The Test Factory is a desktop application that creates multiple choice tests that students may perform in a computer network setting or on a single station computer. In the network version a single server computer may serve a Test Factory file to multiple students on networked computers. When students complete their test the score data is returned to the server and stored in a Test Factory file. In single station version a student may double click a Test Factory file, perform the test, and save his or her score in the Test Factory file. The Test Factory Question Inspector can configure test to implement Apple's Speech Manager to speak questions. You may also configure a test to send score data directly to a printer when a student has completed his or her test. You may also configure a test to randomize question order. Every time a student takes a test the questions will be shuffled in a random order. A teacher or test author may export his or her test in Rich Text Format, HTML (form), or PDF format. The Test Factory implements drag and drop picture files directly into the Question Inspector. Each question may contain any number of pictures. After an test author has completed his or her test, and multiple students have performed and submitted their test, test data may be measured and evaluated. The Test Factory automatically calculates the mean score, minimum score, maximum score, deviations from the mean, a percentile rank for each student, the standard deviation, Kuder-Richardson 20 Formula, item discriminiation, and item difficulty.
