Teachers and students are raving about Quia...

"We are a school which has struggled badly in the past to pass our State-mandated Standards of Learning tests. Last year, we FINALLY passed, for the first time. I am convinced the number one reason we did was because of QUIA."
David Hillgrove, history teacher
Richmond, Virginia, U.S.A.


"The quiz creator is a life saver and the ability to import Excel lists and instantly create games is incredible. I love the site and I will subscribe again. Grades have greatly improved, especially by giving students instant feedback on their exams."
Dean Gonzalez, high school IT teacher
Miami, Florida, U.S.A.


"I have been using Quia for about 3 years now and my students really love it — and so do I!! I especially want to thank you for the new improved class rosters — it is great to be able to look at individual classes and I also appreciate being able to export the marks to Excel and then to my mark book. Many thanks for making learning fun and for allowing the feedback to quizzes and homeworks!"
Karen Jones, teacher
Cardiff, United Kingdom


"I think Quia has increased students' grades. The students can take quiz sessions as often as they like in preparation for a test, while I only grade the first one I receive to ensure that they cannot cheat. I also allow no feedback until test time arrives and the date for getting assignments in has passed. For study purposes, they can have all the feedback they want.... I love Quia, and we are currently looking at Quia for the whole school."
Ken Hackman, high school zoology teacher
Madison, Mississippi, U.S.A.


"Every time I renew my subscription, there are added and improved features. Your site allows me to create activities that are directly aligned with my text book. Thank you so much for providing a valuable teaching tool at such an economical price."
Twyla Gerdes, middle school teacher
Omaha, Nebraska, U.S.A.


"Students like doing Quia exercises and quizzes online and say it improves their retention of words. I like the feature that allows me to grade by question and make students' names anonymous — I'm much more objective with the answers."
High school German teacher
Iowa, U.S.A.


"I used to have trouble in algebra, holding out a C+ average for quite some time. With Quia, I have pulled up my average to a solid A-."
8th grade student
Maryland, U.S.A.


"I use Quia to create games for students to use as a study tool, and for surveys. Thanks to Quia, students are putting more time in studying, both with the games I create/use and the paper study guides they are given. Once they get rolling with a game they continue with the study materials distributed in class. Parents have noticed a change in study habits and motivation as well."
Elizabeth Bogardus, 6th grade English and social studies teacher
Walpole, Massachusetts, U.S.A.


"My students' grades have improved and the mainstream (classroom teachers) are thrilled. I am able to design material that directly correlates to the classroom content material. This allows students to practice with the information that they are required to know for assessments."
Renee Zebersky, special education teacher, grades 1-6
Oceanside, New York, U.S.A.


"Instant feedback for students is great, saves time for me the teacher in grading. Love being able to upload images and simultaneously creating activities that students can use from home. It is great addition for any class."
Rachael Jaster, art and computer instructor, grades 7-12
Nicollet, Minnesota, U.S.A.


"I use Quia to create games to help my students learn and quizzes to assess their progress. Students' performance in class has improved, especially in the area of grammar and mechanics."
7th grade teacher
Maine, U.S.A.


"I use Quia as a foundational component in my instruction. I input information on a chapter by chapter basis and develop games related to the chapters. The students love it."
Errol A. Jones, special education teacher, grades 9-12
Houston, Texas, U.S.A.


"I am a teacher and a user of Quia for the past 3 years. I teach in Henrico County, VA which is in our third year of a one to one technology initiative. I have been an advocate of your program for years.... The reason I'm writing is that I just logged in for the first time in a week and NOW I CAN IMPORT QUESTIONS from other quizzes and activities! I really really love you guys for adding the question import feature! Keep adding features that make my life as a teacher easier, and you guys will dominate this industry!!"
Jeff Hall, teacher
Richmond, Virginia, U.S.A.


"Quia makes it so that I don't have to spend a bunch of time mindlessly marking exams. I appreciate this utility because it frees me up to do other things. Plus, I can keep my student records online (and reduce my paper load). I now use Quia to run ALL of my exams."
Rick Delainey, history teacher, grades 10-12
Saskatchewan, Canada


"Online grading of quizzes and tabulation of surveys is wonderful! Being able to go back into a quiz, review it, and change the grade if necessary is also a very nice feature. I also love all the different formats available for the activities — they keep students' attention. With Quia, I love that I can tailor the activities to the exact needs of my students."
Math teacher, grades 7 and 8
Wisconsin, U.S.A.


"As a motivational tool Quia is priceless. I have seen significant progress in some pupils who usually struggle to make sense of the subject. But let's not forget that one can also create exacting activities for the most advanced students (eg my sites on French politics and advanced French vocabulary).... One of the best things about Quia is that you can leave students to access and practise the activities at home in their own time — and it seems to be appreciated by parents when you can mention the website activities you have created! Thanks to Quia, even mediocre computer-users like myself can appear to be clever!"
John Allinson, secondary school teacher
Reading, Berkshire, United Kingdom


"My students who use Quia really show great improvement in class. Because they already know the vocabulary they are able to improve in speaking much faster. It is also great for remediation and enrichment without me having to do a great deal extra."
Jodi Toole, Spanish teacher
Moss Point, Mississippi, U.S.A.


"I have had good feedback from students; one just recently wrote to say, "Thanks for moving to Quia; I love that place." All in all, yours is the best site I've seen and I am recommending it to my peers."
Linda Robinson, teacher of Latin, literature, and philosophy
Longville, Louisiana, U.S.A.


"My students' grades have significantly improved now that they can play games that enable them to review and practice language grammar and vocabulary on their own."
Deborah Lemon, college Spanish teacher
Fremont, California, U.S.A.


"Students' test grades are greatly improved by using the games to study for their tests."
Melissa Lybyer, junior high social studies teacher
Mansfield, Arkansas, U.S.A.


"I wanted to thank you for being so responsive to the needs and suggestions of your users. I had written before about the small size of the font on several activities; you replied that others had also submitted similar comments and that you were looking into making improvements. You clearly followed through and the results are terrific. Your constant attention to improving the interfaces and capitalizing on the benefits of new technologies is greatly appreciated, not only by instructors such as myself, but more importantly, by our students. Keep up the great work!!"
High school Latin teacher
South Carolina, U.S.A.


"Quia has made me more aware of what I am learning and helps me feel more confident about my tests and quizzes. You have a great site going and I hope that I can use this site all the time! It is a great study tool for all my classes and I hope it will be my main source of studying!!!"
9th grade student
Phoenix, Arizona, U.S.A.


"Quia saves me a lot of time by grading all of the quizzes. Also, the customer support is fantastic. I accidentally deleted a quiz session (final exam) and the Quia staff restored it for me."
High school technology teacher
Texas, U.S.A.


