I would like to start a conversation on the different tools to create multiple choice tests.

I currently use MS Word. (Painful)
I have used LXR( 15 years ago)

I would like to be able to type in a formula to generate answers and distactors.
( I can do this with excel and word pulling in the numbers)

Thanks,
Bruce

Not sure what content area(s) you are looking for.....

If Math, then check out Kuta Software. We use in my school for Alg 1, Alg 2, and Geometry. Fast, flexible, effective. Not ridiculously expensive.

You can download a 30 day trial and play with it.

We are looking at MC creation tools. I still think one of the best is Moodles question tool.

For multiple choice questions, wrong answers are prefixed with a tilde (~) and the correct answer is prefixed with an equal sign (=).

Who's buried in Grant's tomb?{~Grant ~Jefferson =no one}

The Missing Word format automatically inserts a fill-in-the-blank line (like this _____) in the middle of the sentence. To use the Missing Word format, place the answers where you want the line to appear in the sentence.

Grant is {~buried =entombed ~living} in Grant's tomb.

If the answers come before the closing punctuation mark, a fill-in-the-blank line will be inserted for the "missing word" format. All question types can be written in the Missing Word format.
