Reuse and recycle your tests with automated randomization. With just a single click you can randomize the choice elements in any multi-choice type question (multiple-choice, checklist, matching, etc.). And with the Pro edition you can randomize the questions (all, selected, or groups) so that they are in a different order. Same set of questions - different test.

Answer sheets

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. In fact, place an answer sheet on top of the answer key on a lighted surface (such as an overhead projector) and score an entire test in seconds.

Fourteen question types

Using a variety of question types in your tests and quizzes will make the evaluation more interesting and challenging for your students. It will also make it easier to assess learning for material that does not conform to the standard multiple-choice question type.

Schoolhouse Test 5...makes life so much easier. I have only a few clicks to complete a test question, all is on one screen instead of little windows popping up on a different monitor (I use 3 monitor's because of other things I do as well.) It handles graphics like a pro, the printed tests look professional, AND I can use our company logo to make things a bit more personalized for the company. I'm just getting the hang of the entire system, but the learning curve isn't too steep and making modifications is easy....Thanks for putting out a great application that works. The best software purchase I've made in a long time!

Multiple choice

Design questions with up to 26 choices. Each choice can include a picture, can be deactivated when not required for a particular test, and can be locked against any randomization. Choices can be added or removed by simply pressing the plus or minus buttons. Randomizing the choices is simply a matter of pressing the randomize button. The question can be structured in up to six columns and ordered by column or row.


Type or paste in a block of text and then double-click any word to remove it, add it to the list of removed words, and number the blank. Or, if you want to remove a phrase or part of a word, just highlight it and press the Select button. What could be easier? Lots of options are available for customizing the numbering of the blanks including style (lowercase, uppercase, numeric) and decoration (parentheses, hyphens, brackets, or none).


Create flexible Table questions with answers set by column, row, or cells. Enter your table data and then click the check mark on each cell that you want to make an answer. Or use the column/row editor to make all the cells answers in an entire row or column. Column and row dimensions can be set in the column/row editor, by dragging column and row lines with your mouse, or by using the handy auto-size functions.


Deploy a question that requires the selection of a correct set of items from a list of correct and incorrect items. Enter your list of items and simply check the correct items. As with all list type questions, items can be added or removed by pressing the plus or minus buttons. The list can be randomized and a picture can be added.


When you want students to provide a list of names, places, events, or other data, the List is your go to question type. Lists in Schoolhouse Test can have up to 26 items, accompanied by a picture, organized in up to six columns, and ordered by row or by column.

List with prompts

The List With Prompts question type takes the list type question to the next level. The addition of prompts makes for a very flexible assessment element for any test. Select to display the prompts before or after the answers. Options also include layout in up to four columns, and ordering by column or by row.


With this question type you can provide students with a list of items to put in the correct order. Simply enter up to 26 items in the correct order and then press the Randomize button which automatically scrambles the list. For the test, students enter the order number beside each item. Additionally, a picture can be added for each item.


Provide two lists of items to be matched up. Enter up to 26 matching pairs and then click the randomize button to scramble the list. Students match each item in the numbered list on the left with the letter of the correct matching item on the right. A picture can be assigned to each item.


Indicate which statements in a list of statements are true and which are false. Sort of like a super true/false question. The statements can be randomized and a picture added. Adding additional items (up to 26) is just a matter of pressing the plus button. And pressing the minus button removes them. Items can be laid out in up to four columns and organized by column or by row.

Short answer

Add questions that require written answers of a few words to a paragraph or two. A picture can be attached for both the question and the answer. Extra answer lines can be provided and the spacing between the lines can be adjusted.

Long answer (essay)

When longer answers are required. A picture can be attached for both the question and the answer. Extra answer lines can be provided and the spacing between the lines can be adjusted. The answer lines can also be removed if alternate writing materials are supplied.

True false

Options are available to change the true/false text, the appearance of the buttons, and the layout of the buttons: horizontal or vertical.


Use the Diagram question when you need to have students label, complete, or draw a diagram. Add the diagram image and the diagram key and optionally add a border if no image will be supplied.


New for version 5 the multi-part question steps in when a single overall question or topic with multiple parts is the best fit for your test requirements. Marks can even be assigned for each individual part. Additional parts can be added (up to 26) by simply pressing the plus button. Pressing the minus button removes them. And, as with the short and long answer questions, extra answer lines can be added to make additional writing space for the answers.

The program 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.

New in version 5

New in this major version release is high resolution display, multi-part questions, expanded references, an enhanced print manager, grouping, a solution view, right-to-left layout, and a whole lot more.

4K ready

Thinking about getting a 4K monitor? Or maybe a high resolution laptop? Schoolhouse Test 5 has you covered. It now scales correctly up to 400%. No more jagged, blurry text, lines, and images. The higher the resolution the better it looks.


The new multi-part question steps in when a single overall question or topic with multiple parts is the best fit for your test requirements. Marks can even be assigned for each individual part.


Schoolhouse Test 5 now has eight reference fields plus the status selector and the notes text box all on a convenient sliding panel. And each reference field has a reference editor that provides easy editing and organization of all your references.

Print manager

The new Print Manager provides easy, all-in-one-place, printing. Now you can set up all parts of your print job, test document and key, answer sheet and key, and solution from one place and then send it to the printer with a single click. You can even randomize elements of your test between print jobs.

Text editor

The text editor is particularly useful when you need to add a large amount of text. Rather than scrolling up and down to work with your text, simply pop open the text editor, edit your text, and close it.

Open file

New open file functionality provides a detailed view of your recent test documents as well as all your test documents in a specific folder. View creation and modified times, file size, and document information. Document information is a new feature in Design View that gives you the option to add some custom information about your saved test.


You have always been able to simply double-click a word to replace it with a line. Now you can hold down the control key and double-click a line to return the word. Or use the undo/redo buttons to easily undo or redo your last changes. Also added is a word bank providing an optional randomized list of words that have been removed.


The new grouping capability allows for easy organization and management of your test document. Simply add a beginning group element before a set of questions and other elements that you want to control as a cohesive group and add an ending group element at the end of that grouping. Randmization can also be applied to a group.

Solution view

Solution View is an enhanced test answer key that was developed for instructors who would like to include hidden text and notes as follow-up reference information either for themselves or for their students. Without hidden text or notes the Solution View is exactly the same as the document answer key.

Hidden text

Now it's a whole lot easier and faster to add hidden text to your questions. Simply right-click to open the context menu and select Add Hidden Text or use the key combination Ctrl+H. The hidden text editor adds the required curly braces and you can just enter your text and click OK. Hidden text is now only shown in the new Solution View.


The table question in Schoolhouse Test 5 has received some major enhancements. Answer cells can now be assigned to any table cell regardless of where it is in the table. Also added is mouse enabled resizing. Just click and drag any row or column with your mouse to make adjustments to its size and position.


Schoolhouse Test 5 now comes with report capability. Report provides a way for you to select the question data you want to preserve (question number, question text, references, and notes) and then export it to Excel, HTML, CSV, and text as well as save it to file. The best option for printing your report is to export to HTML and print from your favorite web browser.

I am enjoying using the Schoolhouse Test program. I did have a glitch, but I think it is a memory glitch as I don't remember if I updated both the program on my home computer and my office computer at school. I have recommended and will continue to recommend the Schoolhouse Test program. It is the best of the test generating programs and it allows me to be independent of textbook ancillary test programs. Thank you for contacting me to see how things are going and for the hard work your company puts into its product.
