Writer’s Help provides exercise sets for practice in writing, research, and grammar topics. This article will show you how to complete your Exercise assignment. We will start with multiple choice questions then cover writing activity questions.

From the home page

Click the Assignments tab.


From the Assignments page

Open the Assignments unit that contains the Exercise you wish to work on by clicking on the title or the arrow next to it. Click on the Exercise to open it.

How to complete your Exercise for multiple choice questions:

  1. Read the instructions at the top of the page (if there are any links to references, click on the links to get more information). Then, read and answer the 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. A completed Exercise 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 or the next Exercise (if you have been assigned one), 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.


Some Exercises have text boxes for you to type your answer in. Click in the text box, type your answer, then click Submit. You can enlarge the text box by dragging out the corner of it.


You will get Feedback on your answer once you have submitted it. If the Exercise isn't autoscored, credit will be given once your instructor reviews and grades it.


From your Assignments page

Your Exercise will be marked as Done.

"Done" status appears to the right of the assignment title.
