November 23, 2018 - The current quiz is a crossword puzzle on Human Factors Terms taken from the Level 1 course Opens in New Window in the Avalanche Institute Opens in New Window. It is from the "Human Factors"Opens in New Window module. It is one example of the quizzes used throughout the Level 1 course, although there are other formats as well - multi-choice, matching, fill-in-the-blank, etc. As well as some which are submitted via the dropbox for human review.

Unlike most of our Level 1 quizzes this one may be more difficult if you have not just recently completed some relevant material in a course. The terminology may not come to mind right away, even if it seems clear afterwards. The "hint" button will provide the next letter if you need some help. This particular quiz may also be more difficult for our supporters who do not speak English as a first language - sorry about that! But in any case it is a good learning experience that we hope will give you some things to think about.

The quizzes below use a free script which we rewrote extensively. (Some of our improvements were added to the original distribution site by the author!) In December of 2014 it was further customized for our levels of login and to fix some bugs.
