Taking Quizzes

To take a quiz:

1. Click the name of the quiz you'd like to start.


Important: When taking a timed quiz, the quiz timer will begin running as soon as you confirm you would like to start the quiz (see step 4) and will NOT stop running until you submit the quiz, even if you exit D2L. Be sure that you are ready to complete the quiz before beginning it.

Be sure to save your answers as you go. This will prevent you from losing any work you may have completed in the event that your internet browser suddenly stops working and/or crashes. It also ensures that questions answered during a timed quiz will be successfully submitted if you run out of time.
