Progress Test 3
This Progress Test covers the course materials that were assigned in Units 5 and 6. Although the progress test is similar in style to the unit evaluations, the progress test is a closed-Book, proctored test. It is important that you do your own work. 

You may not have access to notes or any of the course materials while you are taking the test.
Select the response that best completes the statement or answers the question.
