Six 10-question quizzes are available to accompany these tutorials.  Here is some basic information about the quizzes:
  • The quizzes live in your Blackboard Learn course sections. 
  • Instructions for placing them in your course can be found below. 
  • They are based on question banks that randomly call up ten questions for each quiz. 
  • They are meant to be low-stakes assessments that signify that students have achieved an introductory understanding of the content. 
  • Student scores will report to your grade book in Blackboard Learn.
  • We recommend score of 8 or above for passing credit for each quiz.
  • Students are able to retake the quiz to improve their score
