Self-tests are to help you discover what you know and do not know. Research supports that this one of the keys to learning successfully. You are not to look anything up or to worry, but just force your brain to answer what it thinks now. You can only take a Self-Test one time.

The self-tests have questions at .01 each and those are not part of the 1000 total points. In other words, you can test yourself to find out what you know and do not know at no loss in points.
If you already know the questions and get 80% or more of them right, you can earn the Full-Test points without taking it. How? After the quizzes close, I enter the Full-Tests points for everyone who has 80% of the self-test questions right. Examples:
· With a 10-question (10X.8=8) Self-Test, 8 questions or more right on the Self-Test earns the Full-Test points without taking it.
· With a 12-question (12X.8=09.6) Self-Test, over 10 questions right or more) earns the Full-Test points without taking it.
The full-tests have questions at 1 each (or 2 each if the test is in sets where you may see one of two or more possible questions). Unlike self-tests, you can take the full-tests as many times as you want. The highest score counts. In other words, it pays to persist until you learn all the words or locations.
