Design of Free Management Library's Quizzes

Written by Carter McNamara, MBA, PhD

NOTE: This information applies to quizzes that are hosted on the Library's webpages, that is, pages that have the Libary's logo and branding.

The Library associates quizzes with certain of its topics. The following information explains the philosophy of the design of the quizzes.

  1. The purpose of a quiz is to give the visitor some impression of their current knowledge of the content explained in the topic, including of the content referenced by certain links in the topic.
  2. The questions in a quiz are focused on a sampling of concepts from that topic.
  3. Explanations of concepts are the opinions of the author of the content.
  4. Thus, the questions in a quiz do not necessarily address all of the concepts in its associated topic.
  5. Thus, a quiz is not a substitute for reading all of the content in a topic.
  6. The best way to learn how to apply guidelines and explanations in a various topic is to actually apply them over time, ideally with the ongoing guidance of an expert in that topic.
