We have developed a computer program for spelling training.
In this program, a student takes spelling tests from a word list.
The words to be spelled are on a list, and each one is taken from the list when the student is asked to spell it
Tests can be either big or small from single questions to hours long, which are then called examinations or exams. Short tests may be called quizzes and usually only take a few minutes. Teachers use them to ingrain lesson materials into students. If a quiz is given unannounced, it may be called a pop quiz. Exam and quiz describe the relative lengths of a test.
The essence of being tested is to respond with the correct answer when asked a question.
Each of the questions is a test of knowledge, and the overall collection is also called a test if it functionally can be thought of as a single entity, usually on one topic of interest. Exams are usually a collection of tests on several different topic and the process may last all day. One sits an exam, but not a quiz.
Other words which might be used to express the same process are
