There are so many ways you can test the knowledge of your learners. Whether it's in a corporate or vocational setting to train workers, or teaching students as an educator, quizzes can be one way to test their knowledge and how well they've taken in the course content so far. There are several types of quizzes, and a better way to assess your learners' knowledge may actually be with assignments. Quizzes can be an easier and simpler standard method though that is more easily automated in terms of grading within applications.
In this article, we're going to tell you about our top 5 favourite AI based quiz generators after testing almost every one out there.
Coursebox is a cutting-edge AI course creator which includes an AI quiz generator within its product. So if you're looking for a comprehensive tool that not only generates quizzes with AI, but also generates your course pages, automatically selects stock images, writes assignment questions, and automatically assesses submissions with AI based on a marking rubric, then Coursebox is a great option. It also displays the quizzes and all course content to learners in an easy to use mobile app or online depending on their preferences. Coursebox's AI algorithms can generate single or multiple answer quiz questions based on the existing course content, ensuring that each quiz is tailored to the specific learning material. Additionally, Coursebox offers analytics tools to track learner progress and identify areas where they may need additional support.
Quiz Gecko is another AI based quiz creator tool. It allows educators to create multi-choice quizzes as well as true/false, and short answer questions. The AI analyses the text to generate relevant questions.
Quizbot has heaps of different question types besides multi-choice quizzes like true/false, fill in the blanks and matching. If you just need a quiz writer, it can be a good option. Although it really is just for helping you write your questions, not send them out through an app and then automatically assess and track the learner progress compared to something like Coursebox.
Questgen has a few options to produce quiz questions with artificial intelligence too such as MCQs, fill in the blanks, true/false and quizzes in line with Bloom's taxonomy.
Although it might seem like an obvious answer, ChatGPT is one of our favourite quiz generators. The advantage compared to most dedicated quiz generator tools is you can have a conversation with it going back and forth to iteratively improve the quizzes to a higher degree than most apps enable. Plus you can use ChatGPT plugins and new functionalities coming out as they are released. For example, you could reference a link or upload documents to make quiz questions on. The disadvantage compared to something like Coursebox is you'll still need to copy and paste the quizzes into your course building tool. Plus, the results will be highly variable based on your prompts.
Here's a couple prompt templates below you can try out though which might help improve the quality of the results:
- Act as a senior instructional designer, writing 5 quiz questions in the format [insert quiz format] for a course titled [insert course name] within a course section titled [insert course title], after completing a number of course sub sections titled [insert names of each course subsections completed within the current section]. Make the quiz questions of [insert difficulty level] difficulty. - Act as an experienced teacher in [insert topic]. Generate 10 multiple choice quizzes for my course on [course topic] for my learners who are [insert description of your learners] after they have completed some study surrounding [insert course studies]
- Read the relevant link or documents referenced and provide true/false quiz questions that are of an advanced difficulty relating to the link/documents. Here's another video opinion on the top AI Quiz generator tools that might also help you in the search for the best AI quiz writing tool.
So there you have it! These are our top 5 AI quiz generators of 2023. Take them for a spin and let us know what you think. We hope you find something that can help you write your quiz questions faster and better! While AI can help speed up the process of producing quizzes, it's best to look at it from a learner engagement perspective too. Just testing knowledge with repetitive quizzes of one quiz type can get boring for learners. Make sure you mix it up by using different quiz types and other methods of testing like flashcards, video quizzes, connect the dots, fill in the blanks and graded assignment/scenario submissions.
