Chapter 8 Lessons 1 And 2 Test - Quiz

This is the first time I am trying out this online testing option. My hope here is that students will be more comfortable taking the test at home because it is a less restrictive environment. If this test goes well, we make be doing other assessments online as well. Students are reminded that they are to follow the same rules that they would follow in class to take a test. Students are not permitted to use notes or the internet to find answers. Students are not allowed to ask parents or sibilings to help either. This test is to be completed by the student only using only the students own knowledge of the material.
