New Ham Academy Overview
assists teaching the Amateur Radio theory using the VEC questions
pools. Ham Academy uses on-line interactive sessions for reviewing
the questions pools.
Students first register their name (which is used
as a file name for storing session statistics). A session is begun
by selecting the question pool and then the subset of pool questions
to be used in the interactive session. The questions pools have been
updated to the latest set from the ARRL web site.
During a session the selected questions are displayed
and the student chooses from the four possible answers - A thru D.
HA keeps statistics on the correct and missed questions. At the end
of the session the student can repeat the session using only the
missed questions. This selective repetition helps the student with
weak areas in learning the material.
At any time during a session, the student can
suspend it and exit from the program. Later, the session can be
resumed and testing continued. The session statistics are stored
in the browser "cookie" file for up to one year.
