Onboarding is this genuine?

It would be good if it did more of a gap analysis e.g. based on your response recommend you check out these specific lessons/grades/courses.

You’re right Toby

The whole thing is ill thought out. Quiz? That’s something where you may or may not know the answer. These are simply poorly formatted questions with no bearing/reference on/to the modules/grades etc that the user has completed.

I’m sure I read one of your posts a while ago saying that you were going to get stuck into the lessons again? If so, now’s a good time to get onboard :smiley:

True Gordon but I guess if you are just starting out you don’t know what you don’t know.
And little about modules or grades or if they even exist. Maybe @FannyJustinGuitar called it right this time.

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. I obviously know too much so Orwell directed me back to the start of G3 !

I can’t take the quiz on my tablet, because the menu from the bottom of the page completely covers the answer choices, and I can’t get it to go away. I’ll try later on my regular computer, but this isn’t helpful.

Thanks. I use Android (tablet and phone) but that worked.

Hi Fanny, I just had a go at the onboarding survey. Unfortunately it doesn’t work well on my mobile device, I can’t see the orange button at the end of each question. The bottom part of the webpage seems to overlay the onboard questions making it impossible to move on.
A good idea for newbie’s maybe.

I can not take the quiz. Most of it I can’t see. Having the same problem as markr31. I am on an android phone and no matter what I do. Can’t see all the boxes in the fields. I’m not too worried about it though, I know my route and where I’m going and what grade I am at.

Rock on!

Pull down the browser menu. Choose “desktop site.” That fixes the problem.

:+1::+1::+1::+1::+1:(had to be 5 characters or the site wouldn’t accept it.):smiley:

When opening the Onboarding quiz on an iPhone 11 the questions are partially hidden by the website’s footer making it impossible to do the quiz.

One to merge with the main onboarding thread.

It says I’m Grade 2 :sweat_smile: Happy with my response, I perceive my foundations are not strong enough and…I’m not interested in power chords at the moment or the picking techniques (plectrum), but there are important lessons that I have skipped and I need to find sometime for them. In the e-mail it also says not to hesitate to explore the exta wealth of resources on the website so it’s a double :sweat_smile:

Aha!!! Thank you!
After that I could take the quiz. And yepp, it seems to be accurate enough. I’m in grade 3 material and it says grade 3. Just like I knew!! :grin:

I like this desktop view better!!! Oh yeah, gonna keep this setting. Learn something new every day!

Rock on!

I am currently in Grade 2. Started in April with JG course. After finishing the onboarding questions a got an email saying I can start with Grade 4. It’ a little too fast. I think it’s better to finish 2 and 3 before starting with Grade 4, or can one skip a grade to start with another, advenced, Grade?

I’ve been playing for nearly eight years. I know I’m not nearly as good as I should be after this long, but the onboarding quiz told me I was grade 3. I can’t imagine it’s a good idea for you to jump to grade 4 after a month. I’m pretty skeptical about how accurate it is.

I guess it all depends on how accurate the responses provided are as there’s a difference between knowing something and applying it consistently :ok_hand:

Hi @eduard09, I suspect the onboarding quiz is simply a decision tree based on responses to questions. When I took the quiz, there were questions I wasn’t sure how to answer - what to say about skills I’ve been exposed to and have practiced, but don’t feel I’ve mastered? Anyway, I’m no expert (currently hovering between grades 2 and 3), but I do agree with your logic of finishing Grades 2 and 3 before moving on to Grade 4. If much of the content is review - great! It won’t take you long to progress. (Which you would already have experienced, of course…it’s taken you less than 2 months to get to Grade 2 :wink:) And based on past comments from others here, there are always little tips to pick up even with skills you already know.

I don’t know if it is accurate but I will continue with Grade 2 and 3 before starting Grade 4. I must say that I played guitar 60 years ago and still play the piano, practice between 30 and 45 minutes every day so playing the guitar is not something totaly new for me.
