Learnclick makes creating online tests quick and easy

Learnclick makes creating online tests quick and easy | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

At http://www.learnclick.com it is very simple to create quizzes. For gap-filling exercises (so-called cloze tests) you just mark the words with your mouse. Learnclick.com also lets you generate drag & drop, drop down and matching exercises. You can insert images, video and sound into your quizzes. Share the quizzes with your students and view detailed statistics on how well your students performed. It is the ideal tool for language teachers.

Nik Peachey's insight:

Learnclick is a really useful site for teachers. I reviewed it back in 2012 (http://www.quickshout.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/create-interactive-cloze-texts.html), but they have been quite a lot of work since then, so well worth revisiting.

It gives you a list of words you are likely to look up in the dictionary as far as the given text is concerned, guesses a good dictionary definition for the words along with example sentences.

Hello Nik! I am Andrew, the creator of Word Booster. Thanks for writing about us!

If you are using higher level text for your ESL/EFL students to read, you might want to take a few minutes and check this site out.  It works with online articles, and by just copying and pasting the URL, in less than 60 seconds, you will have vocabulary words highlighted, a word list with definitions and a vocabulary quiz with an answer key.  I love that it did all of that work for me in less time than it took me to check my log in and check my email!
