Vocabulary Words

There are four types of words a student may see on a Vocabulary Practice Quiz:

  • First-try new words. These are from the Vocabulary Practice Quiz the student chose to take. If the student gets one of these words correct, it is placed on his or her Words Learned List. If the student gets one of these words wrong, he or she will be given a second chance to get the word correct on the next Vocabulary Practice Quiz the student takes.
  • Second-try new words. These are words that the student missed on his or her previous Vocabulary Practice Quiz. The student is given this second chance to get them correct. If the student gets a second-try new word correct, the word is placed on his or her Words Learned List. If the student gets one of these words wrong, he or she will not see the word again unless it is part of the word list for another Vocabulary Practice Quiz that the student takes.
  • First-try review words. If the teacher has used the Vocabulary Practice Review Percentage Preference to specify that review words should be on quizzes, the student will begin to see review words on each new Vocabulary Practice Quiz two weeks after taking his or her first quiz. Review words are taken from the student's Words Learned List. If the student gets a first-try review word correct, the word stays on his or her Words Learned List. If the student gets one of these words wrong, it is taken off of his or her Words Learned List, but the student will be given a second chance to get it correct on the next Vocabulary Practice Quiz he or she takes.
  • Second-try review words. If the student missed a review word on the first-try, he or she is given a second chance to get it correct. If the student gets a second-try review word correct, the word is put back on his or her Words Learned List. If the student gets one of these words wrong, it stays off of his or her Words Learned List and the student will not see the word again unless it is part of the word list for another Vocabulary Practice Quiz that he or she takes.
