Taking Article Quizzes
Taking a Quiz over a Research Article: At four points during the semester, a student may choose to read articles or article synopses and take quizzes over the articles. Students will earn 1 Study Board credit for each quiz that they attempt and an additional 1 Study Board credit for each quiz that earns 70% or more. The quizzes will be 10 multiple-choice questions. The student may have notes during the quiz, but may not have the article or synopsis. Students may not get help from other students during the test time and may not bring in any prepared material for use during the quiz.
