Massage Therapy and TMJD Quiz

This page is the quiz for your continuing education course. Please answer all of the questions below then click the “Grade my quiz” button at the bottom of the page. If you are stuck, use the “Hint” link that appears under the question.

You must score 75% or higher to pass. The quiz is a pass/fail matrix and it stops counting points once you reach the passing threshold of 75% so the only score you will receive will be PASS or FAIL. It will tell you which ones you missed, however, so you can try again if you fail.

If you click “Grade my quiz” and nothing happens it is because you missed a question. The Quiz will not submit unless EVERY question is answered, including the five at the top that collect the student information.

Good luck!
