Changes are Coming to Quiz Access

Tell Us How We’re Doing!

You may notice in the next few weeks that we are changing the way you can access the quiz for some of our training videos. For those that are updated, you will no longer be able to click on the link for the quiz before the video is completed. The quiz link will appear at the conclusion of the video.

 

The rest of the process of completing the quiz, achieving a score of 80%, and obtaining a certificate will remain the same.

 

If you have any questions or require technical assistance, please email us at centersupport@usf.edu

 

The Center is continuously striving to better serve your needs. Reflecting on your personal experience using the Center’s Web Services, please respond to our monthly survey.
