Problem-Attic is a great place to find released test questions for Math, Social Studies, Science, or English Language Arts. It is easy and fast to use. Oh yah! It's FREE!
VALLEJO, Calif. – Oct. 1, 2012 – Today EducAide Software put tens of thousands of high-quality questions for personalizing learning at the fingertips of teachers around the country, for free, with the launch of Problem-Attic. More than an item bank, Problem-Attic allows teachers to find questions by topic, select them individually and format them using Problem-Attic’s online tools to create and output tests, quizzes, worksheets, flash cards, overheads and problem-of-the-day calendars with ease.
My first impression was OK. But then I began playing with it a bit. I loved that the questions were not all worded the same. Sounds like a little thing, but how many of your kids will only answer a question if it looks exactly the same as what they had seen in class. How great to quickly see how the same question is worded a bunch of different ways! How great to not have to come up with them myself!
But what really impressed me was the Multi-Step Problems. These are great for pushing your kids towards the Mathematical Practices we have all been striving for. I loved that I could work through some problems with them and still have questions to give my students so they could do the problem solving on their own.
I have also been using Problem-Attic for my final exam prep. Please feel free to take a look. I love that the questions download into a presentation or a worksheet. It makes it so easy to use with my class set of clickers.
I hope this resource makes your life easier. Please let me know if you have questions.
