        • Shuffle Answers

          Be able to shuffle answers to decrease cheating between classes. I currently have to make 3 versions of every quiz. Being able to just click a "shuffle" or "randomize" button would be SO much easier, faster, and would decrease the repeated clutter in my folders. Please please please!

            • Have an easier way of adding images to questions that doesn't involve finding it on the internet and saving it to your computer.

              Being able to insert clipart from a bank of images or being able to insert directly from the internet without having to save the image first.

              • Update to include sound files ?

                I'm a music teacher, but I also ask you this question for language colleagues.
                Would it be possible to do an update to include sound files ? (mp3 or other sound file)

                • Sharable/ Collaborative Accounts

                  It would be nice to be able to share questions between teaching partners so that we can have the same questions on their own accounts without having to enter each item manually.

                    • Mark blanks as wrong answers in the scoresheet to force all students to give an answer

                      It would be nice if the scoresheet would read blanks as wrong answers. My very clever students realized that if they answer only the questions they are very sure of the answer and abstain from the questions they have no clue on, their chances of getting a high grade increases.

                        • It would be nice to have a way to change the point value of each question when scoring.

                          Each question needs to have the option to change the point value when scoring.

                          • "Next" Question Button

                            A "next" button for the mobile device, so after students have answered the question we can click "next" to move on to the next question rather than clicking the back arrow to get to the queue again. This takes up much needed time, and causes a lot on my peers to not use this application.

                            • Automatically show correct answer (optional)

                              Have the option to make the correct answer display AUTOMATICALLY after the check mark is clicked in the app, instead of requiring that users walk over to their computer/other device and click "reveal answer".

                              This is one extra step that causes a delay in the "game" and causes interest to wane (in addition to the having-to-click-"back" clunkiness after a question is completed).

                                  It would be helpful to add in which standard the question is addressing, then be able to filter by standard when it's time to work on report cards.

                                  • Dyslexia friendly font and background

                                    Could you change your font to comic sans or century gothic? Also would it be possible to have the background the live view questions and class list screen a pastel colour (pale yellow, pink or blue)?

                                    Dyslexia students struggle to read certain fonts on white backgrounds.

                                      • Grouping and moving questions

                                        Hi,
                                        congratulations for your app, it's exciting to use it in class. The children like it and it's great that you can check in the very moment the problems the children can have.
                                        As a teacher, I have a couple of suggestions:
                                        1. It would be great if you can move a group of questions, both in a folder or in the report, to another place. Now, at least I couldn't find a better way, you have to move one by one and it needs a lot of time.
                                        2. I would suggest to add the possibility to add questions…

                                        • weighted

                                          Weighted answers (half and full credit).

                                          This would be useful for me a second language teacher.

                                          Why I want this:
                                          - the job of my students is to demonstrate comprehension (and lack of comprehension). In this instance, they are clearly incentivized to do so (without the anxiety of doing so publicly).
                                          - has a better payoff than merely taking a wild guess.
                                          - it's very clear and direct communication to the instructor (which…
