Raleigh, NC, October 18, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Released for Android on Wednesday, October 16, 2013, the GCF Quiz mobile app shifts the focus of the quiz-taking experience. With a priority on learning, rather than just assessment or testing, the free GCF Quiz app is designed as a flexible studying tool with an emphasis on repetition and content exposure.
By removing the stress of grades or scores, the GCF Quiz app encourages users to create, share, and take quizzes on a variety of subjects, providing users with the choice and flexibility of what they learn. With a minimal design, a simple swipe and tap interface allows learners to create and take quizzes easily and quickly.
By using the included Excel spreadsheet tool, the user can quickly make a quiz on any subject and then share it via email with friends, students, classmates, and colleagues. Four modalities (Include v. Exclude and Random v. Linear) allow the user to choose the level of repetition and content exposure.
In less than three years of creating free educational apps for various mobile platforms, GCFLearnFree.org has launched 17 mobile apps for iOS, Android, and Kindle. Many of these mobile apps have been based on the popular free tutorials that can be found at GCFLearnFree.org. However, the mobile development team is now focusing on creating original apps with a different approach to learning and targeting new audiences.
The GCF Quiz mobile app is optimized for most Android supported devices with enhanced graphics and design.
Although the GCF Quiz mobile app has an initial launch group of 8 quizzes, users are encouraged to create quizzes that are relevant for their lives and then share their favorite quiz via email to apps at gcflearnfree dot org.

“We know that quizzes get a bad rap but we think that should change. Quizzes don’t have to be about grades and stress and the subjects you studied in school. With GCF Quiz, we removed the baggage, took away grades and scores, and discovered a tool all about choice, flexibility, and learning,” states Matt Robinson, Coordinator of Distance Learning, GCFLearnFree.org.
The mobile development team next plans to offer a mobile app called GCF Projects, which will deliver project-based learning along with a new video mash-up, project creation tool.
