In test exchange, why are captain's tryouts listed, but there aren't any tests linked to them?

Is there a website where I can find up-to-date distribution maps? A lot of maps I've found online have conflicted with each other.

Yeah, I think all distribution maps will conflict to some extent. Personally I like EDDMaps because it handles both literature and individual observations for its data (you can view this by going to a distribution map, viewing it by county, and selecting "Literature vs. Observation").

So I memorized all of the scientific names of all the things on the list last year right down to spelling.. and I'm wondering of graders would take off points for spelling the scientific names incorrectly? Anyone who made tests or know of someone who made an invasives or taxonomy test who would take points off for spelling scientific names incorrectly?

Hi friends, I wrote a simple Invasive Species ID Game here: https://invasives2.herokuapp.com. Some features are still in development (accepting common names as answers, etc), and let me know if you find any bugs (lol) ! If you find it useful and want to give a few cents or dollars there's a donation link in the instructions (I'm trying to get a new laptop).

It depends on the grader but for the most part they probably will take off points for incorrect spelling. With common names you might get by with a typo, but for scientific names one missing letter could lose you half a point.

The program always says I'm wrong even I when I type the correct answer. Other than the scoring system its pretty nice, thanks for making it.

I think only scientific names are accepted right now sorry :( I'll get around to adding support for common names soon! Thanks!
