The Infinite Test Bank


Our smart test generator randomly generates values for problems and calculates the correct answers—and the wrong answers, too! You can easily make multiple versions of the same test with different values for the numerical data in each problem. Make-up tests are a breeze! The test generator even automatically prints answer keys for each variation of your test. Save your customized tests online for next period or next year.

Versatile and easy!

  • Choose sections of the text to include.
  • Choose the number of questions from each section
  • Build multiple versions of the same test
