Your asking about idevdepots quizmaker? Last I checked it was not set up to make quizes for the Advanced Quiz plugin. I am fairly certain there is an easy way to take a spreadsheet like excel and convert it to json. I just havn't found it yet. I could look into it over the next week.

I wrote a Ruby program to pull my question content from my custom SQL database and transform it into the JSON files needed for the Advanced Quiz. It's not packaged properly for general use but happy to share the code if it would help. Perhaps you could pay a Ruby developer to modify the code to read from a CSV file or your own SQL database. You could probably get someone to do it for less than $50 on elance.com

That second one I posted from Pamela Fox is really slick.

You can use this for the spreadsheet. Save it into your own google docs account. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AlNR0A2ihfATdF9GclM5T0czSFNGNmxlazNTWFU3cHc&usp=sharing If 'Format JSON' doesn't show up in the menu then add this script to the spreadsheet from this link http://blog.pamelafox.org/2013/06/exporting-google-spreadsheet-as-json.html
