Creating an Ultimate Quiz is a cinch when studying for any type of cumulative testing, such as semester, mid-terms, or final exams.

Just Logical is a unique multiple choice only quizzing system that supplies the learner with instant feedback. It is designed to help students study specific skill areas while giving positive, immediate feedback. These areas include everything from adverbs and prepositional phrases to multiplication and map skills.
When taking JL quizzes, the user continues to select responses to each question until they get the correct answer. In doing so, they are able to apply the same logic on the next question, reinforcing the same skill. Each Just Logical quiz can measure up to three skill sets at a time, determined by the person creating the quiz.
There are sample Just Logical quizzes located on the Home Page of Cram Stoppers.
The text edit feature supports studying all foreign languages plus enabling the user to create quizzes using features such as bold, italics, underline, picture embedding, and various font sizes and types.
