  • 8. Intro ducti on to Wind ows Vista quizzes: lesson 1 quiz results Lesson 1 Quiz Results Important: This quiz uses a diminishing multiple choice format. What this means is that if you miss a question, this evaluation page will explain why the answer you selected was incorrect. The evaluation has been carefully designed so that it will not identify the correct answer unless you choose that answer yourself. If you want a better quiz score, you are expected to return to your lesson, review the material, and then take the quiz again. Please understand that it would be very easy for me to just spoon-feed you the correct answers each time you miss a question. But if I were to do so, then you would become dependent on me. In the long run, that approach would do more harm than good. I want you to leave this class with a solid understanding of this material and the independence to solve your own problems. This quiz evaluation page has been specifically engineered to fit my teaching philosophy. Thank you, -Your Instructor Evaluation of your answers: 1.
