    Authoring quiz questions with Uniqurate

    By Jessica Gramp, on 9 July 2012

    Uniqurate is an easy to use QTI quiz question authoring tool that is currently being developed as part of a JISC funded project. IMS QTI is the Quiz and Test Interoperability standard, an XML based format that allows assessments to be shared between different e-assessment platforms.

    The Uniqurate editor comes with a  “friendly” mode and advanced modes (intermediate and expert). The “friendly” drag and drop mode is shown below.


    Some features include

    • compatible with popular Virtual Learning Environments (including Moodle via the Learning Tool Interoperability (LTI) plugin)
    • randomisation of questions and answers
    • multiple-part questions
    • regular expressions
    • compatible with Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox and Chrome
    • compatible with iPads, iPhones and Androids (without drag-and-drop functionality)
    • requires you to enter feedback for every answer (both correct answers and distractors)

    Uniqurate is being used by the following universities:

    • Harper Adams University College
    • Strathclyde University
    • Kingston University

    You can try Uniqurate for yourself here:

    The project team are looking for people to offer suggestions for new features and improvements. If you are interested in contributing to the project please contact the Learning Technology Research Group at Kingston University.
