Best Ocean Acronym Test Welcome to the Best Ocean Acronym Test January 25, 2021 Within oceans research, we use a lot of acronyms. Acronyms can be very useful but at the same time they can be frustrating. We like to have some fun, so here is a fun way to increase your acronym knowledge, train your team or learn something new. (Yes... we do know you can google these but whats the fun in that?) The acronym could be anything from a business/companies name, research projects and events or more! There will be 50 questions pulled from a large bank of acronyms in a randomized order. Each question will be graded out of 2, if you select the correct answer you will gain full points. If you select an answer that is close to the correct answer, you will gain partial points. High scores will be posted publicly on our twitter account and will be updated as the leaderboard changes! If you provide us with your twitter name, we will make sure we tag you so you can keep up with the competition! If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us via twitter or at Communications@PiscesRPM.com Good luck and Have fun! 1.
