A practical and easy-to-use test generator for creating online multiple-choice tests.
http://testmoz.com/. I first learned about it from the website Free Technology for Teachers.
There are several good things about this application. First, you do not need to go through the lengthy process of registration. However, the teachers will have to create two passwords - one for the students and another for themselves to see the test scores. If you decide to make the quiz available to anyone on the net, you don't have to create a password.
Great from the teacher's perspective (but not so handy from the student's) is the one-attempt limit per test. Students can't redo the test (using the same name) to get higher scores.
What takes most time for the teacher is to create the quiz but once you do it, you can use it as many times as you wish, provided you have not lost or forgotten the web address of the test. Each test has a unique address. The teacher can make it accessible to everyone or just send the link to a selected group of students.
Look at the short sample quiz which I made to test the tool. Use any name to enter the quiz http://testmoz.com/975.
