QuizCreator & Quiz Maker Should Be Included in the List of Top Multiple Choice Test Makers
E-Learning expert Tony Karrer, with his blog eLearning Technology, have recommended a list of software/tools for users to make online tests/quizzes in this post Flash Quiz Tools: eLearning Technology. However, it’s the year 2007 when he made that post public. Though I was astonished that QuizCreator and Proprofs Quiz Maker were not included in that list, it’s pretty reasonable as QuizCreator and Quiz Maker did not gain enough publicity then, or Tony probably hadn’t get the access to it. Now, over three years has passed since 2007, and quite a few emerging test maker software/tools have shown up. And, QuizCreator is one of them. As a result, I think it may be the very time to refresh his list of software for test making, especially in the situation of more and more educators, researchers and evaluators need some other handy test making software with multiple choice type question aside from these relatively big shots, in eLearning industry. Here is my list of the top 2 recommended test maker tools, more specifically, the multiple choice test maker software/ tools, whether free or paid.
It’s an easy and time-saving authoring tool to make a Flash-based test or quiz. Whether you are a teacher or training specialist, this program offers a motivating platform, with Free trial version available. Also, QuizCreator is a powerful test maker to create multimedia quizzes as well as effortlessly tracking and reporting test results with its management system online. That means, QuizCreator allows users to track their results with their standards based Learning Management System as its output is SCORM and AICC compliant.
The latest QuizCreator V4.0 comes with survey creation features. So just enjoy the simplicity of both quiz and survey creation.
Proprofs Quiz Maker
It’s an online test maker tool that users can use to make an online quiz for work, school or fun. Furthermore, ProProfs works best for people who don’t like to install software and it’s totally free. The limit is that it only has 3 question types, namely, multiple choice, fill in the blanks and essay type. However, you can also integrate the quizzes with images. And the quiz can be published on your Web and blog. All you need to do is to click the Share & Embed button and then to copy and paste the HTML code to add it to your blog or website. ProProfs provide the services to analyze the results for users as well. My suggestion is that ProProfs is more for fun. For teachers and training specialists, QuizCreator should be your option to make an online test.
Moreover, here is an article of how to make multiple choice tests with one of these test makers.
