Multiple Choice Quizes
ClasssMaker is an easy to use online test creator, it is easy to create online tests and quizzes, and then invite others to participate. You can create multiple choice, true false, free text, short answer, fill in the blank and punctuation quizzes. Furthermore, ClassMaker allows you to create ‘class rooms’ and assign different tests to each of them. At the end, you can invite participant groups to desired class and track their test progress in one place (ClassMaker, 2009).

This awesome tool fits well within Oliver’s learning framework (Australian University Teachers Committee, 2003) because of the three aspects; the learning tasks, resources and support. This framework supports the use of the quiz as a tool of assessment. The next phase within the framework relies upon the resources needed to complete these learning tasks, this therefore relating to the online quizzes to check for learning along the way.
Therefore in conclusion by not only having an online quiz to check for learning and as an assessment tool, it is great to have in place to allow students the support and encouragement that is seeked both from parents and students.