"I use Quia as a quiz tool for professors who want an alternate, easy, user-friendly, fast and reliable option to quizzing. i.e. getting away from the conventional way of distributing the quiz, the time constraint, the time spent grading, and all the factors that come into play. By using Quia, both professor and students have 24/7 access to the quiz, as well as grades, without much effort by the professor."
Mauricio Cadavid, university student and distance learning assistant
Rancho Cucamonga, California, U.S.A.


"I believe that the review games help the students greatly.... Just keep up the good work! I am probably your best salesperson, people in the county love it so much that I have an online class to teach people how to use it!"
History teacher
Glen Allen, Virginia, U.S.A.


"Quia has helped students to improve their self-discipline and independence in studying the material. I even have witnessed marked improvement in some students' scores after using Quia."
Maureen Burns Coutu, high school Spanish teacher
Cumberland, Rhode Island, U.S.A.


"I like all of Quia and have convinced my foreign language colleagues to use it in two different schools. I have used it myself for 5 or 6 years, and it has positively affected the grades of the students who use it."
French teacher
Denver, Colorado, U.S.A.


"Quia is marvelous! My son is high-functioning with autism. He is in collaborative classes. This semester he earned 5 As and one B on his report card. Quia is invaluable to us."
Parent
Virginia, U.S.A.


"Quia has been a smashing success with my academically at-risk students. I was just working on some new activities for the Spring semester and tried the new Flash additions. Wow! Keep up the good work. My kids will be so excited. A+++"
Carol Butchko, high school reading teacher
O'Fallon, Illinois, U.S.A.


"Quia is tremendously effective. My students have improved at least 75% of their skills in computer software knowledge. Thanks so much for this wonderful site! My hard copy tests have been abandoned and Quia is in!"
C.D. Fuentes, college computer teacher
Maple Heights, Ohio, U.S.A.


"Using Quia makes it less stressful for the students. They are able to see their grade upon completion and I am able to put the grade in the grade book immediately."
Elizabeth Atwood, 9th grade math and computer teacher
Houston, Texas, U.S.A.


"I have used Quia to give tests and quizzes and classroom activities now for almost three years. I enjoy it and would not do without it. It has saved me a massive amount of time."
Bruce Moore, middle school teacher
York, Nebraska, U.S.A.


"I'm a big fan and a heavy user now for three years. Your site just keeps getting better! Students' favorites are: (1) learning games which they use to review material (they love the "game" aspect of them); (2) having part or all of their quizzes "graded instantly" so they get immediate feedback on "how they did" and specific information on which questions they got wrong and what the correct answers are; and (3) having their own "grade book" that records all their grades and stores copies of their quizzes so they can go back over them before semester exams, etc. ALL of my students like these features, but they are especially cherished by those with ADD, learning disabilities, and those who are less capable: they LOVE that they can play the games over and over at home without anyone keeping track or seeing that it took them 17 tries before they got a good score."
Jane O'Brien
teacher


"I use the quiz feature often! How wonderful to have the students immediately get their grades. How wonderful to not have to correct 72 quizzes each time a couple of classes take a quiz! ... Quia has improved the grades of my students, especially those who are kinesthetic learners. They get a real sense of accomplishment when succeeding at the matching / word search / columns / hangman / jumbled words etc."
Sharon Lee Youngs, teacher, grades 6-8
Fairview, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.


"Quia has really helped my students improve their grades. Kids today are so computer oriented that they seem to learn material better and are more willing to work on the computer than in older, more traditional ways."
High school Spanish teacher
Tulsa, Oklahoma, U.S.A.


"I believe that those students who are using Quia activities to study have greatly improved their grades. Many have commented that this is so."
Alice DeHart, high school Spanish teacher
Fishers, Indiana, U.S.A.


"Your site is fantastic; it has really added some much-needed variety to my instruction. I love the improved flash hangman and the new card faces for concentration. I hope you continue to add more activities and improved graphics."
Christian Poulin, middle school teacher
Augusta, Maine, U.S.A.


"Quia is so wonderful! It gives my students a fun way to practice and master skills, helping them to truly learn the material and effectively prepare for tests. My students come to me requesting a quiz on certain material or a particular game for a unit, and I'm able to quickly produce a study tool that fits their needs and my time schedule! THANKS!"
Sarah Gorman, 8th grade English teacher
Little Rock, Arkansas, U.S.A.


"I have been putting ALL my paper and pencil assignments on Quia, so that students do almost everything on-line. This reduces the paper flow in my classroom, provides instant feedback to students and reduces time required in class or at home to grade worksheets!"
Barry K. Thomas, teacher
Temecula, California, U.S.A.


"Quia is a powerful tool to help students learn and practice new concepts and vocabulary. I've told everyone I know about it! (I wish I were getting a commission — I'd be rich!) Keep up the wonderful work. Quia is the best value around!"
Pat Prosser, junior high, high school, and adult Spanish teacher
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, U.S.A.


"My son has a learning disability and has a very difficult time studying for tests using conventional means (text books, notes, etc.). The Quia game formats engage him. He can't help but learn!"
Parent
Oak Ridge, Tennessee, U.S.A.


"I just wanted to pass along a message of thanks. Your product has helped me out immensely. I am constantly finding new ways to apply Quia's robust functionality in my work. It's nice to see such a powerful, easy-to-use tool available at such a reasonable cost."
Corporate trainer
Toronto, Ontario, Canada


"I have been a faithful user for the last 6 years or more. I have found QUIA to be a wonderful site to help individualize language learning for students. I have introduced many new teachers and students to it — all of whom have loved using it. Thank you!"
Katherine Irwin, French and Spanish teacher
Milan, Italy


"I make a lot of Quia activities to help the students focus on what to study for the exam. Because of the activities, the students' grades improved from low 70's and 60's to 80's and 90's."
Teacher of nutrition and nursing classes
Phoenix, Arizona, U.S.A.


"This past year, Quia has really helped me out. For three years now I've had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and I've had a very full schedule (I'm the only language teacher at our school and I teach levels 1-4 of French AND Spanish). When it came down to semester exam time, it took a long time to type in the tests, but hey, now they are done for next year. And when the kids pressed "submit"? Poof! The test was graded! You helped me survive the year!"
Teacher
Indiana, U.S.A.


"I'm so grateful for all the work that you people do. It's made my life very much easier in terms of delivering varying amounts of information to varying amounts of people at varying times. I love the way that Quia plays into my vision of flexible teaching techniques. Some kids zoom right through and I can give them other activities to do that they enjoy, while we wait. It's awesome. I love just about everything about Quia! I've said it before and I'll say it again... I LOVE QUIA!"
Kevin Beaulieu, foreign language department chairman
East Providence, Rhode Island, U.S.A.


"I am currently getting my masters in Educational Administration. I am doing my research on the differences in information retention with Quia tests and traditional tests. I believe that the students will do much better with the information that they tested with on Quia. I recently gave them a survey as part of my research. Their responses were overwhelmingly for computer testing."
Chrisann Justice, 9th grade Spanish teacher
Houston, Texas, U.S.A.


