starQuiz overview

Note: starQuiz is not being sold anymore and is listed only for people who had purchased it in the past.

starQuiz is an easy to use software package that makes computerized testing a snap! You can create quizzes with multiple-choice, multiple select, true or false, short answer, fill in the blank, matching, numeric, and essay questions. Quizzes can include pictures, movies, Web links, time limits, and more.

Students can take the quiz in a computer lab using starQuiz NetClient, then see their results as soon as they finish the quiz. Or, upload the quiz to the free quiz.cosmicsoft.net hosting service, where students can take it from any internet-connected computer. If you'd rather give the quiz in your classroom, print it out on paper.

It's a good application and I have used it for some time but with the developer hired full-time by Facebook, it seems to have been abandoned. There is no support whatsoever and no response from the server where the quiz results are collected so I do not know if my students completed the tests. It's a great waste of time for them, and also demotivating.

Currently using the Demo and the program seems to work very well. I had some difficulty importing because of commas (throughout the questions) but everything worked out fine when I changed the file to tab delimited. I would like to see some more control over the web test, so hopefully there will be regular updates in the future. I do love the ability to see the results right from my desktop, a very nice feature.

I've played with the demo over the last 24 hours or so and have enjoyed putting it to the test (as it were). Totally worth the full price, but hey, half price is even better. This product is well done. If you haven't checked it out yet, I'd do so.... quickly before this deal is gone.

I think this is a really neat thing.. but I'm rather dubious about putting tests online for students to take where it actually affects their grade. If you think about it, they are one tabbed browser instance away from...Google. :) It seems quite nice for making tests to print out though. I wish our school used Macs, I'd donate this software to my children's teacers..

Mmm, I like this thing. Lots of options make it very useful, and it's nice to be able to save to PDF (you can do this very quickly via the Print dialog).

Well for starters this sounds like a good piece of software to use in my classroom. I teach various subjects and have kids on various levels. One thing if you know as a teacher is your always looking for some way to save you time, since your day starts and by the time the class is over you have little if any time to sit and grade, so your left taking the stuff home to grade. Another fact that i like about this is that what makes it hard is that kids that are absent and then make up the test you have little time or space to have them come into your classroom and quietly sit and take the test this way they can take it when they are ready and from anywhere. with the state standards and having to qualify for state funding these days you have to have copies of tests and results that your students are learning and more and more i think about this program its exciting to finally find something like this cuz the tests that the companies put together with the texts that students can take are somewhat awkward and then what happends when you have a kid thats in sped, you really dont have any other way to figure that in with this you can quilkly make some questions with pictures that help those learners that are also visual learners. Some times just taking simple pen and paper test they can be tedious to grade and this simplifies things, the last thing i love is that its not expensive since as a teacher you know we spend our money all the time on stuff we need so most of the time were broke so i love this price goes hand in hand.

This is one of the best software for creating quizzes and test. This surely will be indispensable in teaching my kids and also in teaching members in our Church!

simple and works ... works straight without difficulties - easy drag and drop/publish/print.. I did test it and bought it.. at that price it'sab solute ok ... the web limit at 5 megs (each quiz, not total) is not that low and the pro service is a fair 5 usd/month if needed .. or you can use your own server .. that's so fare I got ...I will test it more ...

It would be very convenient for me, as a teacher, to be able to give a quiz through the internet like this. How helpful that starQuiz includes a free hosting service where we can upload the quiz! Great idea!!

I have a client who needed a custom quiz set up for his web site. We haven't done these in house and were looking to outsource, but the good outsource options were THOUSANDS of dollars. This looks like a great compromise between power and price, given the online delivery solution.

Very nice program! Most of the teaching I do doesn't involve quizzes, but keep the teacher-related promos coming!

This could be a great way to keep tests "fresh" rather than recycling the same material over and over because there isn't time to reformat a test organized in a word processor or something...!
