This is a great quiz for helping students understand the details of the play (I only took the quiz for Oedipus Tyrannos). If they get a question wrong, they can go back and try it again, and it encourages them to look at the play again to see why they may have misunderstood something. It also can help students see how to link together certain details of the plot and see why knowing those details makes a difference in the overall understanding of the plot as well. I had students complete this quiz after their reading before they came to class so they could make sure they understood the play.
