Frequently Asked Questions
About our database of questions
- How large is your database of questions?
- Over 5000 questions and growing. Each Autotutor practice exam or quiz consists of randomly selected questions, and each time a question is presented the order of the answer options is randomized too. We think it unlikely that anyone will find repeat questions to be a problem.
- Are worked solutions provided for every question?
- Yes, except for some easy questions where we thought a worked solution was not needed. If you find an error please let us know and we will fix it.
- What are NAPLAN numeracy tests?
- These are Australia wide tests held each May for years 3, 5, 7 and 9. We offer unofficial practice tests for years 5, 7 and 9 that are of a similar standard to actual past official exams. This site is not officially endorsed by the NAPLAN program. It has been produced independently.
- What is the USA SAT test?
- This is a pencil and paper based multiple choice College Board test to measure a high school student's readiness to enter college or tertiary education. Only the math section (50% of the overall test) is covered here. The results we give are not scaled. Our tests are for training purposes only.
- Can a keen user or teacher contribute extra questions for use in Autotutor?
- Yes. We will do our best to accept appropriate contributions and to incorporate them in the relevant exams. For this purpose we provide a template that contributors can use. You may also wish to suggest further widely used exams for us to add. Feedback is welcome.
