Computerized Testing and Tracking

Pre-Quizzes and quizzes are delivered via the computer with results automatically reported. Both a numeric score as well as completed objectives are reported.

The pre-quiz feature facilitates a faster student pace for those starting with more knowledge by identifying areas needing further study. Likewise, it allows a student to skip
sections where knowledge is sound.
