I am also searching for an app to write math tests. I teach algebra, so I need to be able to enter equations (perhaps using latextit to generate little pdfs of the equations and then importing them into the app). Please consider integrating that ability. Until then, does anyone have any ideas on software to make up math tests?

This is a great program that is well priced. There really isn't a reason for anyone not to register this program. I've tried a number of other programs that are designed to help create problems (for tests and/or studying) and this is by far the easiest to use. The export test only and export key only features are also great.

I realize that this program is really designed for preparing tests and worksheets, but I often like to keep my questions in a Flash card type program. That could be a nice option for future version, but I realize that this is not really the main funciton of the program.

Great program!

Very well designed. The notice at startup says that the shareware fee is only $1. My only problem with this program is that it isn't deisgned for math questions. I was hoping to generate math problems for second and third graders. If I only needed to do reading questions, this program would be flawless.
