lead volumes I-III (chapters 1-11) and the Aerospace Dimensions modules.  

Q:  What about cadets that lack internet access?

A: We believe this learning system will work for the vast majority of cadets, while acknowledging that cadets from low-income families and those who live in rural communities beyond the reach of broadband will be at a disadvantage. The good news is Cadet Interactive will be located in eServices, so anyone who can access eServices now – via home, phone, school, library, or the squadron – can access Cadet Interactive. In the worst-case scenario, the squadron can continue to serve these cadets via the hard copy, open-book, multiple choice tests they are using today.

Q:  May Cadets go back through previous modules in Cadet Interactive to use as a study/review platform for milestone exams?

A:  Yes, cadets will be able to open all previously completed Cadet Interactive modules to review the information at any time.

Q:  I completed both the Chapter 4 leadership test and Cadet Interactive module, but the honor credit isn't displaying in my record, why?

A:  To earn honor credit for most achievements in phases I and II you need to complete the test and Interactive module for both the leadership chapter and Aerospace Dimensions module you selected.  Full details on exactly what needs to be completed for honor credit are found on the Stripes to Diamonds page for each achievement.

Q:  How can a cadet see what they've completed?

A: Cadets can view their eServices record in eServices > Cadet Programs > Cadet Promotions Track Report.  

Q:  A cadet in phase III took an Aerospace: Journey of Flight test in AXIS.  It's showing the correct date on the Accomplishment's page, but completed/required tasks shows [0/1] and I cannot push the promotion through.  What's going on?

A: The cadet completed the test in the "old" system and cannot receive credit towards the next promotion with a test that was used for a previous achievement.  Cadets in phases III and IV can see and access aerospace tests in AXIS previously completed in the Cadet Online Testing module, but they cannot use previously completed chapter blocks towards their current promotions.  Cadets can see their record in eServices > Cadet Programs > Cadet Promotions Track Report to help keep track.  Cadet Programs officers can see the original test dates and blocks completed in the Cadet Promotion Full Track report.  

Q: What is the purpose of the Upload Documents feature in the Cadet Promotions module?  Do we have to upload a document for every single item?

A: The Upload Document feature in Accomplishments is optional.  The unit may find it useful to have paper tests, leadership feedback, and/or other documents saved in a cadet's electronic record, but it is not required at this time.

Q: If we do the Cadet Welcome Course in a classroom environment with the syllabus provided, how do we manually enter in the date of completion?

A:  The classroom version of the Cadet Welcome Course can be entered through the new bulk entry. You can find this through eServices> Cadet Promotions > Multi-Entry > Bulk Entry Cadet Promotions.

Q:  How can a testing officer reset a cadet's failed test in AXIS?

A:  With the move of cadet testing into the AXIS Learning Management System testing officers no longer have the ability to unlock cadet tests.  The test will unlock automatically in seven days.  It's important that cadets understand that when starting a test in AXIS that it's a timed test and they should be ready to go.  When a cadet has a technical issue, please email cadets@capnhq.gov for assistance in getting the test reset.  

Alternatively, if they don't wish to wait and study further, the cadets in phases I and II may want to use the Cadet Interactive module for their achievement progression.  These do no lock and can be completed at any time.  The test can then contribute towards honor credit once it unlocks.
