Boy Scout Online Tests
One of the challenges of a leader with a large group of scouts is checking their advancement requirements. This can take quite a bit of time and effort. Sometimes, scouts will attempt to advance before they have adequately learned the skills or gained required knowledge. These online tests are intended to help scouts check their understanding of information before attempting their advancement.
A scout should take a test after he has studied the information and thinks he has the knowledge to pass the test. Taking a test to learn the information is not an effective use of the online test.
Some tests give the scout an opportunity to email his results to his adult leader. You can review how well the scout did and find out where he may need to devote more time.

Has the BSA investigated the idea of using DVD's to instruct the information required for merit badges? DVDs would use current technology in assisting scouts in their quest for merit badges. It also would assist those boys who learn better through audio/video means.
DVDs would standardize the required material, and, when coupled with required activites, would provide hands-on opportunities for personal development.
DVDs would also greatly assist troops which do not have unlimited resources for merit badge counselors.
These kids today sit in front of the screen too much as it is. They were born with a brain, an inquisitive nature, and two hands to use for more than a toggle lever. If you are new to scouting, buy a scout manual, read it, learn the knots well enough to teach a Tenderfoot the Square Knot, don't be ashamed if you goof once in a while, you don't have to be perfect, just present as often as you can.
