What are Quests?
Quests are the equivalent of a career. Each Quest highlights a real person in that job and gives you a real world perspective into what it’s like to have the job. As you experience each Quest, you will be watching some videos, learning some facts, and answering some short quizzes so that we can learn about you, your preferences, and your reactions to the information.
By clicking on Quests in the main navigation, you will be brought to a Quest Selector view of all available Quests. The Quest Selector shows pictures and job titles for you to select from. If you’ve already completed a Quest, you will see a small check mark in the lower right hand corner of that Quest. If you have started a Quest and it is in process, you will see a small gear in the lower right corner of that Quest.
What are Quest Crossings?
For each Quest, you will complete 5 Crossings. Each are designed to assess how you feel and think about what you are learning. You should complete the Crossings in the order that they are presented. You can go back and re-watch, redo or re-experience each of the Quest Crossings after you complete them. You will receive a fit assessment for each Quest once you’ve completed all 5 Crossings and the Quest wrap-up.
How long are the videos and how do I answer the questions at the end?
Each video Crossing is an average of 3 minutes. If you try to fast forward and jump to the questions at the end, you will receive an error message. It is required that you watch the video. Once you are done, you will click the Answer Questions button.
What is the Quest wrap-up?
Once you complete the 5 Crossings, you will be presented with screen that asks you how you feel and think about that given career. In addition to rating this career, the Quest wrap-up screen allows you to capture your comments. As you learn more from other resources, you can come back to change your rating or add additional comments. You can view these comments later on your Quest Summary screen. Once completed with the wrap-up, be sure to press the Finish button in order to earn all your points for that Quest.
How can I earn points?
You can earn points by completing Quests. During each Quest, there are a total of 24 questions. Each of those questions is worth one point. You also earn 5 points for completing the full Crossing. You can earn a total of 49 points per Quest.
What happens when I quit a quest?
If you quit a Quest, all of the points you’ve been tracking for that Quest will be completely erased and your responses to any questions will not be saved.
