Top 18 Online Quiz Makers For Teachers and Educators

Need to check on students’ performance? Here’s a review of 12 free online quiz tools and 6 paid solutions with multiple response types, automatic data processing, SCORM support, etc. Read on and pick your tool for better knowledge assessment.

Psychology, marketing, education – applications for quizzes and quiz authoring solutions are abundant. In the race for more engaging content, the software community has come up with a class of tools that help to author and compile questions into interactive tests, and share them easily with a global audience. This article delivers a round-up of some promising offerings in the field. I’ll touch upon core functionality and add-ons such as extended analytics and sharing options, so you can determine which one is the best fit for your needs.

For better readability, I’ve split this article into two parts – free tools (siblings of the corresponding paid editions), and paid software with enhanced functionality:

A disclaimer: this is, by no means, a biased rating. I am rolling out a list of services in the same order as I checked them out for the sake of this article. Long story short, #1, #2 and further numbers were assigned randomly  and are not at all meant to imply rankings..

Free-to-use siblings of paid software may also have functional limitations, watermarks, action-per-session restrictions and so forth. However, if you do like the features offered by the freebie you’ll probably benefit even more by migrating to the paid version. Sometimes even a free-version sneak peek can entice you to the richer functionality and tech support delivered with premium subscriptions.

12. Google Forms + Flubaroo

Google Forms may be well employed for creating and sharing tests at no cost! All you have to do is create a form, fill in answer keys and assign the quiz. Then you may use the Flubaroo tool to do the grading.


How does it work?

  • Step 1: Make your assignment. Go into your Google Drive, create a new “form” by clicking “NEW” and finding “Google Forms”. Add the questions for your assignment, save and quit the form.
  • Step 2: Enter the answer keys. Fill in the correct answers and your name for further identification.
  • Step 3: Share with an audience. Post a link on your website or send it via email, Google Classroom or whichever channel works for you. As learners make their entries, their responses will appear in the spreadsheet.
  • Step 4: Grade the results. Open the spreadsheet associated with the forms, and install Flubaroo as a plugin to Google Forms right from the “Add-ons” menu. Once set up, Flubaroo will come up with a few questions, such as whether specific questions should not be graded, which are the identification questions, which entry serves as the answer key, etc. When you are done answering, the software will start grading!
  • Step 5: Grade review. The Flubaroo-generated grades will be stored in the “Grades” worksheet. For each submission, Flubaroo will determine which questions got a correct response (one point), which were answered incorrectly (zero points), and which remained ungraded.

License options

Now, what’s the bottom line?

The majority of the reviewed free services are equipped with sharing options and post-assessment analytics. That covers a good deal of scenarios as far as personal/home use is concerned. However, the mentioned solutions are not compatible with SCORM, Tin Can or other formats employed by learning management systems (LMSs). LMS integration is either not supported or works for a same-brand solution only. LMS-ready quiz makers are readily available on the market, but there is always a price to pay. That’s where the commercial tools kick in.

When putting together the pieces of your e-Learning puzzle, make sure to analyze your workflows and objectives in detail so you can balance out the free alternatives with the commercial brands. Best of luck in your assessments, and keep the quizzes up to the mark of your edu content!

What's the best quiz maker for you?

Last but not least, I’d be happy to learn your thoughts and suggestions. Are you closely familiar with any of the solutions on my Top 18 list? Have they worked out well for you? Don’t hesitate to share your feedback.

  • Scott, thanks for the article! I have a very specific query. Hopefully you can help me out. I was looking for a tool that would assist in students’ self-assessment for self-study assignments. Any suggestions?

    • Sally, I believe in this case you’re after comprehensive solutions like Articulate. ProProfs should also suit your purposes. Generally, you’re looking for software bundled with a cloud service where the test is stored so the learner gets the results right away. A greater variety of question types would be another benefit in your case.

      • We wasted a lot of time using Articulate which charged a lot for support and relegated you to online blogs to find answers. Even when we paid for support, their teams often could not solve the problem. We gave up on them and hours of recorded classes went to the trash.

    • Hi Sally, I run a company called Synap which does exactly what you’re looking for! It’s free to use (with some premium options for intensive use), and lets students/teachers create practice and share quizzes! Feel free to check it out at and get in touch with us via the on-site chat if you have any questions 🙂

  • Hi Scott,

    Googleforms & Flubaroo looks good for our company use.
    We need it for quick quizzes 15 questions.

    One question:
    Are participant emails addresses tracked or used by Google or any third party for marketing or user profiling?

