The Test Item File is just one part of Prentice Hall’s comprehensive testing support service, which includes TestGen for Windows and Macintosh. TestGen: What is it? TestGen is a test generator program that lets you view and edit testbank questions, transfer them to tests, and then administer those tests on paper, on a local areanetwork, or over the Web. The program provides many options for organizing and displaying testbanks and tests. A built-in random number and text generator makes it ideal for creating multiple versions of questions and tests. Powerful search and sort functions let you easily locate questions and arrange them in the order you prefer. TestGen makes test creation easy and convenient with unclutteredside-by-side testbank and test windows, symbol palettes, expression templates, keyboard shortcuts, a graphing tool, variable text and numbers, and graphics. In addition, you can assign multiple descriptors to any question, including page references, topic, skill, objective, difficulty level, and answer explanations. TestGen provides several options for online testing—a simple export to WebCT andBlackboard formats, a conversion to HTML files, as well as a TestGen plug-in that displays the test in a Web browser and reports student results to the gradebook of Pearson’s CourseCompass course management system.
