Test Builder Program Instructions. IBM Version.
Patton, Jan; Steffee, John
This document provides printed instructions for teachers to use with an IBM-compatible microcomputer to construct tests and then have the computer give the tests, grade them, and print the test results. Computerized tests constructed in this way may contain true-false questions, multiple-choice questions, or a combination of both. The questions are displayed in random order. Questions can be modified, added, and deleted from other test banks to create other tests; paper copies of the tests, the test keys, and the answer sheets may be printed. The printed instructions are divided into three parts: an overview that covers the scope of the test builder program; loading procedures for various types and numbers of disk drives; and instructions for working with specific parts of the test builder program.