"My students report that when they utilize Quia on a regular basis, their in-class quiz scores have improved at least a grade level if not higher!"
Carmen Andrews-Sanchez, high school Spanish teacher
Henderson, Nevada, U.S.A.


"My students love Quia. On-task behavior is phenomenal, frustration level is non-existent, and student involvement in their own learning is near 100%. I have heard students talking to the computers saying 'Yes!' 'Ah!' 'Oh, that's right!' Many students have said to other students, 'That was nice of Mr. Belcher to let us play games all period.' They never realized they had learned what I wanted them to."
Herbert Belcher, 7th grade geography teacher
Tampa, Florida, U.S.A.


"The games are great. Since I create them, they are always completely in line with my curriculum. My students really love using them."
Tracy McNichols, teacher
Methuen, Massachusetts, U.S.A.


"I am very pleased with Quia. I am able to perform quick and accurate assessments of the performance of individuals, classes, and year groups. It is an excellent resource. Without hours of hand marking and analysis I have almost instant feedback of my students' progress and learning."
Mike Creagh
Sheffield, United Kingdom


"Quia has become the lifeblood of my classroom. In a continuation setting I may have 10 to 20 students in one class, all of who may be in 10 to 20 different places along the social studies continuum. It can be hectic to keep track of somany different subjects in one class at one time,not to mention how difficult it makes whole-class lessons. Quia has made it possible for me to juggle 20 different lesson plans per class. I don't know how I would have ever survived if I had not stumbled across this website.... Most ofmy kids have not done well in school before, and have become conditioned to simply 'give up' or not try at all if they sense they are going to fail. Using the games, the practice quizzes, etc. has really helped to alleviate a lot of the stress on a bunch of kids who really struggle to perform well. The number of credits my students are earning this year is 1000x better than in years past (literally!) — and they are working from harder material!!! I am so proud of them, and grateful to Quia for making it possible. I would recommend this website to anyone — I've already sold the staff at my school and they also see Quia as a real 'answer to our prayers.'"
Jennifer Anaforian, continuation high school teacher
Selma, California, U.S.A.


"I am delighted. I am using Quia to have students practice what they have learned about basic computing. They are very engaged. They *love* pointing out where I have left out answers they believe should be included. They enjoy taking the quiz online and seeing the results right away."
Middle school and high school technology teacher
Colorado, U.S.A.


"The analysis of items missed, the grading, and the reporting are fantastic. The best part is that the material is mine and not from an author who does not know what I stress."
David Martin, Spanish teacher
San Jose, California, U.S.A.


"I really LOVE this program online. The templates are so easy to follow and it only takes minutes to set up an activity. Yesterday, my students went to the computer lab to see what 'Mr. Weaver' was raving about. They were enthralled and absolutely loved the activities. They thought it was so much fun and better than 'learning.' Little do they realize that they were in fact learning — the fun way! Thank you for having this site available!"
Matthew Weaver, high school French teacher
Erie, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.


"I just want to take the opportunity to thank you for the incredible teaching tools you have made available to me. Quia has made my job easier, more enjoyable and more effective. Instead of spending time grading student work, I am able to use that time analyzing the results. I can look at the results of a quiz, for example, and see right away which questions gave my students difficulty. This, of course, helps me to understand which concepts to re-teach or spend more time on. I can also re-evaluate the quiz itself. Well, you can sign me up as the president of the Quia fan club! ... Wait, there is another thing I must commend you on. I have had a few occasions where I needed some technical support. I e-mailed you my questions, and your support team always got back to me quickly, with excellent and personalized help.... I just felt that I needed to thank you for your great service. I love Quia!"
Lauren Finaldi Gurus, high school Spanish teacher
Boca Raton, Florida, U.S.A.


"I was going to retire in the next couple of years but I am so excited now with this new technology I might stick around more years to see how it plays out. It has made my teaching much more enjoyable for me and the students. Quia is the best thing for Education since the advent of books. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!"
Richard Kroff
Tooele, Utah, U.S.A.


"Quia is partly responsible for me becoming a more successful teacher and for me being named as the 2002 Indiana Teacher of the Year Runner-Up by the Indiana Computer Educators (I.C.E.). I thank you and my students thank you!"
Rodney Perdew, history teacher
Indiana, U.S.A.


"I am a Chief in the United States Navy and I am serving with the Marines in Okinawa, Japan. I got started with the Quia product because my boss from Washington, D.C. challenged me to do it. The Navy at that time did not have money to change the curriculum, so I decided to spend the $49.00 a year out of my own pocket to create materials on Quia. I have created two websites that I use to help Religious Program Specialists, Corpsman, and Dental Technicians get promoted. (We use tests in the Navy to get promoted.) My two Class pages have gotten 6,865 hits combined, so there are a lot of people in the Navy that are using them. Quia sure beats having spend thousands of dollars on learning programs. For $49 a year it is well worth it."
Joseph T. Price
Okinawa, Japan


"In the past academic year I have used Quia in working with a high school sophomore with learning disabilities. His school had informed his parents that he was in danger of failing in all subjects. Together we produced nearly a hundred matching and flashcard exercises in biology, history, and English. (It was especially motivational to involve him in creating his own exercises.) The results were spectacular. He went from from F's and D's to A's and B's."
Teacher
Washington, D.C., U.S.A.


"I recently found out about Quia and I love it. I teach third grade and since this is a major standardized testing year, the students will be much more prepared after using Quia. What a wonderful resource!"
Ron Crouse, 3rd grade teacher
Leesburg, Virginia, U.S.A.


"I am a 19-year veteran teacher who LOVES teaching and introducing my students to new ways of learning. I've just discovered Quia, but I am looking forward to using all of the various components that Quia offers to assist both my fourth grade students and also my adult ed students to maximize their learning (as well as my own!) I look forward to using Quia as I prepare lesson plans and review/reinforcement activities for my students. It is refreshing to find a website that seems to be totally committed to education and the education community!"
Jason D. Phelps, K-12 and adult education teacher
Douglas, Massachusetts, U.S.A.


"I teach an 8th grade class, but mostly I teach teachers how to incorporate technology into their curriculum. Your site has been fantastic! Easy to use...easy to teach...love the links so parents can feel involved! Thanks for a great website!"
Judy Scott, technology coordinator
Houston, Texas, U.S.A.


"Quia makes it a whole lot easier to grade quizzes and offer supplemental activities for my students to do away from school. They can practice and then take quizzes/tests to check their progress. ... If I could get all my students to access the net, my life would be easier as I would not have to grade as many papers, and I would feel at ease that my students can't go home saying 'I've got nothing to study for Spanish.' They have an entire site not only of Spanish but just about every other subject. Other teachers in my school could benefit greatly from this page as well."
Middle school teacher
Dallas, Texas, U.S.A.


"The games which include foreign language accents are great! Quia is currently my favorite site on the Internet! I can't imagine teaching without it!"
Muriel Mikulewicz, middle school Spanish and French teacher
Burlington, Massachusetts, U.S.A.


