Classmaker is a great to make quizzes for the class. I think it would be something the student's would enjoy allot more than just doing paper based quizzes and the teacher could easily keep track of results as its lists who has taken the test and what they got. I did have a little trouble thought making it accessible so everyone can view it. So I will have to have a chat to a few people and try again later. I also did not get a chance to implement in the classroom. However, I based the test on Frogs though because for reading groups last week we did a small paper based quiz after the book. This would have been a much better way to engage the learners in the learning experience and provide me with some feedback on what knowledge they actually retained.

These quizzes would give students the opportunity to reflect on the knowledge they had learnt in a particular unit of work. Teachers could base the content of the quiz on what the class has covered so far. This would give the teacher an idea of not only what knowledge the students had acquired but if they could then integrate the knowledge in higher order thinking patterns that would be required for such quizzes (Marzano & Pickering, 2006).

20/08/09 update: Thank you so much Lauren for your help. Really Appreciate it! Managed to get the URL for the direct test which I have posted. Really great to have the help on the forum's for things like this.
