This page demonstrates self-scored quizzes! They are entirely for your own use. No grades are generated or reported.

Most of the following are directed toward college students, sometimes even in my courses. If you are a person who likes testing yourself, these may amuse you. You may even learn something. If you are a low self-tester, there are almost certainly more interesting ways to spend your time.
(These quizzes include words used in some of the world's leading weekly news sources. They are therefore words that educated readers should know, but I have a bet with a [slightly jaded] colleague who says that UCSD students, being illiterate and incompetent and hopeless, will find them impossible. If you are a UCSD student, you can prove her completely wrong by getting them all correct on the first try!)
