__Some Hints__:

__Hint #1: How to Re-Attempt a Multi-Attempt Assignment (e.g., the reading quizzes, some lab quizzes, and the homework assignments)__:

If you have already attempted an assessment, you will see a page similar to the image below when you click on the assignment title in the weekly assignments list. If you want to re-submit the assessment, instead of clicking on the "OK" button in the lower right-hand corner of the screen, click on "or take the test again" which I have highlighted in yellow and circled in red in the image below.

If you would like to review your previous attempt(s), click the "OK" button. You should have feedback (in red) on all of your incorrect responses (and even on some of your correct responses) for each attempt. You should find the feedback helpful when re-attempting the assessment and when taking the course exams.

__Hint #2: How to Use the Blackboard "My Grades" Button to Find Assignment Grades, Feedback, and Solutions__:

While completing your weekly assignments, you should look over the feedback I give on your assignments and the solutions for the assignments. Click HERE to view a tutorial in which I describe how to see your grades, my feedback, and the solutions for all of your completed assignments. Note: Feedback is available as soon as you complete each assignment, and solutions will be available after 11:30 a.m. C.T. on Monday, May 20.
