I will definitely have some feedback after reviewing these tools to create online assessments. Creating assessments is an important first step because you don't give the prescription on how to fix a business before you've figured out what the problem are-that's why you begin with the assessments- they become your base starting point of reference. This article has tools to help you create those online assessments.Let me know which are your favorite tools.

I've seen lots of these 'Bloom's Mash Up's' lately - I guess it is just a matter of finding what works for you. I personally think that visually this pyramid style would appeal to Junior teachers, it's less fuss and would be less likely to cause information overload than the full circle style ones.
