This is amazing! If you're not fluent with excel then it may take you an hour or two to get your head round using it! It was so easy to use until I got to the graphs questions and I had a few issues due to having the two files open... maybe due to the fact I'm using office 2010 but who knows! The "cut" add-in wasn't visible then it said I couldn't paste into the test file... after a few attempts and switching macros between the two files, I managed to make the "cut" add-in visible and switched the macros back to the test file in order to paste the question. This might have been more difficult because I'm not very good with excel but I figured it out in the end and it will definitely make future test making much quicker now I know how to use it. A fantastic resource and well worth the money. Thanks for taking the time to make it!
Many thanks for purchasing and the positive review j2dutto!
Good question banks but does not work as designed. Get a run time error 5 on load. Macros do not work properly and also get cells read only so cannot paste across at all. Very frustrating. Thought it would make test making easier but not the case so far. I am still working on it but not what I was hoping for.
Sorry to hear you are experiencing problems freetimefrankie. The files should work as described in the instructions but I would be happy to assist you if you want to message me (starting a conversation might be the best way).
I have bought the resource but i am having trouble adding questions to the test template. it has only allowed me to add three questions but then i can not seem to add any more as i can not scroll down to add more...help please
Hi MulizaRichard. There is some code that removes the scroll bars to enable the Question Bank and Test Template to fit better side by side. If you select any cell on the worksheet you should be able to view cells below by using the down arrow key. If this does not work then we can look again at the file.
I am having so much problems using this resource. It has taken me the better part of 3 hours to set a test which still has problems and cannot be formatted for others who do not have the resource. The scale for the quadratic graph does not change when the function changes (ALG 23). The total at the top of the page is not the same as the total for the questions. Been fooling around computers fro decades and I can't recall such frustrations ever - ironically, I was seeking an easy way out. I must be doing something completely wrong. Any help available, please?
I am sorry to hear that you have been having problems with the file salands66. Regarding the quadratic graph you must ensure you use cut (default option when question is selected) rather than copy for any question with a graph or chart. The total for the test should update automatically but you should insert additional rows at the bottom of the test first if you run out of space. The formula for the total marks is contained in cell B5. If you want to send me what you have so far I could have a look at it for you.
Hi salands66. How are you getting on with the resource? I added an icon on the Test Template file to indicate where any rows should be inserted or deleted which I hope will make it clearer for users and avoid the problem of the total marks not updating correctly. I have followed you on TES which should mean we can exchange a personal message and I can look at the other issue you mention if you are still having a problem with this. Hope this helps.
Looks good. One question though I cannot get the straight line graphs to match the described equation when I create two of this type (Algebra17). Am I doing something wrong please or are similar questions not possible. Thanks
Thankyou jaybee38 for choosing and reviewing my resource. Any questions with charts or graphs should be cut not copied from the Question Bank file otherwise chart data will be left behind. This will leave a gap where the question was but as long as you don't save Question Bank file this should not be a problem.
