This is one example of a series of experimental Hypercard stacks that we developed to be used by students for practicing taking tests. This one is a based on the standard four-answer multiple choice quiz, in which the student is given a question and is to click on the correct answer. The stack gives immediate feedback (graphic and/or audio), keeps score, and allows the student to clear the score and start over. In this variation of the multiple choice quiz stack, a graphic accompanies the question.
In this variation, there is a large text field in place of the graphic.
A "fill-in-the-blanks" template is provided for the construction of new tests. Complete instructions for the teacher are provided on how to enter questions and phrases and the correct answers.
A working example of a graphic multiple choice quiz stack, with pictures and questions about famous people and places, can be downloaded as a self-extracting archive from
inform.umd.edu Educational_Resources/ Faculty_Resources_and_Support/ ChemConference/ Software/ Hypercard/ MultimediaExamples/ GraphicMultChoice.sea.hqxThis stack was constructed using the Graphic Multiple Choice Template. A working example of a text multiple choice quiz stack, on a 5th-grade archaeology unit, can be downloaded also, as can the Template that was used to construct it.
