Click on the link above "The All About the Brain Test" - it will take you to the Quizlet page for this test.
It should say "50 terms" in the top left corner and show my name, R_Carrey. The title of the test is "What are we going to do tonight, Brain?"
There are a series of square boxes under the title of the test. Select "Test".
The Quizlet site will auto create a test. It will create a different version each time, but from the same set of 50 study cards.
At the bottom left of the test screen is a yellow button that says "Options" Click that.
Make sure that Written is NOT selected, but that Matching, Multiple Choice and True/False are. Actually, if you like, you can do just Matching and Multiple Choice if you like.
Change "20" to "50" out of 50 questions
Under the pull down "Answer With" select "Both"
Make sure that "Show Images" IS selected.
Click "Create New Test" at bottom of that pop up screen.
Quizlet will generate a random test. If you choose three types of questions (Matching, Multiple Choice and True/False) there will be 16 or 17 of any given kind. If you select two types of questions (Matching, Multiple Choice) there should be 25 of each, but it doesn't matter as long as there are 50 overall.
Answer the questions right on the computer.
As you do the matching questions, the choices you've already made will grey out on the right hand side so you know you've already used them.
For the multiple choice questions, select the BEST match for the definition / term.
For the True / False, think of the arrow as an "equals" sign. If the statements on either side of the arrow do not mean the same thing, the answer is False.
If you want a close up look at the diagrams, right click the image, and choose "Open in new tab". A new tab will open just for the image to the immediate right of the tab with the test. This way you don't lose your test progress. You can then use the combination of the Command and + key to enlarge the image as needed.
When you get to the bottom, click "Check Answers".
You have two choices at this point -
Print out your completed test with your mark on the top (Quizlet calculates it for you) if you are satisfied with the result. Put your name on the test and submit it to the teacher / sub.
If you are not satisfied with your result you may try the test again by repeating the steps above. Please be sure to print off your final result. When you hand in your final result, please note how many attempts you took.
You are free to study the test terms prior to taking the test (select the squares for Learn, Flashcards or Match prior to selecting Test).
You are also free to take the test as many times as you like to get your preferred result. Just remember, unless you sign up for a Quizlet account, it won't track your progress, so if you do the test say a second time and get a lower mark, you'll need to either accept it or do it yet again.
You must show the teacher in class that you have either completed one attempt at the test and/or you have done at least two rounds of studying. IF you do so, and you choose to complete the rest of the test process from home over the weekend, you may do so.
If you complete the test and are satisfied with your results with class time remaining, please find quiet work to occupy yourself until the end of the day.
