ARI Quiz Lite is a simple Joomla! quiz component which provides ability of creating various tests to evaluate respondent's level of knowledge. It can help organizing quizzes on your Joomla! site.
* provides statistics of test results
* allows to group tests via categories
* provides 3 predefined types of questions
* question templates support
* supports CSS templates for quiz
* ability to create templates for result pages, emailing results, print versions
* export results to CSV
* ability to randomly select number of questions from question-pool or use them in queue
ARI Quiz Lite contains 4 modules:
Last result: shows N results of last passed tests
Top result: shows N best results of passed tests
User last result: shows N results of last passed tests for logged user
User top result: shows N best results of passed test for logged user
So it's not complicated, but It has all you need, so you don't need to study on it and it take few time to start with your tests.
And the support is very good!
I'm using it as integration of language classes.
I'm considering the full version. It seems good too.
Only on the question types, still missing the "Fill in the blank"
Such as: "In first aid, the mnemonic ABC stands for _____, _____, and _____."
So that learners can compile the fields in blank (or in option the ability to select a choise for each blank field by a drop-down list).
I hope ari team will consider it for the next release...
The support is good, and the component works, the documentation is a bit missing, but it's easy to figure out what's going on.
I would like to have more 'questionmodes' than the standardly provided, but so far it's quite good.
Thanks a lot Ari Soft.
The paid for version allows you to give detailed results to users whereas the Lite version just gives a summary of how many questions the quiz taker got right. But the good thing with the Lite version is that you can see how the thing works before you pay your money to get the full version.
I particularly liked the fact that when you select Menu Manager to add a new item, Ari Quiz is listed as one of the menu alternatives. Simple even I figured it out.
In addition, it's inabillity for the admin to delete tests taken by the user.
If the lite version is meant as some kind of demo for the full version, I think it does a poor job.
However, spending $75 for the full version seems fair to me, but I would like to try a demo first.
"ARI Quiz Lite" is a simple quiz extension which provides basic functions to create quizzes on Joomla! sites. "ARI Quiz Lite" and "ARI Quiz" are two different extensions. You can find the comparison table for these extensions on our site.
It is possible to try both extensions in action on our demo site.
But I want to mention an important fact. I use this component and 2 modules of ARI, and the fact is realy better then all extensions of ARI is their support. Now, if I need any extension, first of all I look throught Ari extensions.
I am sorry for my English!
If you have any problem with the component, report about it on our forum and we will try to help.
Thank you for your review. Unfortunately you haven't contacted us about this problem. It seems the component couldn't set writable permissions for "administrator/components/com_ariquizlite/cache" folder and all sub-folders. Contact us by email or on our forum for futher assistance.
The only issue I have is that I need the ability to either specify point values that have a decimal in them i.e 2.5 or for no value to be entered for the points and the points are calculated by dividing 100 by the total number of test questions.
Also, I wonder if there is a way to upgrade this to the full version without losing data?
Thank you for the review. We will take into account suggestion about score system. The component can be upgraded to pro version without losing data. If you have other questions, feel free to ask them on our forum or by email.
Then, I published my first quiz... and almost fell down of my chair. The system had placed the modules with the various quiz results without asking me, even on the front page. When you edit a Joomla website on-line, real-time, this stresses you because suddenly users can see something they're not supposed to see. OK, I quickly disabled the modules, the quiz, took a deep breath and went to it, to understand how Ari Quiz Lite functions. Again, not difficult at all. After one hour I had published the first quiz and it all looked and behaved as I wanted. One hour more and I had customized the templates for the web and for e-mails with seal, signatures, etc.
Well, now it all looks pretty good and impressive. Ari Quiz Lite is a great extension! Congratulations to its creators at Ari Soft. It does everything it should and does it well. I found a couple of small bugs (nothing horrendous), but I'm not sure yet whether they are Ari bugs or Joomla bugs (Joomla sometimes has a mind of its own).
Since this great extension is free, I feel I should contribute by offering my assistance for free to anyone working with Ari Quiz Lite and needing help. Are you stuck? Do you have a question? Feel free to mail me.
To see the end result in proper action, please visit www.ethology.eu. At the bottom of the front page, to the right, there's a demo test for our students with all functionalities, but visitors are welcome to take this test as well. For the real tests, you'd have to be a registered student.
If Ari Quiz Lite is this good, then one wonders how the full version must be!
Five stars to Ari Quiz Lite (and I'm known by my students for being stingy with grades).
If you have any problem with the extension, feel free to contact us via forum or by email and we will be glad to help resolve the problem.
