Multiple question formats for increased challenge and interest

Schoolhouse Test includes 14 question formats for complete test flexibility. Use a variety of question types in your tests and quizzes to make the evaluation more interesting and challenging for your students while also making it easier to assess learning for material that does not conform to the standard multiple-choice question type.

Multiple Choice

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.

Fill-in-the-Blanks

Fill-in-the-blanks

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).

Table

Table

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.

Checklist

Checklist

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.

List

List

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

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.

Order

Order

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.

Matching

Matching

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.

Statements

Statements

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

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)

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

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.

Diagram

Diagram

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.

Multi-Part

Multi-part

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.
