Back to eLearning @ WWCC

Online classes are not like face-to-face classes.  They require a different skillset to be successful.  This quiz will help you determine how successful you might be in online classes.

Please enter your name and Student ID. Your score will be revealed after you click submit at the end of the quiz.  There are 24 statements worth a total of 50 points with which you can choose to Agree, Somewhat Agree, or Disagree with.  Some may have you answer Yes or No, as well.  Be sure to click submit at the end and view your results and next steps.
