On-Line Practice Tests (1) Type in your name at the top of the "form" (2) Take the "test" (3) Click on "Check Your Work" at the bottom and the practice test will be automatically scored.   (4) Take the test as many times as  you like for practice. (5) Your scores are NOT emailed to the teacher, so you are free to use the on-line test as  a study guide and take it as many times as you need to in order to master the material. Can I Look at or Download Items Ahead of Time? Yes, if you would like to work ahead, it is perfectly OK to look at or download items before we cover those subjects in class.
