Frankly, I really like Articulate QuizMaker, the second is Wondershare QuizCreator. Adobe Captivate is definitely a good screen recorder, if you don't want the screen capture function, there is no need to choose this tool. However, for the point of price, I will choose QuizCreator, what is your choice? Take a look at these test makers and try these. Choose the right test maker for you.

  6. A comprehensive list. Well categorized in terms of price and features. However, one of the major concerns before creating a quiz,
    for teachers and instructors, is finding the right quiz questions. ProProfs Quiz Maker solves this challenge by providing users access to a library of over 3 million free quiz templates.

  7. My only problem with these programs is the fact that they don't have a 'cloze' question option. I teach English in South Korea and dictation is a very useful tool. Although it isn't the prettiest program, you should include 'Hot Potatoes 6' on your list. It is 100% free and works great.

  13. Well guys let me tell you something. As simple as my next quiz wants to be it is impossible to make it with todays advanced quiz making software!

    Make this:

    Question:

    Which roads are meeting in intersection X ?

    Answers:

    1. A
    2. B
    3. C
    4. D
    5. E
    6. F

    --------------------------------------------------------
    Now ... the kid should write in one line ... or more the answers ...
    But it cant!
    Because only 1 answer is correct if it is to go the possibilities of the quizzes today.
    And only in a certain order if i write all roads in one line.
    So ... to cover all possible answer i should write 720 combinations of 6 roads meeting in that effing intersection.
    Not to take into consideration partial answers ... like ABDC ... only 4 out of 6.
    Because whatever the kids are writing ... Road A or AB or ACB or any ** is correct.
    So ... If they answer in any order i have to make 720 combinations
    + if they only pick 5 out of 6 in any order another 720
    + if they only pick 4 out of 6 randomly 360
    +3 out of 6 random 120
    +2 out of 6 random 30
    +1 out of 6 random 6
    ---------------------------grand total

    1856 permutations ... for a stupid question.

    Is there any software that takes into consideration what im asking here ?
    Or this is for the future generations to be solved ,,,, ?
