Word Matching Quiz Stacks

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 "word matching" quiz, in which the student is given a definition or question and is to click on the matching word or phrase in the list. The stack gives immediate feedback (graphic and/or audio), keeps score, and allows the student to clear the score and start over.

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 word matching quiz stack (on a 5th grade archaeology unit) can be downloaded as a self-extracting archive from

This example was constructed using one of the Word Matching Templates, which are provided with complete instructions as a self-extracting archive.
