ProProfs Launches Free Online Quiz Service
2/22/2007—Online learning resource provider ProProfs.com has launched a new service called ProProfs Quiz School, which allows teachers to generate custom quizzes online. The new service is available free for educators and students.
Quiz School is designed to let educators create online quizzes and practice tests for their students. In addition to custom quizzes, the service provides a library of pre-designed quizzes, which range from K-12 education to technology certification, SAT and GRE prep, and general trivia.
"We recognized the need for a comprehensive assessment resource from the suggestions of real students and instructors," said Sameer Bhatia, founder and President of ProProfs, in a prepared statement. "We created ProProfs Quiz School to address these needs by allowing for open and free access to an ever-expanding collection of learning assessments."
Students can take tests without logging onto the system and receive instant scores and personalized feedback, including tips for improving performance, according to the company. Users can also assign keywords to specific quizzes for easy retrieval.
Other features include:
- Customizable user interfaces;
- Voting, raking and commenting on quizzes; and
- The ability to download and print quizzes.
