Simplifies Creating Tests in Microsoft Word while adding Accessibility

One test that can be used with ALL students, regardless of their needs. Premier Test Builder enables you to make a single test that is accessible to all students, including students with learning disabilities, blind users, low vision users, even general education students.

Test Builder combines the power and flexibility of Microsoft Word with pre-built templates of question styles. All you do is select the question style you want by clicking on a button from the Test Builder tool bar and just add your text, audio or pictures. This tool is a must for busy educators.

The best part about Premier Test Builder is that when you save the finished test, it is also fully accessible to a wide variety of assistive technologies.
