Match Maker + Quiz Creator is a robust program for creating matching activities and matching related quizzes. Match Maker + Quiz Creator also comes with many premade activities. Activities can be played in two different modes, "Game Mode" and "Quiz Mode".
In "Quiz Mode", there is a prompt and a set of buttons called responses, only one of which is the correct response. The prompt is the information on one of the buttons of a matching pair. The second button in the matching pair which is the correct response is placed on the game board. Buttons from other matching pairs in the quiz are then placed on the game board as incorrect responses. The student must select the correct response using switches, a touch Window, the computer keyboard, or a mouse click. Up to 8 responses can be placed on the game board in quiz mode.
In "Game Mode", matching pairs appear on the screen. One button is randomly picked which is called the "Prompt". The student has to select the corresponding match. Selections are made by using switches, a touch Window, the computer keyboard, or a mouse click. When the student correctly matches the prompt, the matching pair disappears. When all of the matching pairs are correctly matched, a new set appears. Matching pairs do not have to be identical. One example of a matching pair is matching a word and associated picture such as the word "apple" and a picture of an apple. Another example would be matching the word "one" with the number "1". You can specify anywhere between 2 and 5 matching pairs to appear on the game board at a time.
In either mode, the student is presented with a prompt, one correct response button, and a number of incorrect response buttons. Though Match Maker + Quiz Creator comes with many premade activities, Match Maker + Quiz Creator also allows you to create your own activities. Additional free activities can be downloaded from the Judy Lynn Software website.
