Make Test for the Macintosh

Article excerpt

Classroom teachers can use Make Test for the Macintosh to develop paper-and-pencil tests of any length or difficulty level. The software allows teachers to create banks of true-false, multiple-choice, free response and fill-in questions and compile them into the same test. Also, it is easy for teachers to add graphics to their questions or answers. Once the graphics are imported, they can be moved but not edited. The question editor allows teachers to create an answer key that indicates the correct answer and contains notes on the question. Make Test has keyboard equivalents for commands that are consistent with most other Macintosh programs--making it easier to learn the program.

Teachers who are patient enough to follow the tutorial will find Make Test versatile and simple to use.

It is important to keep the clearly written manual handy when learning the program.

Questions are categorized by topic and difficulty level. …
