Dr. Sarah's Sheet on WebCT quizzes
First use the Computer Information Sheet
to enter WebCT, as usual.
From the main WebCT page, click on Quizzes.
WebCT quizzes are designed to help you learn the material and focus for
exams, but the quiz grade is not a part of your course grade (note though that
an A on at least one retake of each WebCT quiz can help you receive a
bonus credit of +1 on your final average - see the syllabus for additional
criteria for the bonus credit).
Taking a Quiz
A quiz that is a link is available to take.
Click on the quiz. Click Begin quiz.
Save each question's answer.
Notice that the orange dots will turn into blue checks
(on the right side of WebCT) as you save each question.
Be careful to follow the input directions for each
question since WebCT will mark your
answer as incorrect if it is not in the correct format.
Note that for multiple choice questions,
boxes mean that more than one choice may be chosen.
When you are finished, click Finish.
Then click ok and ok again to Submit Quiz for Grading.
Then click on View Results.
Under quizzes, you can view your previous tries
(and how they were graded)
by clicking on
If you decide to take retakes, use
them as a way to reinforce learning and prepare for
tests. As you answer each question,
ask yourself whether you could
explain WHY answers are true or false
and show the work necessary to obtain the correct answers
on a test.
