Instructions

 

For each of the 12 units of the course, you are required to take a quiz. The quizzes serve multiple purposes:

 

  1. To assess your knowledge of the material. This is a minor aspect, though — each quiz only counts for 2 points out of 100.
  2. To give you practice for the exams. The multiple choice questions for the exams are similar to those on the quizzes. In addition, the quiz questions — especially the ones with the graphs — should help you with the short-essay answer portion of each exam.
  3. To enhance your learning of course materials by having you answer questions that explore the course subject matter.

 

Instructions:

 

  • You may take each unit’s quiz twice, and you will receive credit for the higher of the two grades if you do so. Questions will be drawn at random from a pool of quiz questions, so each quiz for a given unit will be a bit different.
  • The course calendar spells out the due dates for each quiz.
  • When you are ready to take this quiz, click on the link below to begin. Once you begin the quiz you will have 30 minutes to complete the 10 questions and submit your responses.
  • Once you begin, you must complete the quiz in one sitting.
  • The clock will start when you begin and will continue to run even if you go back to another page or log out of Canvas. Please don’t begin the quiz unless you have 30 minutes to complete it!
  • Once time has expired, your quiz will be automatically submitted, even if you have not answered all the questions.

 


Should you encounter any problems in completing a quiz, please write and inform your instructor as soon as possible.
