Taking Online Quizzes

Instructors may require students to take quizzes online in Desire2Learn. This allows students to conveniently take quizzes outside of the classroom, while instructors can still set a time frame. In addition, if the instructor allows quiz results to be posted to the class, class statistics can be accessed instantly.

Typically you will have a time frame within which to take the quiz at your convenience. We strongly recommend that you check the D2L homepage to determine when regular maintenance of the D2L system is scheduled (usually early morning hours). While you can access your course during maintenance, we do not recommend taking a quiz during that time. Additionally, we do not recommend trying to take a quiz over a wireless connection.
