Theatre History Quiz for Beginners

We hope you enjoy this quiz. If you find something is wrong, please let us know. Good Luck..


Answer the multiple choice questions, guessing if necessary; then click on the "Process Questions" button at the end of the quiz to see your score in the adjacent message box. The program will not reveal which questions you got wrong, only how many points you have. Go back and change your answers until you get them all right. (The message box will rejoice at that point and the page will change color in delight.)

Points to note:

(1) Questions with only one possible answer are one point each.

(2) Questions with one or more possible answers (represented by check boxes) give a point for each correct answer, but also subtract a point for each wrong answer!

(3) The program will not attempt to score your efforts at all if you have not tried at least half of the questions.

(4) This quiz is for your own use only.

No record of your progress is kept or reported to anyone.
