Elgebar Studios has released the latest version of its teacher's tool, Pencils Down 4.0.

This is a Mac application designed to help teachers create standard paper tests without fretting over formatting problems.

The latest version includes customizable themes and allows for one-click posting of tests to the web. The software also allows images and PDFs into tests in order to create "matching questions".

Elgebar Studios is offering a service where teachers can post their test to the Elgebar Studios quiz server with no configuration whatsoever. Students can then take the test online using any modern browser on any platform: Mac OS X, Windows, or Linux.

The software presently costs $32, until 18 September when the charge climbs to $40.
