“Quizzes require the least amount of effort. They do require effort, but just not as much as the responses and that’s why I like them more.”

On Forums...
“I enjoyed the open discussions because I could see if I was doing it right and it helped me reading other peoples post.”
“I like the open forum because I like the discussion of the topic and being able to see what everyone really thinks.”
On Forums...
“Open forums tend to be like 4 kids spending hours typing and stating all of the information (I am, I'll admit, one of these people), then a few halfhearted attempts to find something original to add, then several 2 line long copy and pasted entries.”
On Forums...
“I most enjoy the quizzes, because I find satisfaction in seeing exactly what I do and do not know so that I may better learn.”
On Quizzes...
“I enjoy the quizzes because they are quick. I know that makes me seem like a lazy high school student... but in reality that's why I like them.”
