This paper describes a technique for using a spreadsheet program to create an interactive study aid. This drill type of computer-aided study should be particularly convenient for improving visual identification skills. Pictures and/or text are inserted into cells while an adjacent cell is left blank so students can enter an answer. Corresponding cells containing the correct answer and a random number are hidden off screen. The program can compare the student's answers to the correct answers and display the results. When cells are sorted by the column containing random numbers, the drill can be repeated with images or questions presented in a new order. An instructor can easily construct a customized tutorial of relevant material that can be made readily available to students.
