Quizzes and Games

These games and activities were prepared by an instructor to help you identify your strengths and areas where you need additional training. However, the format, content, wording, and answers of these exercises are not intended to resemble any actual test. So your performance on these quizzes does not predict your score on actual testing.

You may cue words differently than they appear in these exercises. If you have a question, consult a qualified instructor.

Good luck! We hope you have fun with these cueing games and activities.
