Tips to Navigate This Course

This course proceeds in a linear fashion (Lesson 1, then Lesson 2, and so on).  You will see that some lessons have quizzes.  You must complete the quiz in order to move on in the course.  Once you complete a question, click either the “Next Question” or “Finish Quiz” button, depending on the number of questions.  Once your results are calculated, click the “Click Here to Continue” button (NOT “Next Lesson”) to ensure your quiz results are recorded.

All quizzes must be completed before the final quiz is attempted.  To confirm you have completed all of the lessons, check the menu on the right hand side of the page (if on a desktop).  If the circles on each lesson are red, you have completed the lessons and are ready for the final test!
