The material covered is good, but dated. It seems to be a promotion for a textbook on netiquette.

Technical Remarks:

It takes Java a very long time to load. It could use a loading icon. Also, knowing how many questions there are would help the learner to know how much longer the quiz will be. The design of the site seems to be very outdated technology-wise.

The site has good information about email ettiquette but seems to be a bit dated. The newest copyright on the site is 2011 but many of the pages list a much older date. After some digging I was able to find some references to social networking but the resource primarily focuses on email. I would encourage the author to redesign the site to address current technology.

Technical Remarks:

The Nettiquette quiz requires java to run which will limit its use on mobile devices. In Google Chrome on Mac, the quiz was cut off on one side and difficult to read.

This is a good start at Netiquette; however, I can see professors modfying the questions to be more specifice to their course adn their course communication.

I missed a few questions because I didn't realize a new question appeared.  A next and back button would help in the usage in case someone wanted to review the choices again.

Sometimes, students as well as senders of other online messages tend to forget proper netiquette. The Netiquette Quiz could be used at the beginning of a course to remind students of how they should communicate in their online forums.

For individuals new to online communication (e-mail, discussion boards, chat
rooms, etc.), this web site provides some very helpful tips. I took the online
quiz myself and found it to be quite user friendly and informative. I plan to
integrate this site into my online class orientation at the beginning of the

Technical Remarks:

This site is relatively easy to navigate. Additional graphics and color would

This quiz is a quick and easy way for beginning and experienced online students
to be aware of civility on the web. The home page provides more detailed
information that is also valuable if an instructor chooses to devote more time
to this topic.

Technical Remarks:

The text on the quiz itself could have been larger. The quiz itself was well
designed giving immediate feedback and a detailed explanation of the correct

I went through and took the quiz and then read the follow-up comments of each
response. Then I went back and tried each answer, reading the corresponding
feedback that follows the answer, whether right or wrong. Since I needed a
non-threatening, non-punitive way to teach netiquette to a group of college
freshmen who would be actively involved in email communication with their peers,
I tried the quiz with a group of twenty students.

I found that the students were surprised at some of the responses to their
answers, which indicated they really needed the awareness the quiz gave them.
They weren't as threatened by the "computer's" answer and took it well when they
missed something. I didn't have to be the "bad guy" or "heavy" while exposing
some of them to things they were unaware of.

Technical Remarks:

The quiz was very easy--and effective. With some of the first time users--there
weren't many--it took a minute to get them to the site. Then they were fine.
