Do yourself a favor, take a hint.
If you don't know, don't guess — take a hint. This way, we'll know you're unsure and we'll give you a follow-up question on the word. Hints don't hurt you, they help us make the experience better for you. Plus, you'll have a better chance of getting the question right!
If you’re unsure of the answer to an assessment question, you can choose from a number of hints. The option to choose a hint will appear after a few seconds. Clicking on a hint cuts the question’s point value in half.
Different question types have different kinds of hints.
- 50/50 - eliminate all but two answers.
- Word in the Wild - see a sentence with the word.
- Definition - see the definition of the word.
Note: Hints are only available on assessment questions.
