I did not see any actual tests on the OpenTest website. I see it is 
going live in Q2-2013.

I have been using our university "QuizComposer" and the quiz facility in 
Wikiversity. I build this one: http://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Python_quiz

The MediaWiki quiz extension in Wikiversity has multiple choice, 
true/false, multiple response, and text area (like your system 
http://www.opentest.cc/types-of-questions/). It has facility for 
computer code, images and math. I is visually appealing, reasonable easy 
to edit and has scoring. The bad news is that it does not store the 
student responses nor scoring.
