as-Salaamu 'alaykum wa rahmatullaah.

About the online weekly quizzes that go with our course, we thought you might like the following points of insight regarding them:

1. A lot of time is put into the making of these quizzes. They are not intended to be difficult or confusing. They are meant to re-enforce the main points and the most important information of each lecture. If you feel that a question was confusing or perhaps it was not covered during our classes clearly, please write about it in the "comments" field at the bottom of the test screen. Especially those of you who consistently score 90%+, we are relying on you to identify any mistakes in the questions or perhaps a second possible answer to a question.

2. Most people are scoring more than 80% on the quizzes. However, a couple suprisingly low scores have come in. I can only assume that the students may have signed in without reviewing the material. If for some reason, there was any problem with your internet connection during the test, your electricity, or anything else, please notify us and we will try to help you resolve the problem.

3. The quiz questions that were in your quiz were generated randomly from a larger pool of questions. For example, 25 questions were available for the quiz exam. You were given 20 of them randomly. This means that someone else who took the same test may have had up to five different questions out of the 20. Moreover, they are listed in random order for each person. So if you have asked another student about their opinion on question #13, then most likely their #13 was not your #13, and perhaps the question you are asking about did not even come on their quiz!

4. The pool of questions that is being built up week by week will be used to generate the final exam questions in shaa' Allaah. So after the fourth week of classes, we estimate now that every student will have a score out of 60 points for the aqīdah and fiqh classes, 30 points for the tafsīr and ḥadīth classes. The aqīdah and fiqh final exam would then be 40 questions each randomly selected from a pool of perhaps 80 questions or so. Tafsīr and ḥadīth would then be 20 questions each (to complete 50 total points for each of those two smaller courses). This may change, as we may not make each quiz 10 and 20 questions for weeks two and three. However, you get the idea.

5. These are closed-book quizzes. They do not require you to memorize very specific pieces of information. Usually, any point stressed in the lectures will show up on the quizzes. Be honest with yourself and show Allaah your sincerity during these quizzes. You are allowed to ask someone - not just anyone - for help if you have difficulty remembering an answer. You can ask Allaah only, by saying, "O Allaah, remind me..." or the likes. An upright and earnest Muslim would never want worldly credit or praise for something they did not earn.

6. The comments so far have been very encouraging. People seem to love the quizzes as they did last year. Again we stress that any unexpected difficulties or frustration due to something in our quiz (not due to a lack of preparation) be written about in the "comment" field.

I believe if you close your browser, you will be locked out (your test will be over). Be very careful!

What about when your doing a quiz and then clicking the button to confirm the answer and the browser is acting weird, (not moving on to the next question, or taking a while to move on- it was just acting relay weird) and it dose not go through to the next question. When its refreshed it seem to have taken in a wrong answer from what you have clicked, can it be undone? or It seem that a wrong answer had been entered when It was not the one which I clicked. How can this be resolved? Because It scored me wrong answers when It was not what I had clicked, when trying to move on to the next question. I felt uneasy to bring it up.

Within the time limit, you can skip forward and go back through all the questions when you take the test.

You can click on the "next >" button to skip the question and come back to it later.

You can click on the "< previous" button to go back to the previous question.

You can go to any question you like at any time by using the grid at the bottom that lists all the questions. Simply click on the small ">" button next to the number of the question you want to go to.

This may all be done within the time allowed for each exam (clicking away in the top right side of the page).
