Pretest Instructions

Online Pretests

Almost all pretests in Physics 12x will be given online. The first pretest should be completed on the first day of the quarter or early on the second day. All subsequent pretests must be completed between Friday after class and the following Monday before class. Consult the appropriate page above for the specific times.

Pretest Availability

You are responsible for taking the online pretest between Friday and Monday. The exception is Pretest 1 (see pretest schedule: 121 - 122 - 123). The pretests will not be available at other times.

Time Limit

You should take about 12 minutes to complete the pretest. The pretest will be automatically submitted after 15 minutes whether you are finished or not.

Take the pretest in one sitting.

You cannot take a particular pretest more than once so be sure you have a 12 to 15 minute block of time during which you will not be interrupted.

To receive credit for the pretest we must either have your pretest submission or an email explaining any difficulties you were having. The email must be received during the times that the pretest is due; you must include the information at right to receive credit.

If you are in Physics 122 send an email to: uwttl122@u.washington.edu

If you are in Physics 123 send an email to: uwttl123@u.washington.edu

The appropriate email address is also included at the bottom of each pretest.
