FAQ

  • What is Learn My Test?
    • Learn My Test is a study tool designed to help students use their study time more effectively resulting in better test performance. The Learn My Test was developed by a Ph.D. in educational psychology based upon principles of cognitive psychology research. At the core of the Learn My Test study method is the “testing effect”, a finding of memory researchers showing that practice testing positively impacts comprehension and information retention.
  • What will I be doing when I use Learn My Test?
    • Students start using Learn My Test by entering key terms and definitions from their study materials. Once these terms are entered, the user categorizes the differences between key terms in common categories. From the informational content entered, Learn my Test generates practice tests; taking practice tests assist students in learning their test material and in assessing their study progress. Learn My Test users have the option of sharing test banks with their classmates.
  • Can Learn My Test remind me when I have an upcoming test date?
    • Yes. 1. Go to privacy settings; in your left navigation. 2) Select option - I would like to be notified about upcoming test. 3. Select the number of days in advance of test date for notification. 4. Please note: in order to activate the test reminder, users must also enter the test date when creating their test bank.
  • How do I get started?
    • Click on the “register now” button at the top of the page - OR - Sign up using your Google or Facebook account. After entering at least four terms and/or definitions, Learn My Test can generate a multiple choice practice test using the content that you provided.
  • What is the difference between a test bank, practice test and a pop-quiz?
    • The test bank is the content entered by the user that is used to generate practice tests. The test bank is the source material from which Learn My Test generates random questions for practice tests and surprise pop quizzes of five questions.
  • Can I turn the pop quizzes off or change the frequency?
    • Yes, simply access your privacy settings page and go to the pop quiz settings. Check the box that specifies, turn off.
  • Can I change the number of questions in a pop quiz?
    • Sorry, no. A pop quiz is always five questions and cannot be adjusted.
  • Can I take a practice test before I’m done entering all my key terms?
    • Yes! As long as there is at least four terms and definitions entered, Learn My Test can generate a practice test.
  • Why should I rate my confidence after a completed test?
    • The practice of rating your confidence level and comparing it to actual test performance helps students maintain a realistic assessment of their readiness for an upcoming exam. When there is a big gap between confidence and actual test scores, students can set goals to reconcile the gap. The more practice tests taken, the better students should become at predicting their scores.
  • How do I turn off the confidence rating after a test?
    • It’s easy. Just click on the “do not rate” button after a completed test and Learn My Test will no longer ask for a confidence rating.
  • I turned rating my confidence off, but would like to turn it back on. How do I do that?

    • You can view the results of a practice test immediately after taking it. After reviewing the results of your most recent test, you can review all previous test results for that specific test bank.
  • Can I view my test results by category?
    • Yes! Learn My Test uses the same categories that you created yourself when entering the content for the test bank.
  • If am I doing poorly in a certain category, can I receive test questions that are only related to that category?
    • Yes! Identifying areas of weakness is encouraged. Simply select the results by category, deselect the sections that you do not want to include on your next practice test and select “take test.”
  • Can Learn My Test ever generate bad test questions?
    • Unfortunately, since the user enters the content and the process is automated, sometimes a test question that has no correct answer or multiple correct answers is included. If you get a back question you can fix it by changing the content that you have entered in.
  • Why do I get bad test questions?
    • Bad questions are usually the result of more than one correct answer. Multiple correct answers emerge when definitions, differences or examples are not specific enough for differentiation between two definitions or their differences.
  • Can I change the content that generated the bad question?
