Qwizcards lets you easily create online quizzes and flashcard decks. Examples are shown here.
An interactive what-you-see-is what-you-get (WYSIWYG) “wizard” can guide you through the process. Try the online demo. In addition, in WordPress you can edit the shortcodes the wizard creates, or enter them yourself. The online demo also lets you save, publish, and share any quiz or flashcard deck – all free!
New, November 2017: “Mix-and-match” questions or cards from quizzes and decks saved as “datasets”. See What’s new.

[fx] No. The spindle fibers pull the chromosomes to each side of the dividing cell
[f*] Very good!
[q] To what structure in this eukaryote cell is the number 2 pointing?
[c*] The cytoplasm
[c] The membrane
[c] The nucleus

[f] No, the membrane is the outside surface of the cell.
[f] No, the nucleus – a fairly large, round body near the center of eukaryote cells – holds genetic information.
[f] No, ribosomes use messenger RNA to create proteins.

[q] In the diagram, the number 3 is pointing to
[c*] channel protein
[a] Yes – this protein forms a pore that allows molecules to cross the membrane
[!!!][c*] ion channel; ion pump; ion transporter; transporter
[f] Yes, very good; this could be a protein that forms an active transport channel, or it could form a passive channel.
[c*] pore; membrane pore
[f] Yes, this is a protein that forms a channel through the membrane
[c*] channel; membrane channel;
[f] Yes, this is a protein that allows molecules to cross the membrane
[c] transmembrane protein
[f] While this is a transmembrane protein, what purpose does it serve?
[f] While this is a protein, it is a particular kind that allows molecules to cross the membrane
[f] No, this is a kind of membrane protein that allows molecules to cross the membrane[/!!!]
[q] Who was the Austrian monk who discovered many of the principles of modern genetics?
[c] Mendel; Menten; Menzies; van Leeuwenhoek; Darwin; Pasteur
[a] The correct response is “Mendel”.
[q] Define “gene”
[a] The unit of heredity.
[q] Define “heredity.”
[a] The passing of traits from parent to offspring.
You create quizzes and flashcard decks by including “shortcodes” in your page or post. For example, a quiz is enclosed in [
qwiz] … [
/qwiz] shortcode pairs; each question begins with a [q]. The quickstart guides for quizzes and flashcards will let you get started.
