Creating and printing a paper-and-pencil test, quiz, or exam, has never been easier. Schoolhouse
Test makes a time-consuming chore a whole lot easier and the result considerably
more professional. Some of our customers have even hinted that creating tests with
Schoolhouse Test can actually be an enjoyable process. If you're looking for a professional
test generator that makes quick work out of creating paper-and-pencil tests, quizzes, and exams then Schoolhouse Test is the program for you.
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

"I must start by expressing my sincere appreciation for the fantastic program! I
have been using the Schoolhouse Test program for all my school tests since March
2010 and am very impressed! It has certainly made setting up the dreaded tests and
exam papers a breeze! I now look forward to setting up tests." - Colette A., Benoni,
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.
"Your products are fantastic; slowly but surely the peers in my building are buying
your programs. Yesterday we had a staff meeting and I shared your Test writing program
[Schoolhouse Test] with other teachers. Washington State's WASL, the state test,
is written exactly like your program. For years we have struggled to make templates
to fit the test. I shared your program, and there was even discussion of purchasing
a site license. Please keep working, love the new games on the vocabulary program."
- Karen C., Washington State, USA
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
Using a variety of question types in your tests and quizzes will make the evaluation more interesting
and challenging for your students. It can also make it easier to assess learning
for material that does not conform to just the multiple-choice question type.
"The program [Schoolhouse Test] makes very clean, professional looking tests. I
have taken mine and had them (both pre-course & post-course tests) laminated and
placed in a spiral-bound booklet for continued use. The addition of pictures and
different question formats add to the test and allow for different learning styles.
You have been quick to respond to all questions and 'Schoolhouse Test' is a very
easy to use program that allows for quick copy/paste fill-in and is in an easy-to-use
format. The results might possibly be duplicated by other programs, but the time
and effort would be considerably more." - John C., Phoenix, Arizona, USA
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.
Save time and money
One of the more popular features of Schoolhouse Test is the answer sheet. You can
automatically create an answer sheet for students to record their answers on and
save the actual quiz or test document for future use. Saves paper and photocopier costs.
The answer sheet also makes for easy marking. Simply place a student answer sheet
on top of the answer key on a lighted surface (such as an overhead projector) and
you can score an entire test in seconds.
One of the top time-saving features in the design view is the option to activate
and deactivate questions. You can, for example, design a master test or quiz with 100 questions
but only use selected questions at a given time, turning them on and off as the
Another time-saving feature in the design view is the randomize function. You can,
with a just a couple of mouse clicks, randomize all the selected questions in the
quiz or test so that they are in a different order. You can even randomize elements within
questions. So you can generate many different tests using the same question set.
This program [Schoolhouse Test] is FANTASTIC! I have already shown it to so many
other teachers. I am going to take it to my old school principal and get her to
purchase it for the school. I wish I had this program back when I was a classroom
teacher! It would have made my life so much easier. It is so user friendly, and
can be used for more than test & quizzes. I have used it to make review sheets and
other kinds of worksheets for my daughter. It is an amazing resource! - Tracy E.,
