The quizzes on the "Start" Disk contain sentences dealing with
Information Technology. Sentences are complete thoughts, so
each one should convey some information. They are put in a
format that should make you think about each one, literally
"make a connection", and register a complete thought in your
memory. Usually, they build on each other, and are thematically
They are based on the NBA principle of allowing "only 3 seconds
in the lane" -- you have window of 10 seconds to take a shot
with your response. In this case, your process of reading,
processing and storing in short-term memory, retrieving in
an eye-hand coordination SHOULD result in improving your rate
of Reading Comprehension. The quiz is meant to create some
energy and emotion in order to pass it. The quiz gives you
no break, and can only be passed by your recognizing key concepts
and responding to them quickly.
It is also based on the premise that the Computer is in control --
-- the reading and matching on the printouts are when you are in
control -- but the testing is under computer control. The testing
part does little learning; it only verifies what you know.
There are different "learning styles", and this time-sensitive,
linear-logical, computer-managed comprehension test may not work
for you. This has happned. I am very interested in your
thoughts and reactions to this quiz!
