Quizinator is an online service designed to allow educators to compile questions from a large database on various topics and print them in order to be used in the classroom. Quizinator provides users with a simple click and drag interface which allows them to easily create and maintain their own custom collection of documents, and also provides them the security and convenience of having their data stored electronically in one central location, preventing them having to store stacks of papers and risk losing important or often used quizzes or tests.Show more screenshots »
Quizinator was developed for a high school science team in order to provide them a more dynamic means to study. In order to solve the problem of having them go over the same tests from competitions over and over, a simple application was established in order to enter the questions into a database and create quizzes with a variety of questions from the various tests that they had worked with. Soon, it was determined that teachers and instructors could use this application, and after consulting with them, Quizinator was born. Quizinator is used by teachers and instructors to generate quizzes and tests using a database of questions and answers including pictures if desired of their own creation.
From its humble beginnings, Quizinator has grown to fill the needs that teachers and instructors have in regards to generating unique and varied content with their existing course material. It provides teachers with the means to create and store quizzes so that they can simply login and generate a relevant quiz that is both unique and applicable to the classroom lessons being taught. The question database that each user establishes ensures that they only have to enter a single question and answer once, after which they can mix and match from their database as necessary.
The color scheme of Quizinator consists of a dark blue title bar, with the rest of the page light blue, tan and white. The graphics and animations are both effective and informative, giving the user a good idea at a glance as to what Quizinator is all about. Clearly a great deal of time and effort went into the site layout itself, as a new user can fully educate themselves on the functionality and features of Quizinator with only a few clicks. The site is fast and responsive, unencumbered by needless graphics and flashy colors. Overall the site is very professionally designed.
In order to register for Quizinator, users start by clicking the green “Sign up for Quizinator” button located halfway down on the main page. The form requests a first name, last name and a valid email address, as well as a desired password. After which, check the terms of service agreement box and then click “Sign Up for Free”. Quizinator does not send a verification email, so after completing the short registration form, the user is free to login and begin using their Quizinator account.
Quizinator is an entirely free application, which makes it easy for educators to employ in their work without having to incur any added expenses.
Quizinator is designed for teachers and instructors, but certainly due to its origins has uses as a study tool for educational based organizations as well. Teachers can experiment with Quizinator without needing to invest anything other than time, and eventually, the benefits of the site will make themselves apparent, saving them countless hours creating documents, rewriting the same questions and answers if they intend to generate unique quizzes, or hoping they can find the original copy of that same old quiz they give out every time a certain subject is covered.
