Basic Listening Tests

Basic listening tests help drill simple aural comprehension by playing audio for lexical items (not personal examples) and prompting you to type what you hear. Lexical items must have audio attached in order for them to be included in a basic listening test. Configurable options include the required answer precision, the primary hint, and whether to always show the lexical type. Answer precision indicates how exact you have to be with your answer in order for it to be counted as correct. Possible choices for answer precision are Identical, High, Medium, or Low. Of course, Identical means that your answer much match the item text exactly. The other choices mean different things depending on the language of the answer. Typically, High means that both upper case and lower case letters will be acceptable. Low might mean that e and é are equivalent. You must do a little experimenting to know exactly how these options works relative to your language of study.
