Where can I find the Capstone Quiz?

The Capstone quiz can be found in the “My Quizzes” section of the Player’s Corner. Since it is a post-test it is only available once the player has completed all five Category Quizzes.

If the Capstone Quiz does not appear in the “My Quizzes” area once the Category Quizzes are complete, the player should refresh the page; if it does not appear after 20 minutes, the player should log out and log back in.

If the Capstone Quiz still does not appear, contact support for assistance.

What is the Capstone Quiz?

The Capstone quiz is the online post-test. Players must complete the Capstone quiz before online competition closes in order to be eligible for in-person competitions.

The Capstone quiz consists of 20 multiple-choice questions randomly selected from the five categories. The scores from the five Category quizzes and the Capstone quiz are combined to determine a player’s final score.

How do players register?

Everyone registers using the same “register” button in the top right-hand corner of the site. Register once, and in all subsequent visits choose the login button instead. Usernames and passwords carry over from year to year.

Register as a student, creating your own username and password which you will use to login on future visits, provide contact and demographics information, complete a “captcha” and click, “Register with LifeSmarts.”

Use the login button to get to the Players page.

Where are the official quizzes located that affect our team and individual scores?

Varsity and JV players will find the quizzes under the Competitions tab of the Player’s Corner once they login. Players first complete the pre-quiz which unlocks the five category quizzes. Once the five category quizzes are completed the Capstone quiz becomes available. Players must complete all seven quizzes to be eligible to compete at the next level (the category and Capstone quizzes make up the player’s final score). Coaches do not see competition quizzes, but they can track student scores.
