Re: [K12OSN] Exam Generator Programs

Check out Hot Potatoes if you have an interest in webbased quizzing and teaching tools.

This is from their website at: http://web.uvic.ca/hrd/halfbaked/index.htm

The Hot Potatoes suite includes six applications, enabling you to create interactive multiple-choice, short-answer, jumbled-sentence, crossword, matching/ordering and gap-fill exercises for the World Wide Web. Hot Potatoes is not freeware, but it is free of charge for those working for publicly-funded non-profit-making educational institutions, who make their pages available on the web. Other users must pay for a licence. Check out the Hot Potatoes licencing terms and pricing on the Half-Baked Software Website <http://www.halfbakedsoftware.com/>.

The application software generating the various webtools runs under windows or WINE under linux. The generated code works with any webserver.

Personally speaking the generated teaching tools are great. My students love the crossword puzzles. They are great vocab builders.

I'm sure you've thought of it already, but you could try running those programs under wine. Or you could try Crossover Office. They offer a full-featured trial download (30 days). http://www.codeweavers.com

Subject: [K12OSN] Exam Generator Programs

The only two programs currently keeping me from switching my laptop to a <br>dedicated Linux machine instead of dual booting is a program called <br>Markbook, by Assylum software, for keeping track of student marks, and <br>ExamView Pro Test Generator , which gives you the ability to keep <br>"Question Banks" and then generate quizzes/tests from the question banks.<br><br>I have yet to discover a good Linux alternative for either of these <br>programs.  The Markbook program issue I can sidestep because it also <br>comes in a Mac flavour and I have a single Mac available for graphic ad <br>work etc.<br><br>The test generator I would like to find an alternative to because it <br>would allow me to be much more homogeneous environment in the lab, and I <br>could take my laptop home and mark assignments in 1 OS, and not have to <br>switch/dual boot it<br><br>Anyone have options for me?<br><br>Thanks in advance<br><br>_______________________________________________<br>K12OSN maili!
