This schedule lists the short quizzes given during the term, as well as the material each quiz covers.
Each quiz will have its own Quiz Review video. Be sure to watch the review video before taking the quiz. The quizzes are “open book” — you may refer to review videos, notes, etc. when taking a quiz. You will have only one attempt for taking each quiz.
Be sure to submit the quiz (using the Submit button)! Then you will be able to see your grade in the Grades tab in Canvas.
Grades: each quiz has 5 multiple-choice questions; each question counts 8 points. Therefore a perfect quiz score is 40.
Makeup quizzes are given only in the case of excused absences.
