Are you looking for a quick and easy way to create tests, quizzes, courses, or exams for free?
Whether you're making a zoom trivia quiz for friends or formal tests for students, this guide shows you how to make an online test that saves you time and costs nothing.
A vast choice of online test makers offer various free features with some limitations.
The big question is, how do you know which platform is the best for you?
To start, you'll need to consider what type of quiz you're creating, who your target audience is, and what you want to achieve.
I'd recommend looking for a test-taker that can offer these free features at a minimum.
The FlexiQuiz free plan offers all of the above features and more!
Once you've selected your favorite test maker and drafted your questions, you can start building your quiz.
Next, enter a title for your quiz.
The name typically reflects the subject but can be formal, imaginative, or crazy.
However, there's no need to spend hours thinking of a smart title as you can easily change it at a later time.
Next, type your questions and any answer options onto the test maker platform. The test-maker platform will provide several formats so that you can present the question suitably.

An online test maker saves you time by marking and scoring the quizzes so you don't need to decipher bad handwriting or check which boxes people have ticked. Sit back, relax with a cup of coffee or even a cheeky G&T.
Depending on how you've configured the system, test takers can be told their score straight away, or you can share at a later time.
With FlexiQuiz, all of your quiz results are saved on a single dashboard for you to view and analyze. Please note that most test-takers have a limit on the number of responses and FlexiQuiz allows you to collect up to 20 responses on an unlimited number of quizzes.
Results can be downloaded in an excel file for detailed analysis or easy sharing.
