HotPotatoes is a suite that consists of six programs that are used for creating exercises or tests for websites. The six programs are JCloze, JMatch, JMix, JQuiz, JCross, and The Masher. The first five programs allow users to create crossword puzzles, matching tests, fill in the blanks, short answer questions, and multiple-choice questions. The Masher application compiles all of the questions into one test. The program was first released in 2008.
Users can create exercises by entering questions, answers, and other data that will be used for the exercises. Afterwards, the application will automatically create the web pages containing the exercises. Users need a separate license to use The Masher application. Users can view a comprehensive guide for using the program on the program’s website.
