Taking a Quiz
Wireless is very convenient, but it is much easier to receive interference. If your wireless goes out, you might have problems finishing your quiz. Take your quiz on a computer wired directly to your home internet connection, or in a computer lab to avoid connectivity problems.
There are changes you can make to your computer which will help reduce the number of potential problems you could experience with D2L, and the internet in general. Make sure your computer is free of spyware and malware. Make sure your software is up-to-date with the latest updates and patches. Make sure to add Learn@UWSuperior to your popup blocker exceptions list and trusted web sites list.
Remember that you can save every question in your quiz by clicking the Save button for each question. If your quiz is on multiple pages, questions are automatically saved when you move to a new page.
After the quiz period has closed, some instructors will allow you to see the questions and answers for the quiz. (See image) This submission view shows all questions and answers, the instructor determines what is shown after the quiz has been completed.
If you have a problem, get back into the quiz as quickly as possible. If you are unable to, email the Technology Helpdesk. Make sure to indicate what class it is, who your instructor is and what time it happened! Letting us know means your instructor knows you are making an effort to resolve your quiz problem.
If you are experiencing difficulties with Internet Explorer (PC) or Safari (Mac), try using Firefox when taking quizzes.
If the machine you are using is not functioning, it is okay to take a quiz on a different computer. Note that the computer change is logged.
