Taking the Quizzes

Harvey Mudd College students only.

At the end of each tutorial is a link to take the associated quiz. You will be required to enter your login and password to gain access to the quiz. Under the HMC Honor Code you are expected to abide by certain guidelines concerning the taking of quizzes:

  • While taking a quiz, you are not allowed to use any aids (e.g., the tutorials, textbooks, notes) unless specifically directed to do so by the quiz.

  • Calculators may be used only for doing simple arithmetical calculations. Do not use calculators for graphing or symbol manipulation.

  • You may not solicit help while taking a quiz or give help to someone else who is taking a quiz.

  • After you have accessed a quiz, you may not discuss its contents with any of your classmates until after they have taken the same quiz.
    note: there is more than one quiz for each tutorial.

In order to pass a quiz, you must answer at least 70% of the questions correctly. The questions are fairly straightforward and follow directly from the tutorial. There are several quizzes for each tutorial so you can attempt a different one if you aren't successful the first time. If you are unable to pass a quiz for a particular tutorial within three attempts, we suggest that you contact your professor to review. He or she will be happy to help you. Your professor might even contact you first!
