Simple But Effective Online Test Generator

I recently came across this very simple online test generator called Testmoz (http://testmoz.com/). It allows you to create online tests in four different formats: multiple choice, true/false, yes/no, and fill-in-the-blank. It also scores the tests and provides detailed test reports online that can be downloaded in a CSV file.

It does not require you or your students to create an account. You simply create a password for the test so you can access the results, adjust some settings such as the question type(s), enter your questions, answer options, and mark the correct answer choice. You can password protect the test so only your students can take it if you wish. Then you publish the test and get a specific URL for your test. Have students take the test and get your results.

There are two things you will need to remember: the password you created for the test and the test URL. Each test you create has a different URL. If you forget either piece of information, they cannot be retrieved from the system. I think we can all handle that!

The one thing that I really like about this online test generator is the students can take the tests on their iPods (or iPads)! We tested it and the questions were easy to read and you can zoom in so it is easier to select the answer choices. Oh yeah, you can take it on a computer also.

Here is the URL for a practice test I created: testmoz.com/12340. Go ahead take the test and see how it works.  I will pull the results and let you know how you did later!

Have fun!
