I updated this quiz today. Replaced some very difficult questions on old technology.

Warning to anyone using this in the classroom – “Goddamm Acronyms” as a category heading is not appropriate for the classroom!

Thanks Mrskwiz. This quiz is not intended for use in a school classroom and the content does not really cover what students might learn in an IT class. It’s aimed at adults in the computer industry to use as a fun activity at a conference or staff meeting.

If you want to use it in the classroom, it’s a very simple matter to change the category title before use. That’s recommended for every quiz downloaded here. Some questions may not be appropriate for whatever reason and they should all be checked by the teacher before use (for a start, the teacher needs to know all the answers to be able to adjudicate! 🙂
