Quiz 2012

Site Aims

To improve understanding, knowledge and long term retention for a variety of user selected topics.


Methods
Users select a given category. They then test their knowledge of this subject. Users answers are immediately marked and any wrong answers indicated. Users can continue with this subject until they gain 10/10 and feel comfortable they know all of the answers.

In order to increase effectiveness of learning on each occasion questions and answers are delivered their order is changed.

Users can return to that category at a later date - days, months or years later to see if that information has been retained. If it has not, they can simply test themselves again to refresh their memory.


My Profile
Only Subscribers can have their own profile which indicates all the topics taken with dates and score history. Check out the Test Profile for a sample profile for a  Subscriber.

Note
It should be noted users are not expected to know the answers to many of the questions immediately. Much of the information is learnt from the question itself and by repetitively learning the  respective answer.
