Thanks for the apology.
I think Dr. Bob and I have quickly agreed that just relying on folks reading and acknowledging they have read is not sufficient to guarentee that people are really informed -- it is too likely that people will actually "cheat."
The quiz does guarantee some basic understanding. I just think there has to be some other way that prevents people from just saying they have done something, but doesn't put people under a spotlight. That there has to be a better way of translating the person-to-person evaluation through cyber-space.
It may be that in Dr. Bob's head, he has a list of questions that in person he would check off with an individual who is enrolling in a study. That person may not be aware that they are being "quizzed." That is what I am after here. Is there a way that this information can be presented to a person who wants to sign up and then information gained back from that person so that the person is not feeling like he or she is being tested, when in fact, the end result is the same? Am I even making sense? Am I beating a dead horse? I am starting to feel like I am the only one that really cares about this issue. If so, I will let it go.
