Hi,

I am working my way through the poker basics and these quizes are quite useful for applying what we learnt, however if you manage to pass the quiz, it would be great if we had the ability to see the questions we answered and if we got any wrong, see the right answer, or retake the questions.

The last quiz I did I passed on 50% which isn't great if I failed to grasp half of what I read but I cannot go and learn what I did wrong.

Thanks.

Hi,

I did think in the past, make a mistake and if I now know the answer to that question, can beat the quiz the next time?

So by trial and error you could succeed with multiple attempts without actually learning. So possibly the computer quiz master changes the questions within the time period you can re-sit the test.

Stick with it and ask here at PSO if you want to talk through a quiz question on the day you think you got a wrong result. Or perhaps go through the course content that applies to the question. There maybe a bug in the quiz that needs to be fixed.

Space, I agree it slows learning. I think it should be changed, but it is unlikely. If the answers were given it would require a storehouse of questions that would need to be refreshed on some schedule. This would consume a part of the budget, which would likely come from prize money.

Providing the questions one missed is an improvement that helps one learn.

Stars is a business, not a charity. There educational efforts are intended to increase the number of people depositing and paying rake. That requires bringing in more than dropout. It's all about numbers.

That's reality folks. Live with it or show them how to make it meet the school's objectives.

Hi ~Spaceghos247 ,

Welcome to PokerSchoolOnline!

I can understand it can be quite frustrating when you're unsure which of the questions you've got correct of not, but we have no plans to make the question answers available. There are a few reasons for this but the main one is that we do not want our members to just learn the answers for the sake of passing the quizzes and not actually learn the concepts. If you're truly committed to learning more it's worth while to keep going over the course content and keep studying after you have passed the quiz and of course if you suspect you're not quite getting something or have questions by all means ask them in the forum. Many of our members are happy to talk strategy and help other members, in fact the more you discuss these things the more you truly learn.

Here is a link to help familiarize you with all the features and services available at PSO. Feel free to look around the forum and post any of your comments or questions.



You are invited to join the PokerSchoolOnline Community Home Games Club, and information on how to join the club may be found HERE.


Cheers,

Chris
