Take a Personal Study Plan Quiz

You can take Personal Study Plan® chapter and practice quizzes to test or demonstrate your knowledge or to identify areas where you could benefit from additional study or instruction.

Chapter quizzes
Chapter quizzes test your knowledge of every section of the chapter that your instructor included in the Personal Study Plan. Chapter quizzes might include questions that are more complex than practice quizzes.

When you take a chapter quiz, your scores for questions from each section of the chapter replace the scores of your practice quizzes for that chapter.

Note If your instructor set up the Personal Study Plan as part of your class grade, your overall score for the Personal Study Plan is the average of all your chapter quiz scores. Only your last chapter quiz scores are counted.

You can take a chapter quiz as many times as you want, with a new set of randomized questions each time.

Practice quizzes
Practice quizzes test your knowledge of one chapter section at a time, and do not count toward your grade in WebAssign. Practice quiz questions might be simpler than chapter quiz questions; if you are learning the material for the first time, or are not confident about the material, start by taking a practice quiz.

You can take a practice quiz as many times as you want, with a new set of randomized questions each time. Your instructor can view scores for both practice and chapter quizzes. This helps your instructor know if there are subject areas for which either you or the class as a whole might benefit from additional instruction.

    The instructions might provide information about how your instructor wants you to use the Personal Study Plan or if chapter quizzes count toward your grade.
