MakeQuiz and TakeQuiz

MakeQuiz and TakeQuiz are two apps that, in tandem, allow a teacher to create quizzes for a student. Parents can create fun trivia aps for their children during a long road trip, grade school teachers can build "Math Blaster" quizzes, and college students can build quizzes to help their study groups prepare for a final. This tutorial will walk you through creating both the MakeQuiz and the TakeQuiz app.


QuizMe is a trivia game about baseball, but you can use it as a template to build quizzes on any topic. With QuizMe the user steps through a series of questions, clicking a Next button to proceed to the next question. The user enters an answer for each question and the app reports whether each answer is correct or not. For this tutorial, you'll create an app in which the questions are always the same unless you, the programmer, change them. Later, you can create MakeAQuiz, an app that lets users create and modify the quiz questions.

Pizza Party with Fusion Tables

Pizza Party is a database app that collects dinner orders from different people and stores them in a Google Fusion Table. The app also uses the WebViewer component to let the user see the entries in the table. Fusion Tables are Google's free cloud database solution.

See the tutorial for more information, and begin creating your own shared database solutions!
