Taking an assessment

To take an assessment, click its name in the list of available assessments in Tests & Quizzes, or use the URL supplied by your instructor, if applicable.

To start an assessment from within Tests & Quizzes:

  1. From the site's menubar, click Tests & Quizzes.

  2. Under "Take an assessment", you'll see a list of available assessments. Click an assessment's title to get started. You'll see information about the assessment, such as the date due, whether or not there is a time limit, and whether or not the assessment will automatically be submitted if the time limit expires. Your instructor may have also included special instructions.

    Warning: Be sure you understand how much time you have to submit the test.

  3. Click Begin Assessment to take the assessment, or Cancel to abort.

  4. How you proceed through the questions will depend on how the instructor has set up the assessment. If the assessment has more than one page, click Next to save the current page and advance to the next one. If you have the option to do so, click Previous or use the Table of Contents to return to earlier questions.

  5. When you're ready to submit the assessment, click Submit for Grading on the last page of the assessment or on the Table of Contents page, and then click Submit for Grading again to confirm your submission. You'll receive a confirmation number, which you should keep.
