2C. A NOTE FOR QUIZZES: enter your course and click on the Assessments icon. The quiz you want to take should have an underlined link to it; if it does not THEN compare the date and time listed for the quiz to the current date/time - a quiz will not "open up" until the correct time - you may have to refresh your page to see the quiz become available. There is a time limit to the quiz - it will not let you submit answers after the time limit! MAKE SURE to read carefully the section in the syllabi about taking the quizzes to avoid problems!! After the quizzes are graded then: QUIZ ANSWERS ARE AVAILABLE (see the syllabi).
