Research: Citation Diagnostics and Exercises MLA
The two, 20-question MLA diagnostics available here are interchangeable; both test the same skills and competencies. You may choose to take either one as an initial evaluation of your proficiency, or you may choose to take one as an initial evaluation and the second after you have completed the practice sets in areas of identified weakness.
The results page generated by these diagnostics will provide two kinds of information: (1) general proficiency levels in 3 categories (Books, Periodicals, Electronic Sources); and (2) individual question-by-question feedback.
Based on the results of your diagnostic, you will be able to link to further practice, or topic explanations in Research Navigator.
Use these practice sets after you have taken the diagnostic or as independent study resources.
