9 of the best online test and quiz generators

Written by Matthew Price // October 4, 2011

Online test and quiz makers can be a great way of saving some of your precious time and effort that could probably be better used elsewhere. They’re good for use as lesson starters or plenaries or even as whole class activities when you have some spare time. Whilst many make you pay to use them, we’ve found some free ones for you to have a look at (In no particular order).

multiple choice

 

Fling The Teacher is a customisable flash based game that’s free to download from ContentGenerator. Answer 15 questions correctly and you’ll be rewarded by flinging the teacher away on a catapult. This one is perfect for use on an interactive whiteboard in whole class situations.

Quizbox is a multiple choice quiz generator that’s easily embedded on websites or blogs. Results and statistics are displayed at the end. There’s no need to sign up so it’s very quick and easy to use.

Quizbreak - This one is a little different, based on the American game show Jeopardy, competitors read clues then type in the correct answer. Questions can have images, audio or video attached to make them more interesting. You’ll need to register but all the quizzes you make will be stored online to reuse.

My Quiz Creator – Another basic multiple choice quiz creator which just requires you to fill in the blank spaces to create your quiz. The final results as well as a percentage score are displayed at the end. Each quiz you make can either be embedded in a web page or linked online.

BGfL Quiz Maker – This is a really flexible website that could be used for both primary and secondary. Each test consists of standard multiple choice questions. But, the quiz activity can be extended by providing passages of text to compliment the questions. You can even provide a relevant web link to encourage users to research their answers. The application is available in several languages and all finished quizzes can be saved to your hard drive. One of the best and no need for you to sign up.

Classtools is another website we like for its versatility. There are loads of quiz formats that break away from the standard multiple choice. Our favourite is Wordshoot which challenges students (and maybe teachers) to shoot the correct answers on screen as quickly as possible.

Grey Olltwit – An alternative to the web based applications, the free Quiz Maker software can be used offline and shared across a network. It’s easy to set up the questions but the only downside is it’s very plain.

Hot Potatoes is another downloadable application with a set of 6 quiz styles including jumbled sentence, crossword and gap-filling. Questions can be accompanied by MP3 files to make them more entertaining. There’s also a nice feature if you use a virtual learning environment. After taking the test, final scores can be saved to a gradeboook in the VLE allowing teachers, students and parents to view results and analyse trends.

School Mocks allows you to create free multiple choice quizzes, including images, which can be tagged with the relevant subject, grade or level and key stage. Pupils can flag questions to review later as they complete the test, before submitting their answers. You can also use the searchable library of quizzes already created by School Mocks users.
