Nevertheless, for short answer questions, answer as closely as possible to the wording of the Bible and/or the lesson text. If you add extra words or explanation, the computer may not recognize your answer. Misspelled words may also confuse the computer, so spell words exactly as they are found in the Bible. The computer may find and ask you to check some misspellings, but we do not assure this. Capitalization does not matter.

After you click on the "submit" button, you will be shown a page that indicates which answers are correct and which ones (if any) are incorrect. Your score will also be shown. If any answers are incorrect, you will be given an opportunity to return to this page and correct them. When you are ready to leave the lesson (whether or not your score is 100%), you will be given an opportunity to record your answers and then see and save the correct answers.

If, after completing the lesson, you have questions about the answers to any questions or about the grade you received, please click on the following link and carefully read the FAQ about our grading system.

May God bless your study of His word.