"I facilitate the use and integration of technology for teachers K-6 in three of our buildings and I train teachers in Quia's use, primarily. I love the new Rags to Riches game! I also like the Challenge Board. It is so easy to create a review in any subject. Even students can create a challenge in any area. I think Quia is an excellent tool for teachers and students. Its user-friendly interface makes the creation of learning activities easy, quick, and quite painless!"
Technology facilitator
New Lenox, Illinois, U.S.A.


"I like being able to create my own activities, so that the work is directly relevant to my students. Since discovering Quia two weeks ago I've used it with every class I teach and have told all my colleagues about it. We all agree it's a really useful and fun site for our pupils to use."
Carol Hunter, French and Spanish teacher
Merseyside, United Kingdom


"I list students' homework for the week on the site, in addition to important announcements that I make in class. I make games with the weekly vocabulary lists, so that students can practice, and have fun at the same time. I love the concentration/flash cards/find a word games because I only have to type the list once. I don't have a great deal of time to use the computer. Everything is so easy to do. I think Quia is a great tool for both teachers and students."
High school Spanish teacher
Troy, New York, U.S.A.


"I like the flexibility of personal communication with my classes and customized assignments that meet specific needs. This site is a great service!"
Vice principal and teacher
San Diego, California, U.S.A.


"I am relatively new to your site but am amazed at the things I have already found!!! I am in the processes of making games for review and will soon be using the quiz section to track my children's progress. Of all the sites I've found Quia is the most useful tool for creating homeschool activities. If I had to pick a favorite feature now I would have to say the rags to riches game template. This game makes the children feel like they are playing on a "grown-up" game show. Actually I can't wait to use the quiz section to track their progress. Thanks for developing such a wonderful site!"
Home school mother
Ohio, U.S.A.


"I have championed Quia for two years at my school. I love the additions you have made. This year I had about 2000 hits on my Quia class page, from student and parents. I love the ease of using Quia and would love to do workshops to share my enthusiasm!!! I love Quia and have turned on many teachers at my school. I have inserviced with several and they love it. My students love it, and their parents love..therefore my administrators love it too."
Dorothy Fucarino, middle school teacher
Bergen County, New Jersey, U.S.A.


"I love the way the Java quizzes work because of the instant feedback for both students and the teacher. I think Quia is a wonderful teaching tool. I already introduced it to our teachers at a summer conference I taught. I also taught the other computer instructor to use it. Actually, there isn't much teaching involved since it is so easy to use! My students LOVE getting their daily instructions on-line and also having the ability to do a test review from home on-line. Keep up the great work!"
Middle school computer teacher
Vestavia, Alabama, U.S.A.


"I love the games, because my kids think they're great. They don't think of them as extra study. Also, the parents are able to go on and see exactly what is happening in their children's classes."
Pam Freed, fifth-grade teacher
Suwanee, Georgia, U.S.A.


"I teach German in a Danish community college and have students aged between 18-24 years, all with 3-4 years German experience. Quia's really an easy-to-use Web service. Once you get on, you'll notice how easy it integrates in educational and didactical connections. I use it at least 20 minutes out of 180 "educational" minutes a week."
German community college teacher
Copenhagen, Denmark


"I am currently dedicated to teaching and implementing the use of the Internet in our university's first and second year classes. I develop new material as often as I can. I use most of the wonderful tools you have available. The quiz sessions are wonderful. My students keep asking for more! Quia gives me a wide range of options to have my students busy but interested."
University instructor
Hattiesburg, Mississippi, U.S.A.


"I teach in a school district that incorporates TVs and computers in the classroom. Quia has allowed me to create class Web pages for each of my classes where we post information, display exceptional writing samples, etc. I have also used the Scavenger Hunt activity, in addition to others, for a Greek Mythology unit and a Japanese Culture unit. I have used Quia's quizzes both in-class as review of information and as study aides for students to use as review at home when studying. I absolutely love the services provided by Quia. Quia has allowed me to incorporate the Internet and visual resources into my classroom that I would not be able to do otherwise. Thank you Quia! As teaching standards, updated in the last two years in Missouri, now REQUIRE teachers to use computer resources in the classroom, there is great demand for resources. The Internet in itself is easy to use, but creating interactive activities with it is not easy. I have not been able to find any other site that assists me in this way besides QUIA."
Kelly O'Connor, high school teacher
St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A.


"I am so thankful for this site. It has saved me REAMS of time."
First year teacher
Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.


"I use my Quia webpage to link to the other important websites that I have discovered for my classroom. It is very easy and friendly to use. You do not need to be a computer expert to use it.... Thank you for this wonderful site. This is a very helpful site for classroom teachers."
Alicia Campos, teacher
Garden Grove, California, U.S.A.


"I'm very appreciative of your awesome resources! I'm already training others to use it! I have shared it with perhaps 50 teachers! It's fantastic stuff!"
Joyce Aston, 8th grade science teacher
Fresno, California, U.S.A.


"So easy to use — this is the easiest way to create and maintain a website! The games are great — so easy to make and my students love playing them. I get many great comments from the parents also. I love Quia — I do some technology training for our district — I use the last part of all of my workshops to tell people about this site — they are amazed at everything that can be created without much work."
Nicole Ferro, 5th grade language arts and social studies teacher
Pearland, Texas, U.S.A.


"I use Quia for review of vocabulary, grammar and culture. Students use it at home to review for quizzes. Both students at the high school level and college level said that it is very helpful. ... I think this is a wonderful tool, especially for German, where information and activities such as these are difficult to come by. I am actually training other teachers in my department on the use of Quia."
Serena Duncan, German teacher
Vestavia Hills, Alabama, U.S.A.


"Its flexibility makes it easy to customize the drills. It is teacher-driven. Quia runs well on old machines — I don't need the newest equipment in order to make use of it effectively. In a parochial school, on a tight budget, that is a distinct selling point!"
Sister J. LaLande Baricevic, technology coordinator
Belleville, Illinois, U.S.A.


"I love Quia. I post my daily homework assignments, tests and long term projects. I give hints to study for on tests and love the games for review. My students' parents love it because they can check up on the assignments! My students love the games, especially hangman. I love Quia — Thank you so much for this service!"
Lynne Meyer, 7th grade science teacher
Miami, Florida, U.S.A.


"It is so easy to use! Once you get the hang of it, you can really fly. This is so cool!!! It's a great tool to help teachers focus on their learning objectives or standards. Our state has a multi-mark reading assessment. That alone makes Quia fantastic for Kansas."
Julie Daniel, teacher resource trainer

"You offer a fantastic and worthwhile service. I can tell you MANY of my students have logged on to the site and have used the tutorial links, played the games, etc. I started in August and currently have close to 400 hits on my Quia class page. Some have told me it helped them in test preparation. It's nice to know they have such a wonderful avenue for their success. Thank you very much."

