Online quizzes

Links:

You log in to the practice quiz system with your Virginia Tech PID and Password, and log off when you are finished practicing. This server has no connection to the testing server, which means that you will not risk losing any graded work if you forget to quit your browser. It also means that these practice problems will not be available when you view past tests. If you want to review your practice quiz problems later, you can mark up to 30 individual problems using the link below each graded practice problem. There is a link to your list of marked problems available anytime you are in the practice problem system.

Spring break: Quizzes with weekend deadlines will have their deadline postponed to Monday, March 12. If there is another quiz the following week, it will start on Tuesday, March 13. Quizzes with weekday deadlines which start the week before the break will be available for two weeks.

Final exam schedule:

7:45 am - 9:45 am, Wednesday, May 9, 2018. The first half of this is the common time final and the second half is your instructor's part of the final exam. Please note that common time finals are usually not in the same room as your class. Room assignments will be announced near the end of the semester.
