Create Dynamic Quizzes and Surveys with iSpring QuizMaker

Last updated on July 3rd, 2023

Back in the day paper-based quizzes were used in classrooms as a regular part of grading students. With remote learning initiatives and increasingly digitalized learning environments, that is not always an option anymore. However, not everyone is tech savvy enough to create a digital version of a quiz that can be automatically graded upon completion. Unless it’s made using the iSpring QuizMaker!

Create Interactive Quizzes and Surveys

The iSpring QuizMaker app can help create quizzes and surveys, with the option to automatically grade questions. Surveys and quizzes created using this app can be published online or printed offline and effectively used to gather information or test the knowledge of your students or audience. The app not only enables creating simple quizzes but you can even include images, videos, and equations to create dynamic quizzes for end users, as well as provides quiz templates.

The app itself is easy enough to use and you can generate quizzes using a format similar to making PowerPoint slides. The developer has even provided detailed introductory videos for app features, as well as a free guide on How to Assess Students Online.
