iSpring Free QuizMaker comes with three quiz templates, multiple-choice, multiple response, and short answer. To add a question, click on the “Question” button on the top left corner of the software and select the type of question. Alternatively, you can also press the “Ctrl + M” buttons.

Click on the “Publish” button and the software saves a publishing copy on your computer. This file will be opened in your web browser where students can attempt the quiz. You can also send this file via email to your students and ask them to attempt the quiz. One drawback of the software that I found is that the export option is missing.
4] Solen Test Maker
Solen Test Maker is another simple free quiz maker software for teachers. Its interface is very easy to understand. It lets you create quizzes in two formats:
- Multiple Choice format
- True False format
After entering each question, you have to click on the “Add Question to Test” button. The software also has a preview box that shows all the questions you added to a particular test. From here, you can edit, remove, and change the serial number of a particular question. To change the serial number, select the question and click on any of the Up or Down keys on the left side. It saves the project in its own format. One demerit of the software is that you cannot export the created test but its “Take a Test” feature lets your students attempt the test on PC and submit it. When they submit, the software displays their result.
To start a test, go to “Test > Take a Test.” After that go to “File > Open” and select any of the saved files. Now, click on the “Begin” button.

This feature is useful when different teachers use the same software to create the quizzes. You can change the quiz format by clicking the “Answer Type” button.
