OWL Exercises

Welcome to the OWL Exercise Pages

Welcome to the updated OWL exercise pages. For the past year and a half, we have been working on updating the OWL page design and OWL navigation based on our OWL Usability Project findings. As part of this process, we have also been working on correcting and updating our exercises.

To navigate the OWL exercises, please use the navigation bar on the left. You may also print the exercises and the exercise answers by using the Full Resource for Printing button at the bottom of the exercise pages.

If you cannot find an exercise you have used in the past, or if you have a suggestion for adding an exercise, please let us know. As always, please contact the Purdue OWL Coordinator or the Purdue OWL Webmaster if you have any questions. We value your feedback. Thank you.

Note: Users may notice that the OWL exercises no longer offer the dropdown option. The reason we had to eliminate this is because the OWL staff is dedicated to the W3C and Section 508 compliance guidelines, which were a major consideration for the original OWL redesign in 2006. Unfortunately, the dropdown options in the original OWL exercises did not comply with W3C and section 508 standards because the dropdowns cannot be used with some adaptive technologies. The new exercises can be used with adaptive technologies.
