XU.TUTOR is an online tutorial developed by the library with the help of an Ameritech Partnership Award.
To access XU.TUTOR go to the library's homepage (http://www.xavier.edu/library/). Scroll down the page to the Services box and click XU.TUTOR. These five library tutorials will help you to do research more effectively and efficiently.
To satisfy this step you need to complete the following tasks:
Read through the instructions on the XU.TUTOR hompage and be sure to try each of the sample links: glossary, example, video, and demo.
Read these off-campus access instructions. Have your MyXU user name and password handy as you will need this information to get into the XU.TUTOR demos.
There is a quiz at the end of each tutorial. Follow these instructions for the quiz:
Enter your name in the Name textbox.
Enter your Xavier email address in the Email textbox.
Accept the default No Instructor in the Class selectbox.
Complete the quiz.
Click the Score button at the end of the quiz.Your quiz will redisplay showing your score as well as your correct and incorrect answers. You need to achieve 80% or better on each of your quizzes. If your score is under 80% review the pages of the tutorial that address the questions you answered incorrectly and take the quiz again.
Once you have a quiz that is 80% or better print two copies: one for your professor as proof of completing this step and one for your records. You may get asked to take these tutorials again for another class and these quizzes provide the proof you need to get out of taking the tutorials again.
Now you are ready to take the tutorials. You need to complete only the first three tutorials and their quizzes to satisfy this step. You can go to each of the three tutorials by clicking the links below:
