GRE Quizzes from Magoosh

As many of you know, we recently re-designed the GRE lessons experience for our GRE product. Well, we didn’t stop there. I have some more exciting news! We just released another change to lessons – you can now take a short quiz to test yourself after watching a series of GRE lesson videos.

How do these quizzes work?

First watch a series of GRE video lessons on our Lessons page. After you complete the lessons you’ll see a link to a Quiz. Below is an example of the Arithmetic and Fractions lesson series with a link to a quiz as the last step.

The quiz asks five questions related to the lessons you just watched. If you answer three or more correctly, you’ll see a green check to indicate that you’ve passed.

What if I don’t pass the quiz?

Don’t despair! You can re-take the quiz, and we’ll try to give you new questions. Regardless of whether or not you pass, we also highly recommend watching the video explanations for each question you miss as well as re-watching the related lessons if necessary.

Once you complete the quiz, you’ll see a results page from which you can easily review any question.

Why did Magoosh create these GRE quizzes?

Previously students could watch a lesson video series, then visit the custom practice page to set up their own quiz. However, we wanted to provide a better, more structured experience so that students could jump into a quiz with one click and feel a sense of progress as they pass these quizzes.

We’d also been receiving feedback from our students asking for this feature. Here’s an example of the feedback we’d been receiving:

And we’ve already started receiving great feedack:

I’d love to hear what you think, feel free to leave a comment below!

By the way, students who use Magoosh GRE improve their scores by an average of 8 points on the new scale (150 points on the old scale.) Click here to learn more.

    Hi Bhavin,

    I was wondering if the beta feature enables ur for new questions set or its agin from the practice session questions which we get in the quizzes?
    Anyways, my wife is happy having Magoosh as her GRE catalyst…

      Hi Mohit – Good question! The beta feature for full length practice tests pulls from the same pool of questions as the quizzes and practice questions. We recently added over 100 additional verbal questions, about a month ago. I hope that helps!

    While I think it’s great that you’ve added quizzes, I think it would also be helpful to have a series of questions or quizzes after every video. That way one could learn a specific skill and then practice instead of having to complete several videos before being able to practice the skill. Just a thought.

      Hi, Tiffany

      While we do agree that there is some benefit to checking your understanding after individual lesson videos, we thought it would be more efficient to have quizzes after entire sections of lesson videos, especially for students who may not have very much time to study, and want to know quickly whether they need to review that section or not.

      Also, within individual questions, the GRE rarely tests just one specific subject– usually it’s a broad application of that concept blended with a few others, so having quizzes per section is a more realistic way of grouping GRE questions/knowledge.

      I hope that makes sense! Thank you for the feedback, and feel free to let us know if you have any other suggestions or questions! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Sammy – Unfortunately, the quizzes are not available on the iPhone app, however you can access them using the browser on your iPhone. We’ve kept the app simple (lesson videos only) so that we can focus on improving the main web product. We know it’s a trade off and we wish we could do it all!

    Looking forward to trying this out. Are these quizzes comprised of new questions or are they taken from the existing practice set of questions?

      Hi Jorge,

      These quizzes pull from the existing practice questions, however the first pull from questions that you have not yet answered.

      I hope that helps!

    A well thought of and spontaneous upgrade brough by Magoosh.
    I always wished one of these ideas were implemented but never gave a feedback for them ๐Ÿ™ .One of the many great practices about Magoosh is frequent replies and swift action which is the need of the hour.

    Thanks Bhavin for this helpful update
