Quiz Page FAQ

Why did you build another quiz site?

After working through a couple of classes and self study sessions, we found that people who successfully passed the test were focusing on repeat practice of the test questions. So we decided to focus on that.

What’s different about how we use the question bank?

We provide a simple slide deck for each section with a hard focus on what’s in the test.

For each question, we provide a hint, and sometimes a bit of an explanation as well. The hints and explanations and accompanying slides are in no way comprehensive. They’re intended to help get you remember and get through the test.

Sometimes, these hints look really, really silly. But we’ve found that they really help you to remember the answer.

We still recommend you purchase and read the Coax Publications study guide. It’s a phenomenal reference.

Who’s allowed to use this?

Anyone.

Can I use the slides in a class that I’m preparing?

Yes. We’d appreciate you letting us know if you do.

Why do you have PDF and Powerpoint slides?

PDF is read directly by many browsers.

If you want to improve (and hopefully send back to us) or modify slides for your own use or class, then Powerpoint makes them easy to edit.

What questions did you use?

We use the same Industry Canada question bank as other web sites.. Industry Canada even provides practice tests (links at bottom of the quiz page).

Why don’t you have a 100 question practice test covering all sections like the real Industry Canada test?

Because Industry Canada already has that. Scroll to the bottom of the quiz listing page and you will see the links.

 

Why did we select   Quiz Global web site to run the quizzes
  1. Quiz Global is free! It’s worth paying for… and we could start charging. But we won’t. Hopefully they won’t either.
  2. Quiz Global allows us to make the tests public, which means no registration is required. That’s important for youth privacy.
  3. You can register to track your results – but the registration does not require any private information or fee. Only an email. Use a nickname as your ID.
  4. It’s very flexible for test taking. You can show hints. You can control if you want to take it as a straight test, or get your results after each question. You can review what you got wrong at the end of the test.
  5. It has excellent mobile and handheld interfaces. You can practice the test on the bus, while eating your cereal, before going to sleep…

The authors of the test  and operators of this site have no business or other relationship with Quiz Global other than using it to host these tests.

Why don’t you put this in an app so I can practice the quizzes without being on-line?

Because no one has volunteered to do that yet. If you’re willing to step up, we’ll be happy to send you a nicely formatted source file will all the questions, answers, hints and explanations.
