Am looking for feedback from all teachers, (grades 9-12 especially!) for online quiz sites they have sucessfully used. I am hoping to find one that is free or low cost, that will score the quizzes and give immediate feedback to students, and will supply scores to teachers. (All that for little money if possible!) Also, one that will allow up to 100 students to take the quiz...Does anyone know of any that fit the bill? I have checked out many, but all have one limitation or another. What is the experience of forum users? Any feedback appreciated! Thanks,
we use test bank which is not on line. It only creates the test, you still need to grade. The grading program that I use, Engrade, does have a quiz maker function, and grades them & puts them into your gradebook, I have not really used this function much, as I just started using the program.
Hi! I just use a Google Form and then add the Flubaroo script.It automatically grades the quiz and will send the scores to the students if you input their email addresses. It also points out which questions most students scored lower than 60% so you can go back and relearn those concepts. It is a little confusing at first, but after the second or third time it is quick and easy to use. Tech integrators have no problem using it, but classroom teachers with little technology background may be frustrated with it. It all depends on how much they are willing to learn!
You can alos use the MCQ script on Google forms. This provides immediate feedback on students' answers directly to their e-mail.
We use My Big Campus. I really like it because it's more than a quiz maker. It's a collaborative learning platform. When quizzes/assignments are made, questions can be aligned to CCSS. There are many options for responses, including multiple select.
Quizstar is somewhat outdated but could work.
A UK site called YACAPACA has proven quite useful.
It costs about 300GBP for the whole school per year. You can get a free account but you are limited to the number of credits you get to spend. These are spent when you assign a quiz to a number of students; more students = more credits spent. You can accrue credits by other teachers assigning your tests; if you make good ones, they will get used more! You can assign other teachers quizzes too.
Mulitple question types including hot spots on diagrams.
Probably to best part is the response anaylsis; very thorough.
Students gain points for their performance in the quizzes which they can spend on new avatars and such. You don't get to see their points
Possible blocks to you using it:
The interface is tricky. It takes a while to figure out how to use the site and navigate around it but once you do, it is powerful.
Your quizzes are automatically open to the whole community and you can't stop this regardless of whether you paid the subscription. You will need to decide if this is acceptable.
Currently the quizzes run in Flash. I don't know if they are planning to alter this.
I have used Quia. http://www.quia.com/web
I love that it scores the tests and gives immediate feedback. I use the free version, but I think the paid version offers everything you are looking for. I believe it's $49 a year.
I use quizstar and students seem to like it. What is great about quizstar, unlike other online quizsites is that it allows you to upload images.........
It's also possible to use a combination of Google Forms and Conditional Formatting.
Make the quiz as a form and in the corresponding spreadsheet, use conditional formatting to highlight the cells certain colors based on answers that are submitted. This works well for multiple choice questions.
Not sure if this allows instant feedback to students though.
I'm not sure what you're going for exactly, but if it has anything to do with mastery of standards Masteryconnect.com has some awesome features. (Complete version is $159 for one teacher or $6 / student for a district.) I gave their free version a go last semester and I think it would be worth the cost.
Their assessment software is based on gradecam.com which is pretty cool itself, but the assessments are not online.
I use classmarker and it includes all those features for free. There are a few additional features if you upgrade- ($200. a year for teachers), but all the things you listed as necessary are available for free.
I hope you are doing well!!
Great to hear from you! It has been a challenging year, but I am thrilled to have completed my MET degree this May. Hope you are doing well, too! Thank you for your reply.
Thanks to all for your feedback; I have noted all your responses and will try out the ones I haven't yet tried. My goal for the summer is to get all my assessments online to be ready for fall. Thanks again for your help! ( I will continue to check this site for addtional responses as well!
