190,000 short-answer and multiple-choice questions referenced to 20,000 topics, covering virtually everything in a quality curriculum through the secondary level. Integrated, interdisciplinary and easy to use, Knowledge Master is an unparalleled academic resource.

 

Some things you can do with 1,000s of questions at your fingertips:

Knowledge Master empowers students to build a broad knowledge base while implementing higher cognitive skills and critical-thinking abilities. Here are a few things teachers, students, academic coaches and parents can do with this comprehensive array of stimulating questions.
  • Build reliable tests quickly with just the desired degree of difficulty on practically any topic.
  • Create individual, cooperative or competitive activities for students to explore and review course material.
  • Implement criterion-referenced testing with any course or program.
  • Effortlessly create rounds of questions for academic competitions.
  • Prepare an academic team with world-class practice -- general or specific.
  • Give curriculum a checkup. What does it emphasize? Is everything covered?
  • Give your own education a checkup. How much do you know about something -- or everything?
  • Objectively evaluate independent study.

Questions for different educational levels

Knowledge Master questions are available at three educational levels (for Windows or Macintosh):
  • Knowledge Master Library: The entire database of 190,500 questions, emphasizing knowledge and skills presented at the high school level. $385

These questions are also available in subject series by grade level and by individual subject titles starting at $24, as shown on our order form. Every year the minions of the Great Auk add thousands of new questions to the database, which are available on an annual update.

Knowledge Master Network/Site License: Install Knowledge Master on your school network or make unlimited copies for use in your school for a one-time licensing fee. $200

Vast, credible sources inspire the questions

Knowledge Master's mission is to present the elements of a quality education through questions and the practical means to use them. Knowledge Master questions are carefully written to include appropriate knowledge-level items, but most involve the higher cognitive skills of comprehension, application and analysis. These questions are inspired by a host of resources including text books, reference works, periodicals, atlases, curriculum guides, course objective summaries, primary sources, and news media. Therefore, the questions represent many different perspectives, addressing curriculum-related topics.

Question selection is easy, yet powerful

Easy-to-follow menu choices help you select a group of questions by choosing:
  • the topic(s)
  • the number of questions
  • short-answer, multiple-choice or both
  • difficulty level, ranging from Elementary to Master
The questions are then automatically, randomly, and instantly selected for you. Browse through the selected questions and, with a click, omit any you do not want in the group. The group of questions may be saved for future use and, if desired, modification.
Knowledge Master's 20,000 topics are the key by which you select questions from the database. This small sample of the topics demonstrates their range -- from very broad to very specific.

Versatile features give you abundant options

On-Screen Activities: Direct student use of the database includes activities for self-quizzing or challenging others. You can even simulate a timed Knowledge Master Open with multiple-choice questions you choose.
Printing: Knowledge Master includes a variety of printing routines so you can produce tests, quizzes, worksheets or academic competition rounds. Print answers with the questions or on a separate key; print questions in one or two columns or on cards.
Parallel Forms: Instantly randomize the questions in a selected group to effortlessly produce the same test with questions in a different order.
Modify Questions: Change any part of any Knowledge Master question, including the stem, the foils, the topics or the difficulty level. You may even completely replace or delete questions.
Add Your Own Questions: Create an unlimited number of your own questions, which will be automatically indexed with those already in the database.
Password Protection: Protect the question database with your own password, which keeps unauthorized hands from changing anything. Questions may be added or modified only if the password is on. The password enables you to assemble question groups, say, for exams, and restrict access to them by anyone but you.
Test Reliability: One of the most remarkable qualities of the system insures that your measuring instrument is not a rubber ruler. Two randomly generated Knowledge Master tests, with at least 20 questions each on the same topic at the same difficulty level, given to the same students, will produce similar scores. For the statistically minded, the reliability coefficient for the alternate forms is nearly always higher than .8. Of course, higher reliability can be achieved with greater numbers of questions. This level of reliability occurs whether you are testing a fairly specific topic such as the American Revolution or a very broad topic like American History.
Test Validity: Knowledge Master tests and quizzes test what they are supposed to measure by providing content validity. All questions in the database are criterion-referenced -- each question is referenced to the appropriate topics. So, if you randomly select questions on a topic, the questions will all relate to the topic.
