English Quiz on Commonly Confused Words

I found this little quiz called “The Commonly Confused Words Test” and thought I would check out how much I knew/remembered. It was vey easy and might be a good starting point to look at English language or as an extension activity, using the results to then to investigate the words that students confused/got wrong. This is not the only quiz on-line but just one tool that was fun. The results are given in % and in graphical form. You can also see how you went compared with others taking the test.

The Commonly Confused Words Test is one of many tests on OkCupid. Anyone can write tests on OkCupid. Topics range from music, hobbies, and religion to sex and online dating. Have an idea for a test? You can create one here.

I am relieved to say that I did well, after all the corrections I give to my students it could have been embarassing.
