Modules are self-contained units providing handbook content, readings, exercises, and writing activities. Instructors might assign them so you can learn about and practice their skills in these areas. To complete an assignment Module, please see the steps shown below.

From the home page

Click the Assignments tab.


From the Assignments page

Click on the title or the arrow next to the Assignment unit which contains the Module you wish to work on. In this case, we will select Module: Editing for concise writing to open.


From the Module page

Read the instructions for the Module. Use the Next arrow to move through the Module. You can also go back by using the Previous arrow.


Read through the Module pages (arrowing forward and back, as needed). These pages have theory and examples to help with the Practice assignment at the end. The Practice Module may contain multiple choice quizzes, exercises, and writing activities.


From the Practice page

How to complete the multiple choice questions:

  1. Read the instructions, then answer the multiple choice questions. You can answer the questions in any order.
  2. Click the radio button by the answer you think is correct.
  3. Click Submit.

    Note: Once you Submit an answer, you cannot change it. Completed Practice questions cannot be retaken.

  4. Once submitted, you will find out if your answer is correct or not. Feedback will give you more information about that answer.
  5. If you wish, you can leave a question(s), navigate to another page, or log out and back in again. You will be able to answer any remaining question(s) when you return.

To navigate to the next page, click Next. Click Previous to get back to the previous page.

You must answer all of the questions and submit them all to complete your assignment. If you do not submit and complete all of the questions, you will get a zero for a grade. Your score will not show at the top of the page or report to Gradebook until all the questions are answered.


For writing activities and exercises, follow the directions above the text box (which are usually different for each question). Per the directions, copy and paste or type your answer in the text box. The text box can be enlarged by grabbing the lower right corner and dragging it out. When done, click Submit.


Your answer will be provisionally accepted. You will get a grade once your instructor has evaluated it.


When your practice assignment is complete, the Next arrow will be grayed out and not available for use. Your answers will no longer be available to review by using the Previous arrow. Click Home to exit the Assignment Module.
