Hi, it's your friendly web developer here with a few words on the how and why of cloZure
It's the end of a long day, so I'll keep this brief. I started work on this particular site after building wapipedia.org, a mobile phone enabled version of the wikipedia. At the time I was also working on trainingo2.net and added some code to make cloze tests from likely looking phrases in the training package descriptions.
It worked pretty well, but I could see there was an opportunity for a much better interface; and a much broader audience, so cloZure was born
You've probably alread figured out how to get a cloze test up on the screen, and linking to a page once you've found it shouldn't present too much difficulty; but I'd like to point out that there's more you could do. For example, if you wanted to make the cloze test into an assessable item, you could highlight, then copy and paste the test into a word processing document, ready to print out and distribute as a real, paper-based, markable test (don't forget to print a finished copy for your marking guide).
I've got other ideas - embeddable widgets, a printable CSS that hides all the clutter and 'build your own test from text you provide' but, like I said, it's the end of a long day, so these will just have to wait.
Have fun with cloZure. Tell your friends about it, and send me a message if you think up something new you'd like to see it do.
- all the best