"This is an outstanding site. I offer tremendous praise to the staff for continuing to add to and to improve this site. I love the new choices for creating quizzes. The new grading features are a nice addition as well. I have encouraged other teachers at my school to check out this site and to use it. Please keep on doing what you are doing and making any improvements that are possible. The staff is doing a wonderful job. Thank you."

"Quia is so user friendly. I wish other software was as easy. ... I enjoy using Quia very much. Every time I sit down to work on a project Quia is the first resource I select."
June Tribble, public school teacher
Cumming, Georgia, U.S.A.


"I use Quia for review games for grammar and vocabulary that I would like my students to practice before a quiz/test, or just to keep their skills fresh. I like that the quizzes can tell students exactly where they had a problem, and it shows them what they need to review more. I like the many game formats, the quiz sessions (I like that I can see the students' results — they take it a little more seriously). I like that you can search for a game based on the topic, then more specifically within that topic by sub-topic or textbook (example: French:Grammar or French:Discovering French). ... I love your service! It is such a help to teachers, and such a motivator to some hard-to-reach learners who are motivated by the computer and the Internet. Thank you — it is a great idea."
Michele W. Crefeld, middle school Spanish and French teacher
New Jersey, U.S.A.


"The games are great. My students being mostly freshman and sophomores always want to be entertained. It is helpful for me that my students can e-mail me back their results. Also I can design games and quizzes on material that I think they need to focus on and only material that they have seen. So many times other software uses grammar and vocabulary that my students have not seen yet (especially my first year students)."
High school Spanish teacher
Shreveport, Louisiana, U.S.A.


"I use Quia extensively for vocabulary, computer history, copyright law and hardware practice and quizes. I have taught other teachers to use Quia as well. It is one of the most useful websites for educators I have ever found. Thank you for a creative and valuable website."
Donna Girard, computer literacy teacher
Bow, New Hampshire, U.S.A.


"I love the number of features, and the different styles of quizzes and activities. I appreciate the ability to create quiz sessions that allow me to track and analyze student data. Overall, the site is very easy to navigate with valuable features. Of all the online tools I've used, Quia has the most powerful features and usability. Quia's online learning activities and assessments are easy to develop, and more importantly, students are eager to log on and engage their minds. Thanks for providing this much needed resource for educators."
Josh Ricciardi, teacher and instructional design student

"I'm a member of a few online communities, one of them being a large Harry Potter fan club with I think over 50 members, and we create ALL of our quizzes and games on Quia."
Seventh grade student
Calgary, Alberta, Canada


"In social studies this year, both 7th and 8th grades were to take the US Constitution test. I used Quia to help them evaluate when they would be ready to take the test. Out of 40 students, only one needed to re-take the test and that was with a requirement of 78% on the test! ... I love Quia and so do my friends that have tried it."
Kathleen Doherty, social studies and language arts teacher
Wood Dale, Illinois, U.S.A.


"I have a particular student who had a D/F average. With a quiz coming up, he went on the site and practiced what was there that pertained to the quiz. He got 108 on the quiz — 100 plus all 8 bonus points. He attributes it to the practice he did on Quia. I agree!"
High school Spanish teacher
Connecticut, U.S.A.


"I like the quizzes and especially the new features in them!!! Wow, couldn't be much better. Also the Web pages we can make are great! I love it so much and am a strong supporter of learning activities and learning through doing and creating. Sometimes my assignments are for students to make a game or create a quiz on Quia. Keep up the good work!"
Hywanah Bradman, psychology and human relations teacher

High school student
Darlington, United Kingdom


"I teach Latin and Humanities in a private, independent school and have used the Quia website for several years now. I have created class pages, activities and links to other sites for all my classes. The kids find the Quia activities very helpful. I love the activities. I use the simplest ones most often (flash cards, etc.) but am expanding. I am using the quiz sessions more now and find the stats you are able to provide extremely helpful. Your recent upgrade of quiz session options is wonderful."
K-12 teacher
Columbia, South Carolina, U.S.A.


"I am a native speaker of Spanish and enjoy teaching! Quia has a very user-friendly help system and it is easy to create games quickly. Even I, being a novice and a computer phobic, can do it. I am absolutely bubbly now that I can finally find something I can do on the computer without having to holler for the teenage son to come and rescue me. I have learned Quia on my own, and I am ecstatic at my new-found freedom! My students love playing the different games I have created for vocabulary review. It sure beats boring drill work."
Sonia Steckert, middle school Spanish teacher
Auburndale, Florida, U.S.A.

"My grades dramatically increased with using this website. My parents are very proud of me! I use Quia mostly for French, before I have a large test. I used to have problems in that class but now I have an A+!"
8th grade student
New York, U.S.A.


"I LOVE Quia!!!! I use Quia for 99% of my students' homework, quizzes, and exams. I feel that students do better on assessments and homework assignments, because if students make a mistake on a Quia quiz, they find out right away and they can make corrections on the next question so that they can show me what they really know. In 11 years of teaching I've never had a student do an assignment 16 times because 97.5% just wasn't good enough! He wouldn't stop until he had 100% on his Quia activity."
Raul Gaston, high school Spanish teacher

"I think using Quia has helped my students' performance on standardized testing because, as a teacher, it helps me better assess what material I have not covered well. I use Quia as a review and assessment tool, and I like the feedback on quizzes. It allows me to instantly see what areas the students have gained mastery on and what topics I still need to review further."
High school technology instructor
North Carolina, U.S.A.


"All of the teachers at school post their homework and class assignments on Quia. My science teacher has us take all our tests, quizzes, and review questions on it. I think it is cool how they can get everything on this, and it is very helpful to have all our homework posted on it. Good job!"

7th grade student
Virginia, U.S.A.


"The Quia games are a great way for students to practice vocabulary and verb forms while they are still having fun. I have created my own activities, such as Battleship and Challenge Board... For practicing verb tenses I use the Pattern game. I think it has enabled my students to remember the vocabulary more easily, since I have created games with vocab in context."
Rita L. Baldwin, high school Spanish teacher
Granville, Ohio, U.S.A.

6th grade student
Louisiana, U.S.A.

I also like the quiz templates and question center."
Phyllis Zhang, Chinese professor
Washington, D.C., U.S.A.


"In my social studies and computer classes, I use Quia for activities, Web searches, quizzes, tests, exams, surveys, and class contacts.

Your service is wonderful!"
Frank Lengel, educator

I believe it always increases learning!"
Ty Newton, middle school science teacher

My students now have a good time reviewing the material. Thanks!"
Amy Barr, educator

High school English teacher
Georgia, U.S.A.


"I have been using Quia for over five years now. I give most of my History tests online and students prefer to answer their essay questions through Quia because most can type faster than they can write. I have grown accustomed to being able to grade my students' tests online and I love that we can grade by question rather than by student. I am much more efficient when I can focus on one question at a time rather than a student's entire test.... Keep up the good work and thanks for all of the developing that you continue to do!!!"
Karla Sonnenberg, high school teacher
Apple Valley, Minnesota, U.S.A.

