Review Quiz

Beginning Guitar Students:

The Unit I Review Quiz is posted on the “Resources for Students” menu.  You will need to login to take the quiz.  You may take the quiz twice and the higher of the two grades is recorded in the gradebook.

FYI: The quiz does not automatically import into Infinite Campus, so you will NOT immediately see the grade in your progress report.
