Missing Bonus Points for Completed MVA Courses

Missing Bonus Points for Completed MVA Courses

  • Comments 10

We have received a lot of feedback regarding the Bonus Points that we recently added to the MVA Courses not being added retrospectively to users who have already completed those courses. 

We apologise for the time it is taking to do this and we will be adding the bonus points to users that had completed the affected courses prior to this change.

We had planned to do this update this week, together with a larger change around the point scaling system. However, we have had to move this change out to the week of May 30th.

Near the time, we will publish details of the changes.

  • Hi, not only bonus points, some courses points are also not updated.

  • Points are not reflect after completed course :(

  • @Jenny, @Alex: We are sorry to see that you have issues with the point systems. Can you please send us an email to and let us know the windows live ID you are using in MVA? We will make sure to check where the issue might come from.

  • Whilst the bonus points got added to the individual course totals, they didn't get rolled up to the total score (for me at least)

    Do you need another live ID to look at, or do you have a fix coming down the line?  

    basically, if I add my individual course points up now, I get 579 points, but my dashboard total is 486.  the difference of 93 points is exactly the sum of the bonus points for the first courses done (prior to the bonus point system being added)

  • @Stephen. We are sorry the bonus points did not get added correctly. We have just released an update  to the point system which includes the fix to add all bonus points to scores of students, like yourself, who completed the course and have not see them added in correctly.

  • After completing the Introduction to Windows Azure course I had the 100 points yesterday and  today I came and it shows only 44 points.  Do I need to retake the self assessments?  Thanks,

  • @Martha. The changes you are seeing are a result of an update we made regarding the point system.

    It's explained in the latest post at

  • Somebody takes many thousand points by just about 40 tracks. Please let me know how to take such points by such few tracks?

  • i also agree with u @ sergii........... please post best way to earn more points......

  • I don't seem to be getting awarded points for either modules or the self assessments I have done in the last couple of days...
