Five 10-question quizzes accompany these tutorials (a single quiz covers tutorials 1 and 2, and also for the four tutorials for MLA Style. There is no quiz for #10.). 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.

See the Program page of this guide for course recommendations.
