This week, you should take the combined lesson 6-7 test using the Homework & Tests tool.
Special Note: Different from previous lesson tests, this one will present all of the Chinese characters as image files, and all questions will be in multiple-choice or true/false format. The same test design will be used for the final exam.
Because the Chinese characters will be shown as image files, you will not be able to use Google translate or other online tools to look up characters. If you have been relying on such tools as a crutch while taking quizzes and tests this semester, you must wean yourself off them now, before you take the final exam. The very best way to do this is to hit the vocabulary flashcards hard, using Memrise, as described in the "Vocabulary Review" guides throughout the semester.
There is no way that you can learn and memorize all the characters for the semester in a one- or two-night cram session. You need to start using the flashcards now, so that you will be ready for the final exam.
This lesson test is graded, but it can be taken in an open-book format. You should finish your first attempt for this lesson test by 11:30 pm on Sunday.
Reattempt the Lesson Test as Needed
You can also take this lesson test multiple times. If you are unsatisfied with your score, review the items that were incorrect, and then try again. I will count only the highest score among your multiple attempts. Subsequent attempts can be taken at any time up to the last day of instruction this semester.
Review by Taking the Lesson Test in Closed-book Format
Later in the semester, forcing yourself to adopt a closed-book format while retaking this test will be an excellent way to prepare for the midterm and final exams. Remember that the midterm and final exams will allow you to take them only once, without any retakes.
