Construct an online quiz

Quiz Press is a small software tool that makes quizzes and converts them to a combination of Flash and HTML for online use. It costs $50 and works on both Mac and Windows.

Users must have Flash 7 to work the tests. There’s a free demo. You can only make a 5 question quiz with the demo version, but I downloaded it and made a quiz. Take a run through my example quiz.

I tried one of every sort of question it will make: true or false, fill in the blank, cloze, multiple choice and short answer. You can have the results emailed to you, and you can require that students include their name (I didn’t put that in my example quiz.)

Drawbacks I saw were that the quiz requires Flash, and there is no management of results on the back end to help the teacher track things. You’d have to deal with individually emailed results. However, I think many people might find this a useful bit of software.
