Abstract. An interactive stereochemistry tutorial has been made available on the World Wide Web for student use as a self-test. This tutorial is presented as The Stereochem Game, a game that maintains a running score and sells hints. Multiple versions of each question are available; one is randomly selected each time the tutorial is used. This allows use of the tutorial, as both a pre- and post-test exercise, to help students guide their study efforts and to evaluate their own progress.
