Important Note
: Game play is limited to only 10 questions at a time. If you enter more then 10 questions they will be randomly displayed throughout the game play experience. The only way to make sure all of your questions are displayed in each game is to limit your test to 10 questions. The Multiple Choice Test (which is not a game, but is listed under the game page) will display all of your questions in any given test.

Please do not allow your students access to your login information. Game creation is restricted to educators and schools officials only! This helps prevent erroneous information from being submitted to the site.

Control Panel

Edit Profile: allows you to add your name, state, country, city, address, grade level and subject taught. In order for your students to use the find "Teacher Name" feature you must edit your profile and add your name to it.

Log Out: this removes access to your control panel from the computer you are on. This prevents other people from gaining access to your tests and personal information.

Creating Tests: each test created must have the following information:

Title: should be a few words detailing what the test is about. Description: provides a basic overview of the content contained within the test (max 255 characters).

Subject: select the subject your test falls under. If you created a profile, this field will be automatically created. You can change it by clicking on it. If your subject is not there, please use "Other". If you are testing the site, please use "Demo".

Subtopic and Topic: try to select the best choice that describes your test. If it doesn't fit in one please select "Other".

State: select the location where you teach. Outside the US use NO STATE (Non-USA)

Grade: select the level this test was created for.

Question Text: you must enter your question here.

Answers: you must write text in one answer box. Use the radio button to select the correct answer.

When entering answers, avoid using phrases such as "none of the above" or "all of the above" since the answer choices are randomized. This means that just because you enter an answer in Answer #4 doesn't mean it will be displayed there in the game. Try using "none of the choices" or "all choices" instead.

Number of Test Questions: you can enter a minium of 10 up to a maximum of 20 questions per test. Regardless of the number of questions entered, each game will only display 10 random questions in a random order from your test per game play. This way if a user refreshes a game they will not see the same questions every time.

Banned Characters: certain special characters cannot be displayed since it causes errors in the database. These characters are: " < > & { } [ ] just to name a few.

You must hit "Save Test" at the bottom of the page to save your test. If you hit the back button on your browser, all your information entered will be lost!

I leave you with a few comments from teachers across the world about my site.

"I wanted to let you know that my kids love this site! I have always used another site in the past. I was so thrilled to discover teachers were able to make their own games. Thank you!!! My kids actually play at home when they get "bored"! That is awesome when they could be playing any computer game." ~ S. O.

"I discovered your site yesterday and I really enjoyed using your site in my classroom today. The students were very engaged. I can see your site being a huge benefit to many teachers." ~ S.A.
