Can students use the Windows version of Quiz Show Lite (from home) to access quizzes that I have created using ExamView Pro 4.1 on a Mac using OS X?

There are a couple of ways to accomplish this.

- You can create a test in ExamView and export it as an XML file. Then post that file on the Internet for your students. When your students access the test, they MUST save the file to their computer, run Quiz Show, and choose to open the test. If they simply click the link, the browser will display the XML content rather than launch the program.

- Another way is to create both a Windows (.tst) and a Macintosh test file. Then a student can simply click that link and the program will automatically launch.

The solution really depends on how easy you want to make it for your students.

P.S. When you receive ExamView from FSCreations or from a publisher, the disc contains both the Windows and Macintosh programs.