Japanese teacher

"I am a home-schooled student who is going to be a junior and wants to go to a top college. I am a straight A student, and I do believe that Quia has influenced my grades or has made it easier for me to maintain them. I use it for Latin, math, and English grammar, and I love the quizzes."
High school student

Holly Rogers, high school Spanish teacher
Portland, Oregon, U.S.A.


"I make a new class page whenever we begin a new chapter, with exercises that are directly related to the characters of our English book. Whenever we go on the site, students ask me if I have added a new 'Rags to Riches' or a new 'Battleship' on irregular verbs. I love 'matching, flashcards'... because it makes learning easier and more attractive, and because you can create 4 different exercises at once."
Corinne Desloges, English instructor
Frignicourt, Marne, France


"I find Quia very useful. I use the activities for every training I give. I love the new features in the quizzes; printing the quizzes is very helpful because in some places where I train there is no Internet. Now I can print my Quia exams. Quia has lessened the time it takes me to grade and to send reports. For the students it helps a lot to see their mistakes, and their grades go up. Congratulations. I hope you keep on enhancing this tool."

University student
Plateau, Nigeria


"One of the greatest benefits of Quia as a teacher is to review the statistical info. If I see that a large percentage of the students missed a question, I can re-evaluate how I taught that concept. This has led to improvements over the years. I use Quia for ALL quizzes... and this year I am starting to use it for labs. Too many favorite features to mention..."
Tim Martin, science teacher
Greensboro, North Carolina, U.S.A.


"Students don't mind taking tests when I use Quia. Test grades have improved when I use my quizzes as reviews one day and then have them do it the next day for a grade. I like the fact that a student can re-do a quiz if I am using it for review until he or she gets all questions right. It is nice that they see the correct answer when they miss a question. I like the automatic grading and the information I can get about the questions a student gets right and wrong."

"I am a special educator on Long Island and have been teaching for 10 years. I teach professional development and in-service courses for teachers and have won various grants and awards for my creative lesson design. Five years ago I came across Quia and fell in love so to speak. I learned more about it and presented some of my work at a local conference. Since then, I have been a believer that students can really have fun as they learn. My students play the numerous Quia games and activities I create and do not even know they are studying. We even created an online survey that our local government used in evaluating a village issue. Quia has a ton to offer."
Monica Consalvo, educator
Port Jefferson, New York, U.S.A.


"I am a freshman in high school, and I love Quia! I love to write, and Quia has activities that fuel my writing passions! Quia has helped my grades tremendously.

Quia is the best!!!"

"I use Quia when I have to do homework for Spanish. I like the fact that I can see my results because then I can see what I messed up on and go back to fix it.

7th grade English teacher
Maine, U.S.A.


"I provide all sorts of Quia activities for the students to practice or learn vocabulary with. Also, all my quizzes and tests are here in Quia and they take them with laptops. The ability to give one test with endless presentations makes cheating extremely difficult, and I like the ease with which to correct it."
Larry Brancheau, middle school Spanish teacher
Sunrise, Florida, U.S.A.


"I like how you can make your own quizzes and games with Quia because they are very easy to do and fun. My instructor also provides us with websites to either take quizzes, do extra credit, or play games. Quia has affected my grades dramatically because of all the extra credit opportunities."
9th grade student
Ohio, U.S.A.


"The activities are great because they generate a lot of excitement for the kids in my class. I'm able to review a lot more, and with less reluctance. They really get into some of the games (Rags to Riches, Challenge Board) and can do the activities at home, too. I have also begun using the site to design quizzes. Students are performing much better. Also, it's easier for me to compile and prove many of my students' grades."
Bryan Corcoran, 4th and 5th grade teacher
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, U.S.A.


"I use Quia all the time, can't do without it, and I sing praises about it during the teacher's trainings that I give. It is the best way to 'preteach' new words, and after each lesson, I make a 'homework' session for my students, which they really enjoy. I notice that they really do their homework this way."
Dutch teacher

High school student

"I have always wanted to take Spanish and this was the year that I could take it. Well, I have had some troubles with the language and my teacher has made a profile on Quia for all the kids in Spanish 1-2, and I love going to it because it helps me the night before a test. It has helped my Spanish grade go from failing to extremely passing; I don't know what I would do without this website. I love Quia and I would recommend it to anyone that has any trouble with about any subject in school. Basically, to sum up this website I would say it is the best study site I have ever used in my life."

"It makes it so easy for students to take a test or quiz and then you grade them for me! I am able to give students immediate feedback on their quiz! This is fabulous."
Kari Marsh, 5th and 6th grade teacher
Crystal, Minnesota, U.S.A.


"After 24 years of teaching, I didn't think there was any teaching method that could make me feel like a brand new teacher. You have done it. I am having more fun than I have in years and the kids are learning more, too."
High school teacher
Georgia, U.S.A.


"Quia is a wonderful differentiation tool for those students with special needs and for ESOL students, who are often quite intelligent but need more time to complete assignments and tests. The various games also give these groups the ability to practice their vocabulary."
High school science teacher
Georgia, U.S.A.


"I love the rags to riches game, battleship, and the quiz features the most. I know that my students score higher-usually 10-20 points higher-if they have the opportunity to practice with the Quia activities prior to the test."
5th grade teacher
Connecticut, U.S.A.


"For online testing of our registered students, being a first-of-its-kind experience in India, we have received a tremendous response. The students here in India have found this method of testing really useful. Thank you."
Educator
Jharkhand, India


"I must say that you have come up with a great product. With Quia, I find that I have a great tool to engage my students before, during, and after class. For every quiz that I have created, I have created a practice quiz that goes along with it. I find my students using the practice quizzes and posing questions as a preparation for their tests. They really like your website. As for me, I am your most recent number one fan. I am recommending it to every teacher that I know. Great job."
Miguel A Jimenez, computer programming instructor
Kissimmee, Florida, U.S.A.


"Thanks so much. You have made my life much easier and helped my students become more successful."
Debbie Addison, 7th grade life science teacher

"My kids use Quia to do assignments and practice and check homework and lesson plans for when they are absent. I have been using Quia for about 4 years now and really love it."
Alice DeHart, Spanish teacher
Carmel, Indiana, U.S.A.


"I use Quia in class to take my quizzes/tests. I like that I can review old tests/quizzes before a new test, and I like that I can go back and answer previous questions because some programs won't let you do that. I can't think of anything to change!"
High school senior
North Carolina, U.S.A.


"I love the rags to riches game and the quizzes. I come to Quia to practice algebra, and I have started to make A's in class now since I got on this website. It is very good. Keep it up!"
7th grade student
Virginia, U.S.A.


"I found Quia through my Spanish teacher as a studying tool and as a quiz/test-taking tool. It's improved my grades. If studying wasn't fun, then I wouldn't do it."
11th grade student
Virginia, U.S.A.


