Vocabulary Quiz

You may find it easier to print this vocabulary list and prepare the definitions with paper and pencil before entering your answers into the computer. Or, if you prefer, you can log on to Blackboard and print the version of the quiz that appears there.

For the quiz, you will need to be able to supply the dictionary form of the word, prompted by an English definition and the first letter of the Latin word. Note: You can take the online quiz as often as you want; the computer will record your most recent score. The quiz is only available through Tuesday midnight.
