A quiz is a form of game or mind sport in which the players (as individuals or in teams) attempt to answer questions correctly. Quizzes are also brief assessments used in education and similar fields to measure growth in knowledge, abilities, and/or skills.Online quizzes are a popular form of entertainment for web surfers. Online quizzes are generally free to play and can form an important medium of health information dispersion.

Best Practice is brought to you by the BMJ Evidence Centre – a division of the BMJ Group that is working to provide health care professionals with innovative new products and tools that make evidence useful in practice. Individuals can register online for a 30-day personal free trial. To access your trial you will require a BMJ MyAccount. You can register and then follow the steps to set up your free trial.

I found this quiz on the BMJ Best practices site. It lets you choose the speciality you want to be quizzed on and also times your answers, letting you score more for quick answers. It was fun, and i managed to score 80%. Their scoreboard showed a long list of quizzers with perfect 10 scores, so maybe i need to get back to my textbooks now.

Interactive Quizzes for Health Communication

Posted by drneelesh on June 15, 2009

Multiple choice is a form of assessment in which respondents are asked to select the best possible answer (or answers) out of the choices from a list. The multiple choice format is most frequently used in educational testing, in market research, and in elections– when a person chooses between multiple candidates, parties, or policies.

Heres an example of a Health related Interactive quiz created with CC images and Free web tools. It barely took me 10 minutes, and it makes the test so much more interesting. It seems like a good idea to have a number of such narrow interest health inquiry quizzes. This would give us a captive market audience and defined segments by using simple free tools.
