Information Literacy Quiz - Take this quiz after viewing the tutorials. Be sure to click "check answer" as soon as you answer each question. Your score is automatically tabulated. At the end of the quiz, (you may need to scroll down) fill in your name and click "Print Score Summary." Either print it to give to your instructor or, if you are in an internet class, use the computer's snipping tool to create an image file of the score summary. Submit the image file in Desire2Learn.
