So after 10 months, 12 completely different versions and several million lines of code, the 'Create-A-Test' is ready to go.
Now comes the fun game I like to call, 'See how many bugs we can find'. Keep in mind this is like a super super super early version and things can and will change. But in the meantime you can check it out here.
Some of the features are:
Over 350 different problems / types
Sort by Subject or Standard
Save / Share your sheets
If you notice any bugs or weirdness, please let me know: Contact
This is actually something thats TECHNICALLY been available since the site first launched, but just disabled.
In the bottom right hand corner of all the pages is the 'quick options' menu. Which lets you add the ccss, due date or disable modified sheets on any newly generated sheet.
Additionally there is a link under 'other stuff' called (appropriately) Options.
And a couple things about the options.
1. When you select 'add ccss to sheets' or 'disable modified', it WILL stay checked across pages, from one day to the next.
2. The 'add due date' will NOT stay checked if you leave the site (this is so you don't accidently come back the next day and print off a bunch of sheets with the wrong due date).
3. The 'Options' page has an option to change the colors of printed sheets. This is NOT implimented on all sheets... yet. But more are being added. If you need a specific sheet converted, let me know.
Added the option to sort by grade (right now I've just got it open for k - 4, though more are coming shortly). Additionally almost all of the sheet have the closest standard listed next to them in blue.
Added an option to view the newest sheets uploaded here.
Added an option to link directly to a sheet. Next to the standard on a sheet is the share option. This will generate a direct link to the sheets as well as a couple embedding options.
Bunch of New Features and Sheets
Right now the site is going through an awkward transitional phase with a bunch of new features mixed in with the old stuff. Some of the new things to take a look at:
Create New Sheet
Any worksheet with the double arrows (») will have the option to generate a new worksheet. Right now there are only a few worksheets that have this option but new ones are being added daily as well as any new sheet that is created will have this option.
In combination with the 'create new sheet' option there is also the 'my class' option. On any worksheet that is created this will swap out the default names for students from your class.
On a lot of the new worksheets (and old ones that are being converted over) you may see the modified badge next to the difficulty level. This means in addition to the regular worksheet and answer key, a modified version of the worksheet will be created. These have changes such as:
Words to numbers ('one' changes to '1')
A new section has been added for interactive material. This material is ideal for use with a smart board or other interactive screen as it often requires dragging and dropping (ie. drag 6 circles to the box) or selecting an answer via touch. It is in the development phase so please let me know if any issues or bugs pop up.
Updated Create a Review
The 'Create-A-Review' has been updated to include more content and better usability. You can now hover over the question to display the answer, the full question, etc. Some of the new question types are 'shapes', 'angles', 'negative numbers', 'function machines' and 'multistep'.
