What is Credit Recovery and why

supplement work in the classroom.

The instructor will remove your test while you are
outside of the classroom, and then put it back in when
you return. After having a test removed, expect your
first assignment to be a test when you return to the
eLearning computer labs.
Because students can work from home, there is no
need to come to the classroom everyday.
When logging off e2020, make sure you sign off, not
just simply hitting the “X” in the top right hand corner.

What to do if you fail a quiz:
1st attempt: review the questions you got wrong and
study lecture/notes again.
2nd attempt: Sit down with your instructor reviewing
questions. Also expect to re-watch the lecture while
taking notes before additional retakes are given to you.
Do not move on to new material until you have passed
the current quiz.
