Dynamic Questions are great, but labor-intensive and require special expertise to create.

However, simpler Multiple Choice Questions can be generated on FrontalCortex.com.
  • “Static” Questions
  • Order of answers randomized each time
  • Additional ability to randomize features of the question with a scripting language
  • Easier to create
  • Can be written by non-programmers
  • Facilitated creation of a large question bank
  • ALL questions require feedback
  • ALL questions require references.  References can be entered with a PMID or ISBN
