Quiz plugin for educational purposes (7 posts)

    Hello,
    I am an English teacher and a fan of WP.
    I am trying to put together a WP site for my colleagues and myself to post content and create exams and quizzes.
    I've spent quite some time looking for a WP plugin to create quizzes, but there seems to be only one, WbQuiz. As mentioned here, WbQuiz is not very user friendly--some of my colleagues would not be able to use it.
    As far as I know, there is only this posting by Consolenauts addressing the issue of WP lacking a plugin to create quizzes.
    My questions are the following:
    Are there any WP plugins to create quizzes that I am missing?
    Are there any alternatives? I've created quizzes using Hotpotatoes, but I was unable to embed them in WP.
    Is there any hope that someone will create/release any plugins for this purpose any time soon?
    Is there something else I can do besides posting my concern on this forum?
    Thank you very much for any help or advice on this subject.
    NB: Other posts/sites I have checked, but have not solved my problem are:

    I found a solution.
    I am creating my quizzes using Hotpotatoes (export the quiz as an html file) and then embedding them in WordPress using the plugin Embedit plugin.
    You need to create a custom field, but it is a very simple procedure (explain on the Embedit site).
    Yet, it would be good if someone could come up with a WP plugin designed to create quizzes and exams.

    I would love a plugin for this too.

    I thought I'd have some luck with this one, but no such luck. Maybe it needs to be tweaked: http://funbasedlearning.com/tools/quizMaker/default.htm

    This is not a WordPress plugin, but it is up and running on my site, very user friendly too: http://www.urquiz.co.uk/iquiz/
