Course specific navigation replaces the overall navigation pieces at the top of the navigation bar including the title, a section to view your grades in that specific course, and a dropdown to view course sections, if your course has multiple topics and sections. The overall program navigation is right under that area.

  •   Exam results by domain – track your performance with your specific course by domain.

9.3. Question Feedback

If you come across a question for which you have identified an issue while taking a quiz or exam, simply click the feedback button on that question, explain the issue, and click submit. Our content team will review the feedback and adjust as necessary.
