How do I take an online test?

There should be a link to your test in one of the content areas in the left hand menu bar, possibly in a content area titled Tests or Exams. If you are having trouble locating the test, consult with your instructor.


Once you click on the test, you will be presented with the rules and instructions regarding that test, such as possible time limits, the types of question you might receive, and so on. Once you have read through these question, click Begin. Depending on how the instructor has set up the test, you will either be presented with all questions on one page, or be able to Save your answers to proceed onto another page (you may or may not be able to backtrack). Once you have completed the test, click Submit.
