Quizbank/List of quizzes
< Quizbank
- The first column shows the number of questions in the quiz. A permalink to a copy of the quiz is provided in the second column.
This list is slightly out of date. As of 11/7/15 Quizbank contained 84 quizzes and 766 questions. If one professor could do this in 3 years while teaching 3 classes per semester, plus summer school, 10 professors could easily write 10,000 questions in 5 years. Software that renders these quizzes into wikitext has been written, but needs major revisions before it becomes user friendly.
