It works as promised. Although, the support is really good. I emailed Christopher a few times to do some custom work for me and he responded within minutes, got the extra work done overnight. He is very reliable and I highly recommend the extension.

That is necessary for me for my site. The SimpleQuiz component simple in use also has a set of functions. This best expansion which I have found in the Internet! I thank the author and I hope for further development of expansion. I wish you successes!

This quiz module is simple yet powerfull. It is just what I needed for my simple website. Every problem I encountered was resolved immediately by the author. Questions are answered promptly and updates are send without delay. This extension is worth every penny!

I have always judged a product by the quality of the after-sales service. The developer has always responded to my queries in double-quick time. This is important as I find the documentation a bit sketchy, but hopefully it will be improved to match the quality of the programme and the back-up service.

This quiz is really the best solution if you need one for Joomla! With the html editor you can put in everything you want and style it the way you want.
Christopher is besides a very nice and honest guy also a marvellous programmer cause I needed some customization 'under the hood' for my specific situation and he made it all for a little fee and it works exactly how I wanted it!

I have created literally hundreds of esl comprehension quizzes on three sites using this extension. The ability to add free html into the header of each quiz gives very useful flexibility. My students and other visitors love the quizzes, so thanks to Mr Mavros for making them easy to create. On another note, I have always found his support to be unbelievably good, especially considering the low cost of his extensions.

Hi there,
I have to say that for some times I was looking for a quiz application that could generate some swf file in order to make them available for my students through an application which I have programmed but I could not find the right one for many reasons. Anyway, after a long and thorough search I did a search for a cms component and I came across Simple Quiz. At first I was not expecting much from a simple component. So I contacted the author and whoa as soon as I got it installed on a remote server, did some test and bingo this was the one I wanted. Man, what a joy. Everything worked perfectly as expected. The support is fast, efficient and brilliant as I needed few things to be modified so it was done in real time. Don't be fooled by some kinds of other components or any application with a big name for indeed this one might be called Simple yet it does what is says. Thanks a lot for this great tool.

This is great component and Christophers support is really, really excellent. I had a request regarding the [question] tag in the complete text function. Within 30 minutes Christopher delivered a customized version. Thanks again.

Really great component, did exactly what I needed. Is a really easy to configure and to use extension to create quizzes with scored questions, answers depending on the grade and also very usefull to customize through css.

I must emphathize the support given by the developer is outstanding, really quick and personalized, not just a link to a forum like most extensions.

It was worth every dolar.

Totally recommended.

Purchased Simple Quiz last week with hopes of using it to score surveys with the intent of delivering an average of the questions answered. Note: this was not an original feature but after contacting Chris he quickly implemented the feature. Thanks so much Chris. Also I had a few issues setting it up and Chris was able to quickly resolve the issues. Again a big thanks and Simple Quiz is ideal for our purposes.

Christopher has done a lot of work to Simple Quiz since I bought it 6 months ago. We had one or two issues at first, but Christopher has been incredibly quick to reply and always helpful.

Very happy with the component - and extremely happy with the support. If I have one suggestion for improvement (and to save Christopher a heap of time!) that is to provide some instruction documentation. It would save dummies like me from pestering him!

Do not let the name put you off - it is a simple to use component for a quiz, however, it is an extremely versatile and powerful tool.
Christophers support has been fast and fantastic.

Thank you for this low cost effective solution. Support was extremely helpful and responsive. I was very happy with this addition to my Joomla website adding a survey function that delivered responses based on tabulation. This extension does exactly what I needed it to do. I highly recommend it.

I am a fairly advanced Joomla user, but was looking for a way to build an online school without the complications of a LMS. Instead, I figured out how to modify the forum, add an upload file feature AND THEN add a SIMPLE QUIZ module that I could use for different groups during their learning process. This component SEALED IT for me.

It took me all of 30 minutes after buying, purchasing and installing to get a short demo up for my students. SIMPLE is what I needed, and SIMPLE is what I got. Period. Best of all, it "self grades."

I want to thank you for such a wonderful, hassle free job. I only have two things I would suggest... and this is based on my limited knowledge of Joomla:

1. Enable further customization with user groups. I wasn't able to select the specific groups I've created in Joomla 1.7. It could just be "ME" and my limited understanding of how this works. That's why I still gave this component the highest possible rating.

2. The layout in my admin menu was jumbled together. So, I couldn't really see the instructions for the options available to me. But again, I might have some off settings in my browser or something. I was STILL ABLE to figure out what was going on though because of the NEAT ADDITION of inserting the sample text.

GREAT JOB! I'm sure I will purchase more extensions from this company in the future. Thank you for KEEPING IT SIMPLE... AND keeping your costs beyond reasonable. Great extension....
Owner's reply

Hello. Thank you for this great review.
I would be happy to help you with the issues you have in the Question View, as I'm aware of that problem, but haven't been able to reproduce until now.

Thank you also for the suggestion about the user-groups. You are right, that is not implemented as SimpleQuiz was originally for 1.5, not including the new ACL features.

Please contact me at and I'll be happy to help you further on.

Thank you again.

The nicest thing about SimpleQuiz is that it is so easy. Within 30 minutes I had a quiz ready to go that included images, video and a variety of question options. The best part is being able to insert a sample question and answer right into your quiz and simply replace it with your own text. I tried two other Quiz components and was frustrated with either no documentation or a quiz far too complex for my needs. If you want to get a quiz up and running quickly, this is the component for you.

I am a long time user of BF Quiz, however I was under the gun to bring a project on-line and my installation of BF Quiz was not working. The questions I had devloped were to the client's liking and they expected a quiz component to be an integral part of the website. I spent some time trying to resolve the issues with this component, but could not get it to present in a reliable manner.

I did a search of other quiz components and basically did not like what I saw. They were either too expensive, unnecessarily complicated or not functional for my needs.

I ran across SimpleQuiz and liked what I initially saw. I was very surprised and impressed that this component did more than provide a replacement for the other troublesome component.

SimpleQuiz is more than simple, it provides easy to implement functionality in presenting quizzes that I never had before. It is a very powerful and complete component at an affordable price. I was able to port the quizzes I had prepared and present them using SimpleQuiz. The client was very pleased.
