Taking a Test Online (Movie, 02:05)
Tests and surveys are used to measure knowledge, gauge progress, and gather information from students. Your instructor assigns point values to questions. Your answers are submitted for grading, and the results are recorded in the Grade Center. Surveys can be used for polling purposes and evaluations. This type of assessment is not graded and responses are always anonymous hidden from your instructor.
Checking Your Grades (Movie, 02:03)
Your instructor controls which tools are available. If this tool is not available, your instructor may have disabled it. The My Grades page shows the status of gradable items, such as tests, assignments, journal and blog entries, and discussion posts. The My Grades page may include item names, details, due dates, student and instructor dates of activity, posted grades, points possible, links to rubrics used for grading, and your instructor’s comments about the items.
