Hot Potatoes Easily Create Interactive Quizes and Assignments

Posted in Labels:

Hot Potatoes is another awesome tool that allows teachers to create interactive quizes. I have aready talked about this website two years ago in a post here but I am reviewing it again because there has been some interesting updates recently.


Hot Potatoes requires a download. You will be able to find the download file you need for your computer. It supports Windows, Mac, and Lunix. If you use Windows like me then look for the version 6.3 and the Java version 6.1. You are already granted license to download so do not worry about privacy issues. Just remember that when you first start up Hot Potatoes, it will ask you for your user name. This is stored on your computer and will be used to identify you as the author of any work you do on Hot Potatoes. So you need to make sure to provide a user name before you start uinsg any of its features.

The Hot Potatoes suite includes six applications that will enable you to do the following:

  1. Create interactive multiple-choice exercises
  2. Create short-answer or crossword taska
  3. Make jambled- sentences exersices
  4. Create  matching/ordering and gap-fill exercies

Hot Potatoes is also a freeware which means that you can use it for other legal purposes and projects.
