A-Z of Assessment Methods - University of Reading

The University of Reading have produced this useful document: 

An A-Z of Assessment Methods 

Assessment tools - Adobe Captivate

Adobe Captivate

Popular authoring platform - can create stand-alone or SCORM tutorials and quizzes. Option to publish as both swf and HTML5, and uses Flash if available (currently better quality/performance than HTML5). It has some scripting capabilities but is not as powerful as Flash. Expensive, and not part of Adobe Creative Cloud.

Assessment tools - Articulate Storyline

Articulate Storyline

Popular authoring tool - competitor to Adobe Captivate.

Comparison Storyline v Captivate

Assessment tools - iSpring

iSpring Suite

Very easy to use software which creates mobile-friendly quizzes (it is also a great tool for creating HTML5 versions of PowerPoint presentations). Not free, but much cheaper than Captivate and Articulate, and much easier for academics to use.
