Note that there is a time limit --
usually one hour -- for completing the exam once you begin. The time
limits should be generous enough to allow you to work through the exam.
Obviously, you may use whatever
resources you have available as you take the quiz. If you try to look
up every question in the book while taking the test, however, you may
run out of time before completing all the questions on the test.
Since you may repeat the exams
(usually 2-3 times; check your course), you'll want to use your time
wisely and develop a strategy that will help you be successful on each
exam and learn the material well.
After you take the exam the first
time (if you're not satisfied with your score), you'll need to determine
what you need to study more, go back and re-read the text and the course
content materials online for those content areas.
There is no penalty for taking the
test more than once. You should definitely consider repeating the exam
if your score is less than an A! The advantage, in addition to the
obvious, is that you really LEARN the material and learn from your
errors on the previous attempts.
Once you are satisfied with your
score on a quiz, you may move on to the next section of the material.
There is no need to email me with your score. The scores are
automatically saved on the server in Vista and are available to me at
The highest score you post for
each exam will be the one that counts toward your final grade.
