Online quiz technical guidelines for students

Instructors are urged to give students these guidelines to avoid technical problems during online quizzes:
  • Use the most reliable internet connection available: Come to a campus lab, if possible. Next in reliability are cable modem and DSL. Dial-up is not recommended.
  • Use a "hard-wired" internet connection, NOT WIRELESS.
  • SAVE each answer as they move through the quiz.
  • WAIT a minute after hitting Submit Quiz, before shutting down the browser or logging out of D2L -- this allows the system to properly save their responses and do the auto-grading, if that option is enabled.
  • If the student has browser issues (e.g., the browser "freezes") or loses internet connectivity during the quiz, they should
    • shut down the browser (not submit the quiz, not log out)
    • open a new browser window
    • log back into D2L
    • navigate to the course and enter the quiz again
    • continue taking the quiz.
    • NOTE: In a timed quiz, the clock keeps ticking.