"I have been using your excellent templates for maybe three years now. I know students enjoy their classes more now, and that is always very rewarding for a teacher."
University-level English instructor
Paris, France


"I use Quia as a study guide for the tests or quizzes that I take in class. It made my grade much better because it makes it more fun to study. This is a great way to study and I'm sure the new kids that will experience this will enjoy it as much as I did. THANK YOU."
6th grade student
Nebraska, U.S.A.


"I don't usually like to pay for things, because there are so many good free sites available. But Quia is well worth the price! My primary use of Quia is for review activities. The students love them! They will remain engaged much longer on Quia activities than they will with pencil and paper. They will actually use them to review before a test or quiz; otherwise, when I give students extra study time before testing, most of them choose to do nothing. Students really like the Rags to Riches activity, and I appreciate being able to identify the level of difficulty of the questions."
Carolyn Livingston
7th and 8th grade teacher


"I am good on a computer so when I get on Quia I fly through my work and I understand it better! I use Quia for school uses during school hours but when I'm out of school I go on Quia to play games. QUIA RULES!!!"
High school student
Ohio, U.S.A.


"Using Quia in my Regents Competency Test Review class has improved scores by 25% for those students attending on a regular basis."
Stacey Day, special education teacher, grades 9-12
Brooklyn, New York, U.S.A.


"I REALLY enjoy Quia and it is REALLY useful for studying. I was getting C averages; now I am getting B's ever since I started this!!!"
6th grade student
Illinois, U.S.A.


"I love using Quia, especially with the two online classes that I don't get to see face-to-face. Parents, students and administrators like the fact that they can go there to find out what we're doing in class and to find extra help for the student. I especially like the flashcards and the quizzes that can grade themselves."
June Ebert, high school French teacher
Arlington, Texas, U.S.A.


"The quizzes really help you when it comes time for the test!!!!!!! Quia has helped a lot because I went from a C to a high B. So I'll continue to use this site until I have and can maintain an A in Spanish, and I'll probably use it even then, too, because it's just that fun."
10th grade student
Florida, U.S.A.


"I love the variety of activities that you have developed in the last couple years. The column activity works well for grammar concepts, and the quiz feature is great. I love the class page, and the fact that I can add activities with it with just a click. Quia is very easy to use. You have an imaginative group developing your software."
Bev Larson, high school French teacher
Lewis Center, Ohio, U.S.A.


"I love everything I've used on Quia so far. My students seem to feel a sense of ownership with the activities, quizzes, and surveys, especially since they have their own account. I use my students to help design each of these areas, as well. They love it. There is a lot of excitement on my team now that the students are using Quia."
5th grade language arts teacher
Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.


"I taught in an At-Risk School environment, where we had failed the State-mandated tests six years in a row. In particular, my focus (Social Studies/US History) was traditionally the weakest performers. We were in our last year of attempting to pass the Standards of Learning without there being costly consequences. My team committed to using Quia, sharing 'via Quia,' posting department-wide assessments (along with review activities) and building SOL-based learning activities. Our results? Our average score improved from a 64% pass rate to a 93% pass rate, the largest increase in the county, in any school, department or core subject area (in the county's history). There is NO other reason for this improvement, other than our focused use of Quia. Long live Quia!"
David Hillgrove, history teacher
Richmond, Virginia, U.S.A.


"The test creator is easy to use and makes grading a snap. My students enjoy the games, and they're learning at the same time."
Tammy Holcomb, business education teacher
Cowen, West Virginia, U.S.A.


"The way education is going in my country, I'm sure that many classes will be more electronical/interactive/virtual in the near future. I think Quia offers a wonderful range of appealing games, I like the fact that the exercises appeal to the students, and, of course, I like that it's fairly easy and quick to create exercises."
Eva Hoeg, Spanish and English teacher
Denmark


"I find your website very useful for my online classes. It's very motivating for me and students. I try to experiment with all of your features. I just started Quia a month ago, but I can say that my motivation and my ideas are increasing with each day."
A. Cámara, German teacher
Mexico City, Mexico


"I use Quia mainly for the concentration games for phonics and math concepts. I like the speed with which you can make an activity, and the way it is instantly linked to my class page, which means no uploading to my website. It's done automatically!"
1st grade teacher
Brisbane, Australia


"Students feel more confident because they've had the opportunity to practice in an enjoyable way, and very importantly, in a way that they want to do repeatedly. Quia activities have helped many of my students to become more independent learners, stronger and more confident in the classroom."
Michelle Bloom-Scheff, middle school French teacher
Newton, Massachusetts, U.S.A.


"I like this website and enjoy when we go into the lab and work on Quia. It has actually helped me on the words and phrases that I struggle on and I remember them more easily. I like the games because I learn a lot."
High school student
Iowa, U.S.A.


"I have just completed two 3-day workshops for science and math teachers from almost all countries in S.E. Asia. I had them all take out free trial accounts, and they were really taken with Quia. When asked if they would use Quia when back home, 90% said yes. I think it's a great product. For busy teachers, even ones with weak IT skills, Quia meets a real need, and is easy to use. Almost all of my participants really got a buzz from their Quia work."
Larry Nelson, university professor
Perth, Australia


"I teach Zoology utilizing a college text for high school students. I have been using Quia for years. All of my homework, tests, and study guides are done on Quia. I have shown a 12% increase in overall averages over the past 3 years since implementing testing and study guides utilizing the Quia programming."
Ken Hackman, high school zoology teacher
Madison, Mississippi, U.S.A.


"I use Quia to study for my language exams, and I really like the interactive activities. I have enjoyed using Quia, and I will continue to use this site because it helps me so much. I am so much more confident when I go into my exams. Thanks!!"
10th grade student
New York, U.S.A.


"A co-worker referred me to Quia and I absolutely love it so far! The quiz generator is awesome! I love the fact that you can label questions and select the number of each type of question with each label. We used the quiz as an online test grade where the students could take it over and over. We entered so many questions that the students had to take it multiple times in order to have the same questions. You have done a great job at blocking the methods that kids usually use to try to copy. It is just about a fool-proof method. LOVE IT!!"
Keeley Lowery, high school science teacher
Southlake, Texas, U.S.A.


"Students enjoy taking quizzes online and getting the results immediately. Much time is saved in class because of this feature."
Margaret Minnicks, teacher
Richmond, Virginia, U.S.A.


"I tell every teacher I know about this site. The games and quizzes seem to make a dramatic difference for students who access the site on a regular basis. And the autograding feature is amazing...it's a real time saver. I have cut my grading time in half this year."
Marji Ruzicka, French and Spanish teacher
Vancouver, Washington, U.S.A.


"Quia allows for many interesting ways to differentiate and extend other activities in the classroom. I love the import/export features (including support for Latex/HTML). The question bank is awesome. Thank you! Great tool."
David Hogg, math and science teacher
Calgary, Alberta, Canada


"Overall, student success has improved. It's a great tool! And my students feel as if they have a study aid that directly affects their outcomes."
Educator
California, U.S.A.


