Quizzes are taken online by clicking on "Take Quiz" link in your course outline. Feedback on your quiz performance and quiz answers are provided after you complete the quiz.

    STEP 4: Take the final exam

    Before reviewing any course material online, DRE requires you to acknowledge, under penalty of perjury, that you are the person enrolled, and you will be the only person to complete the course.

    You must pass the exam with a score of 70% to receive 3 hours of AOR and DRE continuing education credit. The exam is multiple choice and open book. The exam is available only after you've met the minimum study time and taken the quizzes.
