Cumlative Test for Quarter 3. Some Questions will me marked wrong because you will not type the exact words that I used to set up the key so the computer can "grade" it. But if you have the main concept or maybe you switched a few words around then it will be marked wrong when it is actually correct. REMEMBER YOU CAN RETAKE THIS QUIZ! The more you take it the better you will prob. Do on the real test. You may print out the test with the answers to help you study. Just don't use it to get them all "right" when taking the test(that could fool you into thinking that you "know" the answers.