"It's fun and easy to use. Because I can easily create warm-up and wrap-up activities, students' grades improve. Students not only learn factual information, but they improve their spelling, too. I rely very heavily on Quia. If you were to disappear, I would cry profusely, thus scaring my students immensely. (Really, I would be very, very depressed. It would be very hard to change my style to accommodate a world without Quia.I got shudders just writing that.)"
Guy G. Gorman, 7th grade history teacher
Richmond, Virginia, U.S.A.


"Many adult ESL students have limited computer skills when they arrive in class, but Quia provides them a fairly easy entry into the world of computers. Because the exercises are directly tied to what we're doing in class and are simple to navigate, it lowers the potential frustration level a lot. I like the ability to add audio and picture files, and the question bank is great for review!"
ESL teacher
California, U.S.A.


"I'm a seventh grader that likes to learn. Because of Quia, I love studying. I study all night using the Quia website. My favorite feature about Quia is that is has all games, but games that test you on what you know. I want to thank you for making Quia because to me, Quia made me feel confident... I learn more easily and love to study more."
7th grade student
New York, U.S.A.


"I loooooove all that Quia offers. I use Quia for homework assignments, weekly quizzes, quarterly exams and final exams. I have seen much improvement in my students' performance and attention to detail in their work."
Richard de Meij, Spanish and French high school teacher
Hartford, Connecticut, U.S.A.


"Students love it. They use it to study every night for homework or test prep. So far it has increased the amount of time my students spend on studying. Anything that makes learning fun is contagious. They get excited when I use it during class and they even print out their scores to show off in class. Love the variety of games and the grading features."
Kristin Oase, high school English and history teacher
Pico Rivera, California, U.S.A.


"My lessons are much more efficient, the students get more and more motivation, and they can see that it IS possible to learn a foreign language while having fun at the same time. I love the quizzes, Rags to Riches, class rosters, and Challenge Boards because they are easy to use and well-structured. Thanks for this wonderful site!"
Christine Konstantinidis, Italian, French and Latin teacher
Erlach, Bavaria, Germany


"I am in my second year of using Quia.com for my 130 sixth grade geography students. I love Quia and use it EVERY WAY POSSIBLE!! Students' grades are tons better due to pretests, study guide activities, etc."
Donna Johnson, 6th grade geography teacher
Seminole, Florida, U.S.A.


"I really enjoy your site. It is easy to use for my students and for myself. I have an LCD projector in my classroom, so I will use Quia's activities as review games with my students. I also have a Quia Web page for each of my classes where there are always activities and quizzes for the students to use at home to prepare for the test. I love the ability to quickly and easily create activities that students can use to study and memorize information. I also like the ease with which I can post the activities to a class webpage that is easily accessible by all. I believe that it has encouraged preparation for quizzes and tests. Student grades have gone up."
Laura Sharbaugh, high school science teacher
Clearwater, Florida, U.S.A.


"I tell my students to log onto Quia if they finish a project earlier than the rest of the class. The activities help them to sharpen their knowledge of what we've gone over so far, and they feel like they're 'playing'. I believe that this has helped their knowledge of key terms we use in class. Love the self-grading tests!"
Debbi Merker, K-12 computer teacher
Flat Rock, North Carolina, U.S.A.


"I have been using Quia as a supplement for students to study at home for many years. Our parents LOVE the site for extra practice. Once the kids get used to using the page, their science and social studies grades improve."
Sandra Flint, 3rd grade teacher
Houston, Texas, U.S.A.


"My math teacher always has some activities for us to do on Quia. I love that even if you don't have a teacher subscribed to Quia, you can still learn by playing the shared activities! So cool. And I love the fact that teachers can make their OWN activities! Talk about personal!"
7th grade student
Pennsylvania, U.S.A.


"I like how easy it is to make out a test and be able to transfer questions from one test to another. I also like the students having immediate feedback."
Ronnie Thompson, 6th grade science teacher
Marion, Virginia, U.S.A.


"I use Quia to develop online exercises for an algebra book I'm writing. The question bank is extremely well-designed, flexible, and easy to use. As you get the hang of it and accumulate a collection of 'templates' for creating new quizzes, you become more and more productive."
Mike Frantz, retired high school math teacher/administrator
Newton Centre, Massachusetts, U.S.A.


"I think you have a great product. I have taken out a five year subscription and have created hundreds of activities. Students love them. It means that they do far fewer written drill exercises and there's no need to spend time correcting homework in class. I use Quia all the time! I can customize activities to accompany the texts I teach, and I like the flexibility it give me — just paste the URL on the school homework page for students to review."
Spanish and English teacher
Taipei, Taiwan


"I use Quia for all my science classes. It establishes deadlines and challenges students to improve their grades by taking advantage of multiple attempts for an assignment. I really like the question bank, which allows me to provide different activities for each student and to drill students by providing a different set of questions for each attempt."
Sam Clifford, high school and college educator
Round Rock, Texas, U.S.A.


"I LOVE QUIA MORE THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE. I love that I can create a quiz with full color photographs and illustrations. Thank you for adding the matching style question last year. I love that the quizzes use student logins and that they are graded immediately. I don't know of any aspect of the quizzes section that I haven't taken advantage of. Quia has replaced the Scantron for me completely."
David Haney, high school digital photography teacher
Marlton, New Jersey, U.S.A.


"Quia has affected my students' grades tremendously. As a class our average grades on tests have increased nearly 20%."
High school business education teacher

Donna Johnson, 6th grade geography teacher
Seminole, Florida, U.S.A.


"I really like the practice quizzes. They help me review for my biology tests. Quia has made my grades jump from a B all the way to an A+."

"Quia has helped my grades a lot. I had a C and now I have an A. Thank you!"
Honors biology student

Mahmoud Sadrai, educator
Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S.A.


"I LOVE Quia.com. I recommend it to everyone I know that may have a use for online surveys and quizzes. Every feature I have ever used has exceeded my expectations. In fact, almost every professional I have introduced to Quia uses the site themselves! It is my belief that Quia has improved not only my students' performance, but my own as an adult, online educator and learner. Thank you for this excellent and progressive online tool! No other website meets the online educational challenges that Quia manages so effectively. Please, just continue to keep doing what you are doing! Thank you for making Quia available to online educators and students everywhere!"
Nick Pelino, Jr., educator and student


"I use Quia in my French class, and I find it to be a very helpful tool when studying for a test. I really like that you offer flash cards as a study tool that a teacher can create. I also find that listing the accepted answers to a quiz can be very helpful. Quia has helped each student become more proficient in our class."
9th grade student
California, U.S.A.


"I love how user-friendly it is to create the activities. The step-by-step prompts are perfect! My students are more engaged and try harder to learn the material so they can 'win' the games."
Lauren Williams, 2nd grade reading and writing teacher
Pavilion, New York, U.S.A.


"My students' achievement has increased considerably. I am so grateful for your company and its products. I use Quia in every way possible."
