Other than like most, I found a need on our site for a quiz component found there was a few contenders. A couple, after researching deeper, found not really fitting the bill. But got it down to two contenders, Mad Blanks, and Joomla Quiz Deluxe. Tried Mad blanks, found it to be over complicated (& for a novice I couldn’t get my head around the instructions to get the thing to work, the support was lacking somewhat). So that let me with one choice, I saw the price tag, not bad was the first thought. But Once installed, it was a breeze to set up, along with the instructions on the website were, I thought were aimed at any level, so whichever level you are, no offence could be taken.
Then there was the support to setup either a custom layout or a particular problem I thought I had, which was as it turned out, was nothing wrong, just my members not passing the tests ;)
The different types of questions for me I found top class, as my members reported to me, that they found that it kept them on their toes, as the questions weren’t the same type (like fill in the blanks, or multiple choice).
I can’t stop singing the praises of this component. Haven’t found anything wrong with this, it is a well thought out component.
After saying all that, can I find anything wrong? Not really, the only niggling thing I found, was that the reporting modules, showed in “real names” not “members” or “usernames” whichever way you call it, (I think the ability to change this in the back end during setup a good idea for a wish list) After chatting to the support team, found that they can change something in the files. Again I find the level of support is something some of the bigger software companies can take a leaf from.
Would I recommend this to anyone else? No doubt about it, If I do another club site like my current one, I’d buy this straight away.
Well worth the money.
