Editors' review

The developers of PEST software, designed for creating quizzes and tests, must have had a sense of humor. But it lives up to its name in several senses. Although a powerful shortcut for creating computerized tests, it can be a bit aggravating in practice. The program begins with text and script editors, but we found the interface awkward, with clumsy, abbreviated buttons without an immediately obvious function. Newcomers to this type of interface--and perhaps even veterans--will be well served by a trip through the manual, as well as a perusal of the bundled sample test. However, once over these hurdles, we were impressed with the results. The application can produce a range of different formats, including multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, flash cards, and drag-and-drop sequences. The company's site also features free downloads of quizzes on subjects ranging from world history to baseball statistics. The trial version of the software allows unlimited use for 21 days. If you're a teacher looking to create digital tests for your students, this might well be worth a look, as long as you're willing to invest some time learning the ropes yourself.

    "Been drilling myself with Pest quizzes over 10 years!"

    May 18, 2014   |   By MichaelRhodes

    Version: PEST - Professional Exam System 3.25

    Pros

    It's really easy to take OCR scans of books and bring the printed page to life. Typing up a quiz from scratch is far easier than all the other quiz programs out there. Very impressive collection of quizzes at the website.

    Cons

    The program looks a little dated, the copyright says 2000-2014, and the interface really does look like the year 2000, but all the functionality is there. With all the hours I've put in over the years, it's developed an "old faithful" look to my eyes.

    Summary

    It had been quite a few years since I'd visited the website and I was blown away by the number of new quizzes at the website. Great to see Pest is still out there with tons of new quizzes being submitted.
