Choosing a Topic: Learning Outcomes


PLEASE NOTE: This is a former tutorial that the library used to have. We have now converted our tutorials to here: . 3-question quizzes are attached to each one or a professor may sign a quiz for a whole section.

Working to contact your professor to see if an alternate assignment can be put in place. Thanks for your patience!
