The Old Days
Quizzes in general have come a long way. In the old days, in order to take a quiz, teachers (or whomever) had to type and prepare them manually. And, I remember vividly how teachers and parents would quiz the avid student by using flash cards. Later Hypercard by Apple was a great piece of computer software to use in the creation of quizzes.
Nowadays, you can use software to quickly create quizzes and tests for students. And of course, you can take a quiz online, and even take complete online courses that quiz and test you online. Not only that, there are a plethora of study guides and strategies to help prepare you for these online quizzes and tests!
Yes, nowadays, with the Internet as our world wide tool of communication, we can take quizzes and tests anywhere in the world. We can take online college courses online, or do online driving school, and we can prepare quizzes (if we are teachers) for our students online. Though in most cases today, the typical student still takes quizzes in the classroom, that scenario is beginning to change rapidly, as more and more students are afforded the opportunity to take quizzes and tests online and from virtually anywhere.
My Brief Experience With Creating Quiz Software
There was a time in the past when I created my own quiz software in the C programming language. I was a Computer Science student at the time, and I built a simple quiz for learning State Capitols and Major Cities and States Names. It was a fun project but I realized all the hardwork that when into it.
Today’s quiz software and online quiz generating tools make it so much easier for the user to create custom quizzes and tests. Take, for example, the quiz software on ProProfs.

ProProfs.com is a site where you can easily create your own quizzes as well as take them.
I was able to create a quick quiz on the ProProfs website, and embedded it on this page for you to take.
Let’s see if you know a little bit about me…
How Did You Do?
If you’ve known me for years, hopefully, you passed with flying colors. If not, start reading about me on this blog and get to know me. But the quiz itself was pretty simple.
ProProfs.com’s Quiz Maker is a great online tool for creating some quick quizzes, but you CAN get a bit more sophisticated if you want to… like adding graphics and images, creating links and inserting video into your questions.