    • Andy, it’s a tricky one. In fact, nobody knows. Security has always been considered an issue with cloud services, but it’s a risk you have to take. On the one hand, Internet companies are notorious Peeping Toms. On the other hand, I heard about scammers trying to phish user data from Google Docs and Google Forms a few years back, but I’m sure Google has enough resources to tackle such attempts promptly.

  • Hello,
    I am on the hunt for the perfect software to generate trackable quizzes that can be overlaid on my training videos. I would like to go into greater detail through conversation with you if possible. Please contact me at your convenience. Thank you in advance.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for the article, Great comparison.

    I just wanted to note for ClassMarker, there is Education pricing (not just free usage) which is 50% off Business pricing and comes with ‘all’ features included.

    Users can also purchase Credits packs alongside or as an alternative to their Professional plans.

    Business: $39.95/$79.95
    Education: Free/$19.95/$39.95
    Multiple Credit packs are available.

    • IT IS NOT FREE!!!!
      I tested ClassMarker, very good platform with a lot of instruments BUT it is free for educators only for one month. I was so frustrated to create tests based on theirs promises and to throw away everything after one month.

  • Hey I am looking to do quick survey type. There are correct answers to some questions but I want timed questions and they can’t go back and change an answer. Once they start they have a overall quiz timer. I need logic branching. This is for a psychology class.

  • Do I post articles and quizzes in single website or shall I use sub-domain for the quizzes. Which would be better for long terms?

  • Hello Scott.

    Great list of comparison. As a teacher physics and biology I am always interested in innovating material to help my students. For a long time I have been looking for a program that has a login and remembers the last visited page my students have visited, so next time they log in they can start from that particular page/question. (I make a ton of pages with info and questions which, if answered correct link to the next pages (in PowerPoint) However still haven’t found such. (hot potatoes does something like that, but I don’t fancy the general looks of the program.) Do you have a suggestion?

    Kind regards, Douwe

    • Try Quiz Creator by PC Shareware. It’s a one-time cost of 29.95 and creates very professional quality html quizzes (both multiple choice and short answer question types) and it’s a VERY easy program to use.

  • Can any of these programs display multiple questions on a page or slide? Looking to display a host of math problems on a page and then display/calculate accuracy.

  • Hello, I am a business psychologist,
    I want to use a countdown timer (90 minutes) for an online simulation. In a nutshell, they press START, they see a 20-page document for 90 minutes, then it disappears when the time is up.
    Can you do this? Thanks!

    • I guess many quiz makers can make quizzes with timer. I’m using iSpring QuizMaker and you can set limits to time and number of attempts. Hope it helps!

  • Hi Scott! This article is really helpful.
    Can’t wait to try the free quiz makers! Thanks! Cheers!
    Violet, E-Learning Rockstar

  • Thanks for this great list! I work as a teacher and I have gone through different test-making tools (getting a bit weary) but can’t seem to find one that has both of these features:
    – Possibility to CHOOSE if you want auto-correct or not per question (very important – why is this so rare…?? there should be an option for the teacher to grade some questions manually and some automatically… not all questions are fit for automatic grading!).
    – Fill-the-blanks question types (i.e. where you don’t have to make an X or a set of underscores______ in the question)

    Do you know if there’s a tool that provides both?

  • Thank you for your posting. I try to use some of the software for my class, and I am doing a research about the software. If you don’t mind, could you tell me when you post the 18 top quiz makers for teachers and educators? I am writing the report but I could not find the time you post the article.

  • Hi
    Thank you for this comparison. I’ve been using proprof for years, but I’m seriously looking at alternatives because it’s getting buggier and the quizzes cannot be done on mobile devices. It is really simple to create quizzes and it has lots of different templates. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to be keeping up with the times.
    Let me know if there are good quiz maker for students doing online assessment and auto-grading. Thank you.

  • Hi I use Google Forms but my quizzes are interrupted by Google recaptcha.
    I have enabled google recaptcha v3 which is mentioned that runs in backdrop but still problem persist
    Can you please help me?
    Or How to add recaptcha in google form?

  • Hot Potatoes looks great, but I could not use it on my Chromebook.

    Just FYI – redirects to has a free version but to take full advantage of all features they have three pricing tiers – $15/month and $29/month are the “normal person” plans. 😉 However, those are “sale” prices. “50% OFF Forever and First 30 Days Free – Sale Ends Soon”.

    The 30-day free trial is nice. I’m trying the “standard plan” ($15/month). So far it looks like a good value.

  • I am trying to make an interactive quiz like avant listening and speaking where they listen and then choose the correct answer. For speaking they will listen to directions and record their answer. Is there a program that I can use for that?

  • Thank you so much for your research on quiz/test makers! Very, very helpful and time-saving.
