Frustrating - not able to progress due to too long a period between being able to take further quizes.

How can I work towards a Silver Star on a specific area when the Kwizbot will not allow me to take any further quizzes for what looks like more than 8 days since the last quiz taken ?

It looks like when I take a few quizzes I am then hamstrung against making further progress for far too long a period of time.

This question relates to:
French lesson "Ce/cet/cette and ces = this/that and these/those (demonstrative adjectives)"

Hi Pauline - instead of using the microkwiz on the lesson pages, either kwiz against your dashboard recocommendations list (assuming it contains this lesson), or use the "add to notebook" buttons to save the lessons you want to practise and then kwiz against your notebook(s).

There are no limits on normal kwizzes, only lesson microkwizzes (they weren't meant to be used for serious practice, and KwizBot doesn't intelligently pick questions for them so we have to limit people retaking them and seeing the same few questions instead of the fulls set available for the lesson - but since people seem to like using them in this way, we are looking at improving them soon).

Kwizzing against notebooks or levels or your recommendations on your dashboard is the best way to use Kwiziq for now.

Hope that helps!

Yes, that helps. 

Bute where would I find an overview on how to best use Lawless Progress ?

So far, it seems to be trial and error and asking questions when frustrated.

I'm not quite sure what your problem is.  All the information you need is available on the website.  If you've taken the full assessment, you'll be informed of your level and can work to imptove on that level, or any other level, with the recommended lessons followed by kwizzes.  Just "Choose your own adventure".  

When I subscribed, I started with the full assessment "Test Your French Against the CFER Standard".  When I read the results I saw that I had many gaps at all the levels.  I began by learning the lessons needed to fill the gaps in my knowledge starting with level A1.  I regularly did the kwizzes at that level until I was assessed at 75%, after which I started on the gaps at Level A2 and repeated the process.  I continued systematically with this method, moving up the levels, whilst returning from time to time to the earlier levels to improve my scores.  It worked. Trial and error won't ever work.

If you have not subscribed as a premium user and are limited to ten kwizzes a month, it is essential to be systematically moving up the levels, otherwise you create gaps in your knowledge.  Also, I would avoid the micro kwizzes because some of them have a few as three questions and they are counted in your total of kwizzes taken.

I hope this helps
