An assessment might also be called a quiz, test, or exam. The assessment may contain questions that can be graded automatically by ANGEL (multiple choice, true/false, fill-in-the-blank, matching, ordering) and/or questions that will need to be graded by the instructor (essay, short answer). Your instructor may set up the assessment so that you see your grade as soon as you complete the assessment, when all questions have been graded, or so you do not see it until a later time. The type of review available at the end of the assessment is also determined by your instructor. Your instructor will provide you with test grade and review availability in your course.
Important requirements for timed assessments
If your instructor has set a time limit for your assessment, the following instructions must be followed to ensure you successfully submit your test.
1. You must not have any other windows open other than the testing window. This means, do not open a Word document, email, additional browser windows, etc. This may result in a disruption in your test and could result in a zero.
2. You may not begin an assessment and finish it at a later time (unless your instructor has given a long time to complete the test). Once the timer has started on an ANGEL test, it continues to countdown even if the student navigates away from the test. Most assessments may only be accessed once!
3. If you experience any technical difficulties at all, email your instructor at once with a DETAILED description of what occurred.
Failure to follow the above guidelines and/or additional guidelines set by your instructor may result in an assessment that cannot be graded.
