Testmaker Grades 1–12 prepares elementary, middle, and high school students for Math, Social Studies, Science, and vocabulary tests. Each test is comprised of multiple-choice questions. When users create a test, they must first select their school level and then the subject area. Next, users must select the specific subject category (e.g., if users select “science” as the subject area, they must then select biology, chemistry, earth science, or physics as the subcategory). At this point, a new menu opens and users select the questions they wish to be included in their test. (In this menu, users are able to select the first topic’s questions before being required to purchase additional test questions.) Once users select all the questions that they want included, they then click the “next” button on this page, which requires them to name their test. After naming their test, users have the option to create another test or take the test they just created. If they choose to take the test, users will be presented with their test and can begin answering questions. If they choose to create another test, the test they just created will be saved to their library. Once users complete a created test, they are presented with the number of questions they correctly answered, incorrectly answered, and a percentage score. They can then choose to review the questions they missed. After completing the test, users again have the option to create a new test or to take a test saved to their library.

Instructional Ideas

  1. After using this app and understanding how it presents questions, students can model this app’s question-and-answer format to create their own tests. After students create their own tests, they can swap with a classmate and complete his or her test. After completing the test, the student can return the test back to his or her classmate for grading. Once the test has been graded, the two classmates can discuss any test questions that were missed.
  2. Teachers can launch this app and project their iPad. Together, as a class, teachers and students can answer the different test questions. To enhance this activity, teachers can facilitate class discussions about why the correct answer is correct and the incorrect answers are incorrect.
  3. During free time in class, teachers can have students create tests using this app to help them prepare for upcoming assessments.
