Fallacy Tutorial is the reincarnation of Michael C. LaBossiere's Fallacy Tutorial Pro originally written for the Macintosh in SuperCard. Unfortuntely, the SuperCard version it was created in wouldn't work with MacOS 8.5 and higher without an update to SuperCard so we took that opportunity to recreate it in REALbasic in 2000.
Using Fallacy Tutorial:
Hopefully it should be pretty straightforward. Study the Fallacies and take the quizzes until you score the full 20 of 20.
There are 3 quizzes of 10 scenarios for a total of 30 scenarios. For each quiz the order of the scenarios and the location of the multiple choices will change each time that that quiz is taken.
You may use the corresponding keys on your keyboard to select the multiple choices and press return to progress to the next scenario.
A correct answer earns 2 points. Hints are always available but will cost you half your potential score for that scenario if taken before answering the scenario question. So, you will only receive 1 point for a correct answer after a hint is taken.
