I?m impressed, I need to say. Actually rarely do I encounter a weblog that?s both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you will have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is excellent; the difficulty is one thing that not sufficient individuals are talking intelligently about. I am very pleased that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

Another suggestion- if you ever add the ability to put tests online, please make it so that very young children can NOT be allowed to go online, by using a setting in the toolbar for parents & teachers. And making it so that no real names EVER show to others online! That is VERY IMPORTANT!

@ tabinator #29- you can add as many answers as you want, maybe you have to select that in settings. I had chosen "multiple choice" & it allows more than 2 by adding an answer in big box marked "Add answer". To mark the correct answer, check the box beside it.

Installed & runs fine. Does what it says. No more, no less. Help file is actually a web page describing the product, NOT A HELP FILE AT ALL. The page you get does not help you with how to use it at all, no how-to at all. After putting in answers, when taking test, you must click "Accept", which should be changed to say "Enter my answer" so it isn't at all confusing for very young kids, like 1st graders.
-Check the box by the TRUE answer only. That I had to figure out. "Add answer" only adds another answer choice, NOT the true answer.
- When finished entering questions & answers &the settings, click the green arrow in the toolbar, to save the test.
The rest was easy & very simple. I tried it out with settings & various ways of questions & answers just to see how it worked. Works great!
I think the suggestions from others above are vary valid, & several changes could be made that would make a better program. It is a nice program as is, if the suggestions were not added, and is great for kids to make their own tests for themselves also, to help them learn things they need practice with, & it works very well for that! An adult may have to help the 1st couple times, if child is very young. Most flash card programs are very clunky, hard to do affairs, but this is easy, mostly easy anyway. It would be nice if it could also print out a quiz, and do some of the other things that other quiz programs you can get online do.
There are many free quiz maker programs online, some of which can do lots more than this one, but I haven't tried any of them.
*Free Alternatives- Just Google "Free Quiz Maker". You'll get a lot.
*Price- well, if you can get better software free..then stands to reason this should have some more work done on it, to make it better than free software available, or noone is going to buy it, or at least few people will buy it, as it is. Sorry, but that's just the truth. People use search engines to find the best software now, not like it was in 1995 or so, when they just bought something before seeking alternatives & checking out what they all can do before buying.

Another suggestion on making the program more useful for students and educators is by incorporating 'objectives' throughout the program. So if I were studying Excel as an example, I could have 300 questions but split the questions into categories: 'identifying the differences between Excel 2007 and Excel 2003, and 'learning how to format cells' as examples. I could have as many or as few questions in the objective as desired. I could split off objective or objectives into new tests as desired (or import other quizes in).

During the quiz construction process, the program could help determine how many questions I have in any given objective (so I could come up with more questions in that objective if there are too few). And help me move questions from one category to another so I don't get lost making the quiz.

Before the quiz I could manually select which objectives I am interested in learning today. So I could select 'review' (my past objectives tilted towards the ones I got wrong), and 2 or 3 new objectives.

Then it would be nice/professional looking to have an option to show the objectives at the beginning of the quiz. At the end of the quiz, maybe the percentage of how many questions I got correct in a given objective so I could study that objective again or more frequently. Maybe during the test even an option of steering the tester towards the kinds of questions that he or she is missing as an option.

There doesn't seem to be many bells and whistles on this program but it is a nice program for free and I'll be keeping it.

Things I'd like to see in the future: thumbdrive version, printout of paper quizes option, an enhanced clipboard, an increase frequency option for questions you have gotten wrong in the past (so if you have 500 questions and you select ask 20 random you get quizzed on the ones you got wrong). There should be a caps lock ignore option and/or a multiple correct answer recognition option so that t/T/True/true all come out as correct. At the end report, the incorrect answers should show up as red or something so that you can easily scan down for the ones you got wrong (you should maybe be able to filter for them too or they should be at the bottom as I found it hard to find the incorrect answers amid all the correct ones. There should be an option to enable so that if you get a question wrong-- the correct answer is flashed before going on to the next question (incorrect--the correct answer is . . . kind of thing). There should be an administrator mode or something so that you can take the quiz and then edit 'in quiz' rather than search through 500 questions in order to correct an error that you discovered on the quiz.

Don't mean to be too picky but the program retails for $25--yipes. The best market seems to me to be poor college students but $25 is expensive and I don't see that the program geared too well for a study/learning tool at present. If the price were slashed in half or better still hit the $9.99 pricepoint and the above improvements were made then I'd probably buy it. Conversely for free its appreciated as is. Thanks GOTD and NetCrate software!

Installed and runs with no noted problems on Win 7 64 bit. Tried a quicky test quiz and found it only allows for 2 answer boxes, even though the web site says you can include 50 answers per question. Am i missing something here?

Can not make quiz with formulas without having Microsoft Office installed. This should be mentioned as a requirement.

If you can't print the quizz, then it is useless. I need a quizz that you can print.

Not bad for quick quizzes. It would be nice to have the option to turn off the "Powered by Easy quizzy" in the quiz & "--Easy Quizzy" in the titles. I appreciate that they want exposure though.

Downloaded and installed just fine. No problems with setting up and running a practice quiz. I would however agree with #12... A nice feature would be if there was a way to secure it so that it can only be taken one time by a specific user, so if you could enter a list of those that were going to be taking the test, this might be the step needed to ensure that the test is only taken once.

