Don’t forget to review the Due Date for each Exercise. Work submitted after the due date will not be recorded in your Instructor’s Gradebook, unless he/she has opted to accept late submissions (see Late Submissions section).
After completing each Exercise, check the Exercise Status and Grade fields to confirm that your work has been submitted.
Your instructor may choose to include a Pretest or Posttest. You’ll see these tests at the beginning and end of the lessons list on the Class Dashboard. Your instructor can also assign due dates for these.
Your instructor may choose to allow your Pre-Test to generate a Study Plan that will highlight your strengths and weaknesses, enabling you to know in which areas to focus your attention.
