Quiz Grades

Grading Scale for Quizzes

 

Quizzes are graded on a modified pass/fail system. For all of the quizzes, you are allowed to repeat these as many times as you want. Only your best score is used to calculate your grade for each quiz.

When you click on a link to start a quiz, an introductory page appears that contains the deadline and the pass rate for this quiz.