Thanks GAOTD!

Follow #4 GOTD instraction, and I believe it activated ok in Vista 32 OS.

From its View command interface, four languages, English, Russian, Ukrainian, and Latvian can be selected. I'm not sure how powerful this feature is. To create new translation:

Very poor description. Does not say that you have to have Microsoft Office installed to be able to insert equations, yet one of the screenshots shows an equation. Very misleading. Bad bad bad.

I'm UNINSTALLING this. It's not up to snuff with current technology anyway. Quite amateurish in appearance and functionality too.

Brief Review:

Downloaded, installed, activated fine on Vista x32 OS. Activation will succeed if you first activate the program right after installation, before you access/open the program. This always works for me, and hopefully it will work for you also. Program has a very simple interface that includes 3 tabs: Quiz Info. (with quiz name, quiz author name, quiz description), Questions and Answers (to generate custom questions), Quiz Settings (with a variety of setting options). Program also provides 4 GUI language options: English, Russian, Ukranian, Latvian. The developer also offers users a chance to translate the program into other languages in exchange for a free license for the program.

Question for the Developer - the EULA says: "Activation codes will never expire. The initial purchase price includes all updates for a lifetime period. There will be no charges for version upgrades or anything else related to the program." So, even though GOTD giveaway programs normally don't include future upgrades, will there be an exception in this case, given the developer's software program EULA? It would be good if the developer would address this point.

So, it's my understanding that the tests can't be printed? I tried exporting it to .tst format, but I couldn't find a reader for that, and I tried exporting to XML, but Word 2007 wouldn't open it because there was an error in it.

When there is no alternative applications of this kind, why people give -ve marking for no reason... even if someone says "Thanks" gets -ve... r u syco, to give this kind of marking... don't give... just ignore... if u have some feedback, give it else, just don't mark anything...

Install went great but I wish that you could print the quiz for a paper test. It Doesn't seem to be able to print your quiz. however it does create an .exe of your quiz to run on any computer so that's a plus.

The directions for installing here were very clear and helpful in activating the product. Thanks GOTD for preventing the kinds of headaches with these programs I've seen before. The program itself is very simple and easy to understand. One thing you must remember is that your correct questions on the tests you create must be the ones that have the box checked off. This actions presents a blue box filling the area in which you place the answer. That took a bit of intuition on my part. Aside from that the program works as promised and produced a readable and easy to use test. I'm using Vista Home Premium 64 bit so I can tell you it works for this exotic OS.

Using standalone executables as quizzes seems old fashioned and obsolete.

It would have been more useful to me if it also generated web based quizzes (with an admin/overview/statistics area).

Seems buggy (from my initial test). When creating a Single Choice question, when I try to enter the answer it just creates another choice (even though the question type remains single choice. Appears to be no online help. The software provide a report of the students grade, but this saves to an RTF file so can be easily edited to show a false result.

This is alpha software, very limited applicability to the real world.

The software installed easily under Windows XP. A sample quiz was easy to develop and compile. Running the quiz was simple and presented correctly plus it gave a useful report on completion. This is a useful tool.

I had Sysinternals' 'File Monitor' running during activation and discovered something rather disturbing.

It may be necessary to access files for the activation process, and I haven't checked what the functions are of all the DLLs and other files it accessed, but I'm absolutely certain it has NO business accessing several directories and files of my e-mail program (I use Eudora).

Please explain why it is doing that.

This could be a lot more useful if you could enter a list of names in the software of people who will answer the questions and could generate individual .exe files with their names encoded in it and in the file name. Then after answering the questions the the software should be able to create an encrypted file with their name and answers that can be sent back and which the program should be able to (batch)import showing the individual results and some statistics of the group, allowing for export of this data again.

Too bad these functions aren't there (yet). In its current form it's rather limited.

addition: Easyquizzy may even run for the first time - beeing opened with the dialogue (do you want to continue the trial), when you start to run the activate.exe (beeing copied into the program folder of easyquizzy). So I did answer the dialogue (to continue the trial) after I got the usual notification by gaotd, closed easyquizzy and rerun easyquizzy - voila: licensed.

a hint how to install it from the German friends: copy Activate.exe into the Install directory and run activate.exe then.

Installed fine on Win 7, 64-bit. Must extract the zip and hen run setup.exe first. Then Exit the program. Now run activate.exe (as admin) and it registers properly. Looks good, although the vendor website is very plain vanilla ;)

Had the same problem as user #1: Grahame Dyet which is very unusual.
However the solution of exiting the app, then doing the activation again worked, so thanks for that GAODT. The app is nice, simple, which is what I like, but it doesn't seem to be able to print from the finished quiz, unless I am missing something?

Easy and very simple Installation and layout to understand. A very handy tool to design quizes if you are an instructor.

I want to know if their is anyway you can control the user name input as it's accepting Alpha numeric keys and also whether the design quizes can be run simultaneously on network for many users and assess them.

Thanks GOTD.

Hello everybody!

Some suggestions for users who still get unregistered version after running Activate.exe:

- make sure you exit easyQuizzy before activation
- if you are OS Vista user you may probably need to install and activate the program in the name of administrator.

If nothing of this helps please try to uninstall the program and change the sequence: run Activate.exe first and then Setup.exe.

Best regards,
