QuizFaber is designed to create multimedia HTML quizzes, no web design or scripting experience required.

Your quizzes can contain a wide range of multimedia objects. The full list is currently: Apple QuickTime format, Java Applet, Crescendo format, Flash Video (FLV) format, Generic, HTML Excel, Image, Real Audio/Media format, Shockware Flash, Sound, Video (generic), VLC media player format, Windows Media Player format.

There's support for several different question types. These include the standard multiple choice (pick a single right answer from several options), multiple answers (pick one or more right answer), true/ false, gap filling (enter the missing words in a sentence or paragraph), matching words (choose an entry from one list, and a matching entry from another) and freeform (type text in a box).

QuizFaber can also be extended with custom modules, to create new question types. Bundled examples include Jigsaw (shuffle tiles to recreate an original picture), Crossword (fill in a crossword), Numerical (enter a number in a box) and Hotspot (click in a defined area of a picture). If you've a little knowledge of HTML and JavaScript then you may be able to use these to build new question types of your own.

Quizzes are extremely configurable. Questions may be presented one at a time, or all on one page. Custom sounds can be played for right/ wrong answers. You might set timeouts for individual questions, and/ or the quiz as a whole. There are ways to adjust quiz navigation, background colours, images and more.

By default quizzes are anonymous, but you can also assign them to individual students, save the results in various ways (including to cloud storage or your own web server), and analyze the performance of your students over time.

QuizFaber's interface isn't always intuitive or straightforward. There's no real-time WYSIWYG preview of the quiz (you must manually build and run it). Even though we were supposed to be generating an English language quiz, the prompt for one feature appeared to be in Italian, and the final "Quit" button didn't close our browser window.

For all that, there's a vast amount of power here, certainly more than we'd expect in a free application. If you need this kind of tool then it's worth a try, just be prepared to spend a while fixing any issues and getting everything working correctly.
