Test your knowledge…

January 9, 2012 by  
Filed under Router Tips

I have taken a segment out of the first video and added a quiz at the beginning and end of the video…Click here to watch the video and test your knowledge…

Once you are done with the video and quiz use the comment section to give me you opinion on the quiz feature, is it a good idea or bad idea with constructive comments…

    If you don’t mind the extra work I think it is a good idea. I am always happy to test the knowledge I get from a lesson.
    Thanks Stanley,

    i believe the quiz at the beginning may lead to some confusion and has no context until you see the video, specially for new comers thx
    Thanks for the comments Larry,

    You can either answer the quiz right from the beginning to test your mind before watching…then again after the quiz.

    Quiz Tip: To skip the quiz just click the X in the top right corner then watch the video and answer after the video…

    You’ve got to be kidding! Welcome back to third grade! I don’t pay subscription fees the see what you’ve named your cartoon router bit, nor to return to grade school. Keep Bob on the screen, and teach techniques and projects!
    Again Jim thanks for the comments and as always Bob will be teaching on the paid side of the website and we will be keeping new ideas coming weekly with your subscription.

    Yep, the cartoon is on the lighter side and designed for the beginner and the interested router enthusiasts on the free side of the blog. You will not see that in your paid subscription just solid router tips each week.

    I think the quiz is a great idea to get the important information across to the viewers. If you can’t answer the questions prior to the video you should remember them after. Cheers Bruce (Wood Chuck)

    I agree with an earlier response. The quiz at the beginning is confusing since you have no context for the questions. I would suggest relying on the quiz at the end of the segment with a possible either suggested or automatic replay triggered by a low score. Rather than a quiz at the beginning, perhaps a graphic with bullet points of what will be the key points of the segment as a heads up to the viewer of what is important to retain.

    nice work I missed a few at first but aced it after video but I always thought of metric as an english measurement. maybe a metric bit in a standard collet would work. thanx for tips

    I was not able to answer all the questions correct the first or second time after seeing the video twice. I had to watch the video three times. I have never used a router and its a great learning experience. I really think this is worth while, especially the safety part. I am retired and never have tried this until now. Keep up the great work even if its third grade stuff for us old guys that want to learn from the best.

    Thanks for the kind words Ken,

    Remember, everything is hard to do the first, second and maybe the third time but with practice things become easy regardless how difficult it might be…And always use common sense and be safe.

    Regards, Rick

    Excellent, especially for us beginners with this particular subject matter. Doing pre and post testing is used a lot in medical continuing education. To me, it reminds me up front that I don’t know everything and stimulates me to pay more attention during the video to help me with things I might have gotten wrong and need the education or may have gotten correct but might not be completely clear on why I was correct. I appreciate your efforts.


    Thanks for the comments Perry, didn’t know that the med industry used the pre and post quiz system.
