EMTask – Math Test Authoring Software

EMtask mathEMTask was specifically designed to address the needs of math teachers – from elementary school through high school – who want a reliable cost-effective tool for preparation of tests, quizzes, exams and homeworks, and for above-average students who want to study for and take tests. EMTask offers an infinite number of math problems with answers and solutions, together with a set of test preparation options.

A difficulty scale for each task – 11 complexity levels – will assist teachers in a class of mixed ability students. To develop a test, you have to specify topics and a level of test complexity – that’s all. The software itself will select the corresponding examples for you. Unwanted examples can be replaced at once. For more demanding teachers the software offers a way to develop math tests manually, by visual selection of each example. When you save your test, the software itself generates up to 30 similar test variants. All math tests with or without the solutions can be printed out. EMTask is a time-saving solution for math teachers!

The software modules are organized by subject. Covered subject areas are Arithmetic, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and II, Trigonometry and Hyperbolic Trigonometry. The trial version of EMTask can be downloaded from this site. Alternatively, you can try some options online.

EMTask User options:
