Operations Manual Quiz

This quiz is designed to verify that the member has read the material about our purpose and history, and the material in our Operations Manual concerning how we operate. This is not a memory test, as all the quiz questions are from a sentence directly on this web site, on either the home page or one of the operations manual pages. Answers are always the exact words used there, so just type or cut and paste them into the quiz answer windows. Either way works.

The quiz will not be scored in the conventional sense, i.e. a number of correct and number of wrong answers. One cannot pass until it is submitted, and it cannot be submitted successfully until all the answers are correct. So everyone will (eventually) get 100% correct, meaning they have read the material.

Helpful hints: The captions over the question groups indicate the location of the answer material. For the anSWers, use the word, phrase, or number exactly as it appears on the web site. Spell the answer correctly, including capitalization and punctuation, or the computer will not accept the answer.

For best results, use two windows. One for the quiz, and one for the page you are checking for the exact answer. This prevents you from closing the quiz inadvertently and losing your work. If you don't have a second window open, do it now by clicking here: [Home] This is the page you'll need to start. Flip back and forth between the windows as you progress through the test.

Every few answers, click the submit button at the bottom of the page. Even though you are not done with all the answers, this will tell you if your answers so far are correct, and will put the cursor at the next blank question. When done, it will simply submit the quiz as complete and you've passed.

Use your correct name. It's going onto the public list of those who have passed.

Finish soon. We're thinking up more questions every day.
