I propose we make a series of exercises to go along with the articles of the sequences. These exercises could help readers know how well they understood the material as well as help them internalize it better.

Now that this is happening, I suggest a post (maybe discussion, maybe main) noting that it is happening and with progress and commitments so far.

2Normal_Anomaly9yWould you be willing to beta read my exercise for "Words as Hidden Inferences"? If you say yes I'l email you a word document.
5RobinZ9yI propose we create posts in /discussion/ for each post in the sequence containing exercises for that post. I will create a Wiki page now where people can indicate that they have taken charge of creating exercises for any specific post. If I do not edit this comment with a link to said Wiki page within two days, downvote this comment to -10. Edit: Project page [http://wiki.lesswrong.com/wiki/Lesswrongwiki:Sequence_Post_Exercises]. If I do not take charge of creating exercises for at least one page within two days, downvote this comment to -5. Edit: Claimed "Making Beliefs Pay Rent (in Anticipated Experiences)". If I do not submit a page of exercises within two weeks, downvote this comment to -10.
