Use this game to learn and improve your dial caliper reading skills.
The Game can be played either with an imperial scale or a metric scale. Numbers on the top of the scale are for centimeters and at the bottom for inches.
This game can be played using a mouse or a touch-screen.

A measurement to select will appear above the dial caliper.
With your mouse or finger, click/tap and hold the dial and move it left or right until you have reached the correct spot.
If you are not able to hit exactly the right spot, you can use the minus and plus icons below the dial caliper to control the dial caliper and move it up or down by 0.001 inches or 0,001 cm with each click.
When you think you have the right answer, click/tap the "Submit Answer" button below the dial caliper.
For each correct answer, you will be awarded points. Your score is displayed on the left side of the Results Bar that appears below the dial caliper.
Points are awarded based on the following table.
Each time you correctly guess 5 measurements, you will advance to the next level. Your current level is indicated in the Results Bar below the dial caliper.
The timer is represented to the right of the score in the Results Bar. As time passes, the bar will get shorter.
If you have not submitted a measurement when the time runs out, you will receive a strike.
For each incorrect answer, you will receive a strike. After three strikes, your game is over. The number of strikes you have received is indicated on the right side of the Results Bar below the dial caliper.
