Create Image-based Quizzes with ImageQuiz

ImageQuiz is a new service that allows you to create quizzes based on any images that you own or find online. When people take your quizzes on ImageQuiz they answer your questions by clicking on the part of the picture that answers each question. For example, if you uploaded a picture of a map you could write questions that ask users to click on states, cities, or countries.

Creating a quiz on ImageQuiz is an easy process. First, give your quiz a title and then upload a picture or copy and paste the URL of an online image into ImageQuiz. Then draw outlines around the parts of the picture that will be the answers to your questions. Finally, write your questions and try your quiz. To share your quiz just give people the URL of your quiz. You can try my sample quiz here.

Applications for Education
ImageQuiz could be a good tool for teachers to use to create geography quizzes or any quiz in which students need to be able to visually identify specific items.

5 Tools to Create and Administer Quizzes Online

Other than attending staff meetings, writing and grading quizzes might be the least enjoyable part of teaching. Fortunately, there are some tools that can make the process a little bit easier. Here are five tools teachers can use to create and administer quizzes online. There are many other quiz and survey tools on the web, but not all of them provide the option to see quiz takers' results. These five were chosen because teachers can see their students' results.

I use Google Forms for giving short multiple choice quizzes. I create the quizzes in Google Forms, post them on my classroom blog, students take the quiz on my blog, and their answers appear in an easy-to-grade spreadsheet. Below I've embedded a slideshow with directions for creating and embedding quizzes using Google Forms, but here are a few points that should be emphasized.

1. Make sure the first question is "student name." Otherwise you won't know who submitted which answers.
2. You can mix question types (multiple choice, short answer, paragraph) but if you have too many types and too many students, the spreadsheet can become difficult to navigate.
3. When embedding the form into a blog, make sure you edit the width to fit within your blog's main column. You can use the same principles of editing the size of a YouTube video for editing the width of a spreadsheet.


Zoho Challenge is a part of the Zoho suite of document, presentation, and office productivity tools. Zoho Challenge is a tool that allows you to create and administer quizzes online. Zoho Challenge tests can be written with multiple choice or open-ended questions or a combination of both. Tests created with Zoho Challenge can have a time limit imposed or be given without a time limit. Each test can be individually assigned to test takers. Finally, when a test is created with Zoho Challenge the test creator can decide whether or not the test taker can see the results. In June of this year Zoho Challenge introduced an option for including comprehensive questions that you can use to write questions based upon a paragraph statement, an image, or a combination of both.

Last spring ProProfs launched ProProfs Quiz School. The ProProfs Quiz School gives quiz creators a digital report card that is tracked and stored online. The digital report card tracks information about the number of times a quiz is attempted and tracks the results of the quizzes. The Quiz School also allows quiz creators to control which users can access a quiz and place a limit on how many times a quiz can be taken. Finally, quizzes created through the ProProfs Quiz School allow quiz takers to get instant feedback on their answers.

MyStudiyo is an easy way to make a multimedia quiz for your website or blog. With MyStudiyo you can include video, audio, and image file in your quiz. Each question in your quiz can have a different media format. There are two options for answer format, multiple choice or open-ended response. Quizzes are easy to create and easy to embed into a website or blog. If your students register for a MyStudiyo account before they take your quiz, you can monitor their quiz results.

That Quiz is an online quiz tool that has been around for a long time (in Internet terms), but is still widely used by educators. On ThatQuiz.org you can write quizzes and find quizzes that your students can use. ThatQuiz.org is kind of like a wiki of quizzes because teachers can share with others the quizzes that they have written. ThatQuiz.org does more than just provide quizzes for teachers. Students can take the quizzes online and get instant feedback. Teachers can use ThatQuiz.org to track the results of quizzes their students take. ThatQuiz.org started out as a resource just for math quizzes, but is now expanded to include vocabulary and geography quizzes.

Create a Quiz from a Catalog of Questions

Quizinator is a free service designed to make the process of creating quizzes, exams, and other printable activities a more efficient process for teachers. Quizinator acts as a storage bank for multiple choice, true/false, and free response questions. Quizinator enables you to create a bank of your own questions or pick from their questions to create quizzes. If you create your own questions, you can include images in the question. To create a new quiz simply select the questions you want to appear on your quiz and Quizinator will add them to it. When you've selected all the questions you want, Quizinator will format the quiz for printing.

Where Quizinator shines is in its capacity for creating multiple versions of the same quiz. By selecting questions in a different order Quizinator allows you to rearrange the sequence in which questions appear on your quiz. That beats the heck out of retyping or even copying and pasting questions. Quizinator also provides a drag and drop function for editing the layout and elements appearing on your quiz.

Applications for Education
Quizinator could be a good resource for teachers who have to give the same quiz or test to multiple sections of the same course. Once you have your questions in your Quizinator account you can create many versions of the same quiz just by selecting questions in a different order each time you create a quiz.

Scholastic Word Wizard - Vocab Quiz Creator

Creating vocabulary quizzes is one of the necessary, yet tedious tasks that most teachers have to do. Fortunately, Scholastic has created a free program that will make creating vocabulary quizzes quicker and easier. The Scholastic Word Wizard Vocab Quiz Maker does everything for you except select the words for your quiz. To use the word wizard simply enter into the quiz maker a list of up to twenty-five words. The quiz maker will then, if necessary, ask you to specify the form of the word(s) you've entered. After that the quiz maker generates a vocabulary quiz for you complete with a word bank on one side of the page and questions on the other side.

Applications for Education
The Scholastic Vocab Quiz Maker can be used to generate vocabulary quizzes for any grade level.
