Version 4 of the popular Schoolhouse Test comes with an updated fresh new look, three new question types (checklist, statements, and table), import and export services for Moodle, Blackboard, and Respondus, more organization fields, a new question bank feature that turns any test or quiz into a question bank from which you can draw questions for new tests, and many new features and options. See what's new in this major upgrade for Schoolhouse Test.
You need a quick quiz for your science class. Schoolhouse Test can get the job done in minutes. Not only will you have a quiz ready for your next class but you'll have a quiz that can be easily randomized and given again in a week's time as a follow-up quiz. Or, using the built-in Question Bank (Pro editions), you can easily combine the questions from this quiz with questions from other quizzes for an end-of-unit test or an end-of-term exam.
It's the end of your geography unit and you need to evaluate your students' learning with a nice test that includes some multiple-choice questions, a few short answer questions, maybe a matching question, and finally an essay question. Schoolhouse Test comes to the rescue again. You can design your test from scratch which is not as bad as it sounds if you're using Schoolhouse Test. In fact you'll be surprised at just how easy it is. Or, if you have been using quizzes to periodically check that your learning objectives are being met, you can simply use the Question Bank (Pro editions) to select and combine questions from the existing quizzes to make your test. Likewise, if you need an end-of-term or end-of-year exam, you can use the questions in your existing tests and quizzes to design your exam.
Now it's exam time and you need an exam to administer. Well, once again, Schoolhouse Test reduces even that monumental undertaking to a manageable task. Even if you're writing your exam questions for the first time it will go a lot faster than you expect it to. Even tricky-to-write question types like matching, order, and tables are surprisingly easy to produce. And if you have quizzes and tests that you have been using throughout the year to assess learning, you can use the Question Bank (Pro editions) to construct your exam from your existing questions.
Assess learning with 13 question types
With Schoolhouse Test you can design custom tests and quizzes to evaluate learning in any subject area using thirteen different question types:
- short answer
- list with prompts
Create your first quiz or test in minutes
And Schoolhouse Test is a surprisingly easy to use and very intuitive test maker. It incorporates three views or work areas depending on the current task. You use the design view to construct your test or quiz, the document view to format the test and see exactly what it will look like when printed, and the answer sheet view to format the answer sheet and see what it will look like when printed.
