And Schoolhouse Test is surprisingly easy to use and very intuitive. It incorporates three views or work areas depending on the current task. You use the design view to construct your test, 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, if you have opted to use an answer sheet that is.

"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 10 question types

With Schoolhouse Test you can design custom tests to evaluate learning in any subject area using ten different question types:

  • multiple-choice
  • fill-in-the-blanks
  • matching
  • short answer
  • list
  • list with prompts
  • order
  • true/false
  • long answer
  • diagram

Using a variety of question types in your tests will make the test 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

Save Money and Time

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 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 with 100 questions but only use selected questions at a given time, turning them on and off as the situation demands.

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 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., North Charleston, South Carolina, USA
