Designed by a PhD in Educational Psychology, the foundation for Learn My Test is a principle called, "the testing effect", which shows that regular practice testing increases comprehension and retention of information. Unlike other popular flash card sites, Learn My Test helps you form a deeper conceptual understanding of the material through categorization. Learn My Test has the capacity to break down your test results into categories and focus future test questions on areas that need additional study, optimizing study time.

Frequently Asked Questions
Learn My Test is a study tool designed to help students use their study time more effectively resulting in better test performance. The Learn My Test was developed by a Ph.D. in educational psychology based upon principles of cognitive psychology research. At the core of the Learn My Test study method is the “testing effect”, a finding of memory researchers showing that practice testing positively impacts comprehension and information retention.
Students start using Learn My Test by entering key terms and definitions from their study materials. Once these terms are entered, the user categorizes the differences between key terms in common categories.

The practice of rating your confidence level and comparing it to actual test performance helps students maintain a realistic assessment of their readiness for an upcoming exam. When there is a big gap between confidence and actual test scores, students can set goals to reconcile the gap. The more practice tests taken, the better students should become at predicting their scores.
It’s easy. Just click on the “do not rate” button after a completed test and Learn My Test will no longer ask for a confidence rating.
1) Go to Privacy Settings. 2) Scroll to Other Settings. 3) Deselect, I do not want to track my confidence level. (Just changed directions in red to italic.)

Yes! Learn My Test uses the same categories that you created yourself when entering the content for the test bank.
Yes! Identifying areas of weakness is encouraged. Simply select the results by category, deselect the sections that you do not want to include on your next practice test and select “take test.”
Unfortunately, since the user enters the content and the process is automated, sometimes a test question that has no correct answer or multiple correct answers is included. If you get a back question you can fix it by changing the content that you have entered in.
Bad questions are usually the result of more than one correct answer. Multiple correct answers emerge when definitions, differences or examples are not specific enough for differentiation between two definitions or their differences.
