QuizBug 2 - Info + Help
QuizBug 2 is a question search and reading tool using modified questions from the QuizDB database. It supports a wide range of search filters and has nearly 70k questions.
QuizBug 2 uses the following keybinds:
- [s]: get a new set of questions matching specified search parameters. s must be pressed onload for there to be any questions to read.
- [r]: randomize question order
- [n]: move on to the next question
- [b]: go back one question
- [space]: buzzes - the question read will pause for you to think of an answer. [space] must be pressed again to show the answer.
QuizBug 2 uses the right-side area's 6 inputs and selector to define search filters.
Input #1 controls the read speed - that number is the number of milliseconds between questions.
Input #2 is the search query - the word or phrase you would like to search for in questions.
Input #3 controls the categories selected. You can select one or more categories by putting their names (Science, History, Literature, etc) separated by commas.
For example, if I wanted science and history questions, I would enter Science,History in the input.
Input #4 is much like #3 and controls the selected subcategories.
If you want questions from a subcategory, do not include the category that subcat is part of in the category list!
QuizBug 2 matches questions that are part of either the supplied cats or the supplied subcats, so someone who searches for "Science" and "Science Biology" will get questions in all the sciences.
Input #5 controls the selected difficulty levels. The question database supports 9 difficulty levels:
Like #3 and #4, separate your desired difficulties via commas - if I wanted levels 2 and 9 (for whatever reason), I would enter 2,9 in the input.
- Middle School
- Easy High School
- Medium High School
- Hard High School
- National High School
- Easy College
- Medium College
- Hard College
Input #6 controls selected tournaments. These once again are comma separated values, but in three types:
For example, if I wanted the 2011 MUT, all sets from 2018, and all HFTs, I would enter 2011 MUT,2018,HFT in the input.
- One specific set (eg 2011 MUT) - enter the set year and name
- All sets from one year (eg 2018) - enter the year
- All sets of one name (eg all HFTs) - enter the name
The selector controls the search type. You can choose from Answer (query string appears only in the answer), Question, or Question + Answer.
