Tell me more about the Explorer Quiz.

The Explorer Quiz may take days or weeks to complete depending on how many questions there are and how many you complete each time. Each time you quit, the computer will save your place so you can start where you left off. The quiz shows you immediately if your answer is right or wrong. If you answered wrong, you will be given a chance to answer that question again later in the quiz. If you don't know the answer to a question, you may skip it. But you will be asked that same question later in the quiz. The quiz has two sections. First, in the Base Camp section you will answer a series of questions in certain subjects to earn items. When you have earned all the items, you will advance to the next section. Second, the Checkpoint section you will answer a wide variety of questions. You may need certain items that you have earned in Base Camp to help you on your way.


Tell me more about the Simple Quiz.

Simple Quizes are usually completed in a single session. The 'next' button you will take you to the next unanswered questions. The 'previous' button allows you to go back to a question if you decide to change your answer. When you have completed all the questions, you may end the test by pressing the 'save test' button. If you need to quit the test before you are finished, you may press the 'quit' and your answers will also be saved.
