We were looking for a tool that will help us create comprehension tests for the end of units in less time. We needed something automated that can save us grading time.
We started using ProProfs Quiz Maker in order to get test results back to students faster. It was amazing to see that with ProProfs, we could easily create online tests with automated grading & instant feedback.
The instant feedback feature helped increase student responsibility in reading! It worked as desired - students didn’t have to wait for the results and staff for the reports - they would get the results and feedback instantly. Best of all - questions and answers shuffle automatically, which helps teachers prevent cheating. We also like how we can search for images and add them to the tests to make them interesting.
