QuizPlease is shareware produced by MoneyTree Software Company. There are two different programs that make up QuizPlease. The first program runs on the Instructor's computer and allows instructors to create quizzes and to publish them to web pages. You can download a copy of this program and try it out. To register your copy costs $149. The second program runs on a server. It keeps track of student scores. The server program costs $199. You can try the Instructor part without needing to use the server part.

these steps to create a quiz
Enter an abbreviation for the quiz,
no more than 8 characters, only letters and numbers 0-9 may be used.
Note that a folder will be created under the QuizPlease directory with
the name you type in. Under that folder, another folder will be created
called images. The images folder stores all of the images and multimedia
files for the quiz.
Click on the Info. tab, and enter in the information about the quiz. QuizPlease assumes you are creating a Tutorial type of quiz, but you may select another type. Many of these fields are optional; if you don't fill them in, your quiz in Netscape will not display the information. Some fields (like the passing score field) must be entered if you select a the type of quiz where a score will be generated.
Click on the Quest. tab (the question bank). The first question will be displayed. Fill in the fields for this question. If you want to enter another question, click on the New icon on the QuizPlease toolbar at the top of the screen. When entering a new question, you must save it by clicking on the Save icon. Note that all of the other Toolbar items and the menu bar items (except Edit) are not visible until you save the question.
After entering a few questions, click on the Publish tab. You may now click on the Create a Quiz button (on the Publish page) to create a quiz for the information you have entered. If you have not registered QuizPlease, you will be able to create a quiz with only 3 questions. You may, however, have as many quizzes as you want, with up to 32,000 questions in the question bank. This is the only limitation of the unregistered version. Once the quiz has been created, you may view it in Netscape by clicking on the View Quiz button. (note: Netscape 3 or later required) You may have to tell QuizPlease where your Netscape program is located. This is done by selecting Tools and then Options.
The quiz you just viewed is located under your QuizPlease folder. For example, if you named your quiz history, then the quiz is: c:\qp972\history\history.htm The images and multimedia files are located here: c:\qp972\history\images .
If you want to copy the quiz to a floppy (which will work just fine) make a folder called a:\images on the floppy, copy all images to that directory, and then copy c:\qp972\history\ history.htm to: a:\history.htm.
While in Netscape, a student may take
the test by simply selecting File | Open a:\history.htm and pressing
