Types of Quizzes
Standard assignments consist of open-book quizzes that are similar to the vocabulary section of an SAT test. A sentence is displayed with a missing word. Students select which word chosen fom a short list of candidate words best completes the sentence. Unlike SAT tests, quizzes will not advance to the next question until the correct word is typed correctly into the computer.

To assure no plot information is revealed early, the pre-reading assignments do not use sentences from the book. To provide repetition and make vocabulary more relevant, post-reading word quizzes use sentences from the book.

The words included in quizzes are primarily selected based upon how of they appear in the book and how often the appear on SAT-type tests. Occassionally, those considerations are overridden by other factors.

If you assign the standard quizzes that cover the entire book, that's all you need to know.
