TAC-Soft's Quiz Maker Programs

By popular request ... FREEWARE VERSIONS

Following the recent "retirement" of the Teaching Templates Quiz Maker, several customers have asked whether it is still possible to access one or other of the special modules the TTQM software contained. Most requests concern either the WebWrap compression and encryption tool for HTML files or the Multiple Choice Quiz Maker for Silverlight application. Both can now be downloaded as freeware from the following links:

WebWrap is a small 3-in-1 utility program to compress and/ or code your HTML web files. It uses either a modified LZSS algorithm or the URL encryption procedure, and can reduce the size of your files by more than 50%. It also renders the source of any HTML pages you have created, your design features and your scripts for example, inaccessible to easy viewing or simple clip and paste procedures. The "WebWrapped" files you create are self-extracting and do not require any third-party software. In addition to compressing and coding your HTML files, you also have the opportunity to add automatically a password protection script.


The MC Quiz Maker for *Silverlight program is an easy-to-use, timesaving authoring tool for creating interactive, WEB-based exercises, tests and quizzes. The exercises are all basically of HTML type, and are fully portable to any computer with the Windows operating system and with the Internet Explorer browser installed. They can be incorporated in a Web page on the Internet, or executed as stand-alone programs at home or in the classroom.

The interactivity relies on client-side JavaScript and on the Microsoft Silverlight browser plugin, both of which work independently of any other server. No knowledge of any programming language is required to use the authoring tools effectively. The user's only task is to enter the necessary data - questions, answers, etc. - and the program creates the Web pages automatically.

In addition to complete control of the content of the exercises, the Quiz Maker for Silverlight also allows the author considerable influence on the appearance of the exercises e.g. by choosing to change the background colour or the font characteristics.

The quizzes can be uploaded directly to a web server by using the integrated FTP file upload module.
