You will have one weeks time to submit your quiz. Deadline: February 29. You can access to the quiz answers from your teachers in the beginning of March. Reach out to Ellen at with any questions. 

Directions: All questions require a response, so take your best guess if you do not know the answer. For questions with check boxes, only select one answer per question otherwise the response will not be counted. Limit yourself to 60 minutes to finish the quiz (it should take around 30 minutes). Hold yourself to academic honesty standards: take this quiz alone without notes or outside support. 

Good luck!
