I usually don't write much for reviews, but this has got be the exception. I started writing some
of the tests I'll be using for my newest crop of apprentices. Because I'm a pretty demanding instructor,
the apprentices look for every little thing they can that is less than perfect. I was routinely harassed
about the quality of the tests I was printing through the Pearson Test-Gen software, in a word they were
pretty pedestrian. Generally just terrible in print. The old software was terrible in the way it handled
graphics, too many or too large and it would crash the internal database and then the application would
not recognize the test. In essence it would be gone. The worst part was how cumbersome it is to use,
and you could not bank the questions I wrote so if I wanted to reuse them in another test, quiz or
section final, they had to be written all over again. Just a pain.
Schoolhouse Test 5 on the other hand 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. I really like the options for the different
question types, I had only four with Test-Gen, which is giving me ideas for additional ways to measure
how well I'm doing in getting the information across that I have to teach. I do have a bit to learn
about some of the terminology you use but if that's the worst of it, I'm doing fine. Thanks for
putting out a great application that works. The best software purchase I've made in a long time!
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.
I have only used your program [Schoolhouse Test] a few times, but I really think it is
much better than any I have used or looked at. I am still learning all the ropes,
but I feel very confident with the program and think it is great. I have been telling
all my colleagues about it. Thanks for a great product that does what it says.
This program 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!
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.
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.
I do appreciate your products...and I love the [Schoolhouse Test]! I was able to create a 30 question
Social Studies test in 15 minutes first time. Thank you for such a great product!
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.
