Using Hints

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.
