Test Author's Toolbox (TAT) logo

All of our computer-based assessments are created with Test Author's Toolbox, or TAT.  This easy-to-use software is available to you to edit any of our tests, or to create your own.  With TAT, you can:

Build Tests

Example of a hot spot question in construction mode, where a student is to click the correct answer (the colored boxes aren't seen by the student).With TAT, creating tests couldn't be easier. First, select the desired question type from the following choices:

  • multiple choice
  • multiple-multiple choice (click all that apply)
  • true/false
  • fill-in-the-blank
  • hotspot

Next, enter questions, graphics, sounds, and links to outside programs (like the calculator for math-based questions).  Help screens and general information screens may also be added to guide students through the test material.

Once you've created all of your questions, you can customize the entire test by:

  • preventing students from skipping over questions
  • randomizing the order in which the questions are delivered
  • designating a time frame for completion
  • allowing the test to adapt to the test taker
  • and more

Administer Tests

Once your tests have been developed, you can determine who takes a test and the number of times a test can be taken. You can also prevent unauthorized access to a test. Student names are entered into a list and each student is assigned a password.

Deliver Tests

Use TAT to deliver tests to a whole classroom over a network or to individual students at their computers. Students navigate through the test one question at a time. Based on the options chosen by the instructor, students can view correct answers after answering the question, receive help before or after the question, and receive information for further study based on the results of the test.

Track Results

View the results of tests in Tracker.Tests are scored as students take them based on each question's scoring weight. Test results are automatically entered into Tracker. Results can be sorted by last name, first name, highest scores to lowest scores, and objectives. Once results are in Tracker, they can be viewed, exported, or printed.

Instructors can even view how students answered each question and how long it took them answer.
