  • Quiz - the randomly generated questions with multiple choice answers. Quizzes are randomly generated from the Quiz Data Set and therefore different each time they are run.

Create

  • First tap the left hand 'Quiz' icon to get started.
  • Add quiz data sets locally on your device using the "+" sign in the top right. These are stored locally and private.
  • Name your quiz data set and then enter 20 question and answer pairs. These can also be word and definition pairs or fill-in-the-blank pairs. For best results you will need to fill in all twenty data sets. Note that these data sets are then used to generate a randomized quiz. Remember the answers should be unique. Since our quiz engine generates a multiple choice quiz using the answers, all answers need to be unique or your quiz will not function properly.
  • Delete quiz data sets using the "Edit" button or by swiping across the row from left to right.
  • Images (JPG, PNG, GIF) can be specified for each question and answer pair where appropriate through a public URL. Keep image sizes to a reasonable size (~200 to ~400 pixels) for optimal loading speed. Internet access will be required.

Quiz

  • Tap the green "Run Quiz" button on any of the quiz data sets.
  • The student can take a randomly generated quiz or an ordered quiz. An ordered quiz will test the 20 questions in order and repeat the process until the student decides to stop.
  • The quiz taker can stop at anytime by tapping the 'home' button or the 'tally button'.
  • Tap the silver tally button at the top to email the quiz results to a teacher or yourself for follow-up.
  • A white board has been added for the iPad release only at this time.
  • Due to the size of the iPhone and iPod Touch the multiple choice buttons are initially hidden providing room for the question and possible image. Show the four possible answers by tapping 'show'.
