Pencils Down 3.0 released
Elgebar Studios today released Pencils Down 3.0, the third major release of their Pencils Down test-creation software. Pencils Down allows teachers to create tests and quizzes for students quickly and painlessly. Version 3.0, the largest upgrade to Pencils Down since its release, allow users to add up to 26 choices on multiple choice questions, instead of the previous mandate of 4. It also supports "header text," which allows teachers to place needed info or fields before the main test. Pencils Down 3 also adds an "Informative Text" question type that allows teachers to place new instructions in the middle of their tests. The software also supports multiple question types, including the new "Informative Text" type, enables more than one correct answer for Multiple Choice, and a simpler user interface. It is available for $20.
