After reading some favourable reviews, I started using Watu to help create an eLearning platform for the company that I work at. Compared to many other quiz plugins, it was clear that there were a wide range of options to customise quizzes as required.
Given how feature rich and easy it was to use, I upgraded to the full package, which included WatuPro, the Intelligence and Play modules to add some extra functionality. I'm glad that I did. The badge system and the reports are very useful, and the customer service is exceptional. All questions and requests were answered within hours of asking.
I had a script on this but using a plugin for WordPress is better
I am using this plugin and it works great. I have been having my courses on static pages with the marks stored in different pages. I had to move all those questions (About 800 questions) to watu.
After moving the questions, my readers poured their reviews saying that the website is now much easier to use. I really thank watu for this plugin.
I am just curious if the developer has any roots to Kenya. The word "Watu" is a swahili word which means people. The word "kiboko" that is used as the name of the developer is also a swahili word which means rhino.
A really nice plugin. After finding a small bug and reported it there was a fix and a new version of the plugin within 30 minutes. Five stars all the way!
This plugin has tons of options to customize your tests and exams.
What i really liked about it is that, when i created WordPress users, i could give them access through a WordPress student account in order for them to view their quizzes and their results.
Another thing that I can recommend this plugin for is the amazing user support. Quick responses and very helpful.
I needed a powerful plugin for quizzes used at a top level event. Tried a lot, but Watu was immediately the most easy to use, with a lot of functionalities and perfectly operational on smartphones (an important requirement for the project). Free version almost suits my need, but to go further, I bought Pro version and it worths every penny. Support is awesome, very effective and very kind. Desserves its five stars, even for the free version.
Using the plugin to create quizzes and have them sent to an email address. The developer was very helpful in adding a feature so that each quiz can go to a separate email address.
I'm a teacher and I was very happy with my first experiences with Watu. So I bought WatuPRO for professional usage: I love WatuPRO not only for his abundant functionality but also for two educational reasons:
The only thing I'm missing: A systematic written manual where all the huge functionality with their shortcodes, free add-ons, free bridges etc., can be looked up. (For the beginner some screencast to start with Watu(PRO) would be also very helpful.)
I was building a custom quiz in ASP before switching over to WordPress. I needed the ability to assign points to quizzes with multiple answers where I could give partial credit to certain questions. I also wanted to randomly assign question order and the order the answers appeared. While I am using the PRO version, I think for a basic quiz I would still give this app 5 stars. In a few hours I had the framework of a pretty advanced quiz. Support is phenomenal. Whether using basic or PRO the UI is easy to follow after 15 minutes of exploring how things are setup.
Thanks for a well-coded plugin. Watu works as stated in its description. Very little learning curve, even for the novice. This plugin does what it says and does it well.
I had two exams up and running in no time. Seems like you can even add media which is usually reserved for paid exam plugins. It's also easily translated and if you're not sure how to, the documentation is well written and easy to understand.
Reading through the support section you see that the developer offers quick and concise support for free users. Does he ever sleep?
I'll try this out for a bit longer and if all goes well, I'll surely upgrade even if it's just to support the developer for such an awesome free plugin. A hat tip to you!
