QuizMaker Pro for Mac allows users to create custom quizzes for use in the classroom or as a learning tool at home. This versatile tool is not the sleekest or most intuitive app we've ever seen, but it offers a lot of options for creating assessments that can be administered electronically.
Versatility: QuizMaker Pro can create quizzes with a number of different question types, including multiple choice, matching, short answer, essay, and survey. The app also lets you add explanations to answers and include video, audio, and image files. It makes it easy to organize quizzes by class and student, so teachers can use it easily across classes.
Networkable: With the purchase of a site license, users can set up QuizMaker Pro on a LAN, allowing teachers to administer quizzes to multiple students at once.
Dated interface: QuizMaker Pro may be a Mac app, but it has a decidedly Windows feel to it -- Windows XP, to be exact. Although the interface is not particularly difficult to figure out, it has a clunky look to it that makes the whole app feel outdated.
Stability problems: We were experimenting with the feature that lets you add media to questions, and the software crashed. We're not sure if this was a one-off occurrence or indicative of larger problems.
QuizMaker Pro for Mac is by no means cutting-edge technology, but it's a serviceable option, if you want to create custom electronic quizzes for your students or as a study tool for yourself. Its many features and flexibility make it worth a try.
Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of QuizMaker Pro for Mac 2014r3.
