Mallard is a web-based, interactive, quizzing tool. Faculty can design and post quizzes securely over the web and record students' results. Students can take quizzes, do class exercises and track their grade progress. In addition, Mallard can be used to post class assignments, course information, syllabi, and links to other pertinent sites.
Mallard can be used as a central location for all the information pertaining to a course. Each Mallard site is configured with a section for announcements, course information, links to lessons, and more.
But the real power of Mallard is its online quizzing utilities. Mallard gives developers great power and flexibility, while maintaining an easy-to-use format. Mallard accomplishes this by using a simple question format that allows authors to use externally defined "modules" (called input types) to generate and correct questions. Developers do not need to design these input types, but if they desire it, the flexibility is there.
Faculty that would like to request a Mallard site or a demonstration of what Mallard can do should send email to email@example.com with a brief description of their needs.
