Lately I've been testing my knowledge on Smarterer. I've done this campaign before but, uh, I wasn't very smart. Now I've picked up a few things & did quite well. I answered enough questions correctly to get some cool new badges for BzzAgent, Blogger, Facebook & Twitter. (I attempted a bit of HTML, but gave up rather quickly. Like 2 questions quickly.) So I probably could have done better, but I only answered so many questions before I was distracted by the kids. But here are my scores anyways:
BzzAgent - 268 to 544
Blogger - 163 to 466
Twitter - completely forgot to look before I started to 720
Smarterer has tests spread over various topics. Some of the standard tests include: blogging, social media, browsers & web development. There's also a place where you can make your own questions. I'm assuming that's where these came into play: 90's music, knitting, anatomy, TV & movies. (The Goonies & SOA are on my list to take.)
& it's all based on an 800 point scale with badges awarded per level.
- Beginner - less than 300 points (just that, a beginner)
- Familiar - 300 to 449 points (basic knowledge)
- Proficient - 450 to 699 points (comfortable)
- Expert - 700 to 779 (fluent)
- Master - 780 points or more (pro)
