Tips for Online Quiz Success

Quiz Tips

  • If you're taking online courses, try to have one web browser that you use only for your classes and another web browser that you use for everything else. For example, you might use Firefox for your online classes and Internet Explorer for everything else, like checking your email, using Facebook, etc.

  • Recommended minimum browser: Firefox 4, Internet Explorer 8 (IE 10 required for drag and drop of files from outside the browser into Moodle), Safari 5, Google Chrome 11

Additional Tips

  • When taking a quiz, you shouldn't have any other programs or applications running, including other web browsers. Other programs and applications running could cause your computer to crash or freeze, preventing you from completing your quiz or submitting your quiz on time.

  • When taking a quiz, you shouldn't have any other web pages open. Other web pages might be sending or receiving data, which could interfere with your quiz.

  • When taking a quiz, disable any add-ons that weren't standard with your initial browser installation. These add-ons include things like the Google toolbar, MSN toolbar, or Yahoo toolbar. These toolbars are notorious for causing problems in JetNet, especially when taking a quiz.

  • Occasionally click the "Save without Submitting" button at the bottom of the quiz page. This will save your current progress and will also refresh your page.
