The SNAP course offers a quiz and exam for each chapter. It also provides an item bank for each chapter, which can be used to create custom quizzes and exams. Each quiz and exam item is aligned to a skill in the book. This pairing allows students to check their understanding and track their progress through the chapter quizzes, and instructors to assess student understanding through comparable'but unique'chapter exams.
