  • take the practice quiz to ensure that your computer is compatible with the learning management system, Canvas;

Course Detail

Course Communication

Communication in this course will take place via the Canvas Inbox. Check out the Canvas Conversations Tutorial or Canvas Guide to learn how to communicate with your instructor and peers using Announcements, Discussions, and the Inbox. I will respond to all correspondences within 24-48 hours.

Assessments

In order to mitigate any issues with your computer and online assessments, it is very important that you take the "Practice Quiz" from each computer you will be using to take your graded quizzes and exams. It is your responsibility to make sure your computer meets the minimum hardware requirements.

All assessments will auto-submit when (1) the timer runs out OR (2) the closing date/time is reached, whichever happens first. For example, if a quiz has a closing time of 5:00 pm but the student begins the exam at 4:55 pm, the student will only have 5 minutes to complete the quiz.

  • Quizzes will be available starting the week of the assignment, once prior modules are completed
  • Assessments will be self-paced/no timer
  • Each Assessment is worth 1 completion point
  • You will be able to see your result upon completion of exam
  • You must earn an 80% (.8) or higher to earn completion point
  • You can retake the assessments to earn the required grades
  • Any manually graded questions will be done within 7 days after the assessment submission

Assessments in this course are not compatible with mobile devices and should not be taken through a mobile phone or a tablet. If you need further assistance please contact FIU Canvas Help Team.
