Test question types and how they work

General question settings

Every question type, when you add it, has 2 possibile options (answers) by default. Excepted the types where this doesn't make sense.

You always have the buttons: Add one more answer or Remove last answer that you can use to add or remove options. 

add remove

You can also add positive scores to the correct answers, negative scores to the incorrect ones, and comment both answers. Your comment will be displayed to the user in the Scorecard. 


Question type: Single choice (SC)

This is the most common question type. In other LMS or in real life this is often called Multiple Choice, but it's actually a single choice, since only one option is the right answer. This is how you insert your question text

SC 1

This is how you insert answers. Please note that you should mark the radio button in the correct one.

Question type: Association (AS)

In this case, the user is supposed to associate items on the left side to items on the right side, that will be chosen from a drop down field. 

Let's see this example: 


These are the answers, with items in group A and B

AS 2

Then you just have to associate A and B (and comment, if you wish). 

AS 3

This is how it will look like

AS output

Question type: Text Entry (TE)

This question is what is commonly called "Fill the blank" in other systems, and that is exactly what it is. 

The [answer] placeholder is where the learner will be displayed an empty box where he is supposed to fill the blank with an answer. 


In this case, of course, there is only one possible answer. 

This is how the output looks like. 

TE output


Question type: Extended Text (ET)

This question type is used when you want your learners to write an open answer, a short essay or a comment. In this case, the system of course will not be able to automatically assign a score, but the teacher's intervention will be needed. 

This is how you insert the question


This is how it looks like when published.

The teacher will be able to see the comments in the gradebook or user stats.
