Apps and Websites for Making Flash Cards and Quizzes

Flash card and quiz apps help students get familiar with and memorize information as well as test their factual knowledge. This list of apps and websites gives students a lot of flexibility for memorization and quizzing, offering a range of premade content as well as quick custom list building, adaptive learning, and assessment. While there's a healthy dose of spelling, vocabulary, and math tools, many of these resources can be used creatively for any content.
