Free 'Quiz School' Resource Adds Analytics, Integrates with Flickr and Google Maps


ProProfs has upgraded Quiz School, a free online resource that allows educators generate custom assessments. The new version, launched this week, adds integration with popular social media services and includes new analytics and reporting features.

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.

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.

New in the latest round of Quiz School upgrades are support for YouTube-style widgets, integration with Flickr (for using images in quizzes), trends and analytics reports, integration with Google Maps, new customizable themes and styles, RSS feeds, and several enhancements to quiz generation itself, including new question types, new quiz types, and new grading features.
