Editing Questions

Adding questions

To add a question, select a type from the dropdown menu at the very top of the page. It will then be added to the list at the bottom of the page.

Quiz question insert

Whenever a question is added to the quiz, a new entry will be created to the list. While some entries will differ depending on the question type, all will have the following:

1: Question

This is the text field where the question is typed.

Clicking the image icon next to the text field will open the Image Browser and allow you to insert an image within the text.

2: Choices

These are the text fields where choices (i.e. possible answers) are typed.

Each row corresponds to a single choice. Users select which choices are correct by using the checkboxes to the left of each choice. Clicking the image icon next to the text field will open the Image Browser and allow you to insert an image within the text.

Depending on the question type, you may also have additional fields on the right of each choice.

  • Feedback: Appears for Single choice questions. Allows you to type feedback messages relating to individual answers rather than the overall question. (Also appears for Multiple choice and True / False questions, but will not be enabled)
  • Matches to: Appears for Drag to match questions. Allows you to enter the secondary term that the individual choice will have to be matched with.
  • List / Grouping name: Appears for Drag to list questions. Allows you to enter the group name that the individual choice will have to be dragged into. Multiple choices can have the same entries.

Single choice and Multiple choice questions will also have an option to randomize distractor order (in other words, randomize the order of the choices) when the course is played. If left unchecked, choices will always appear in the order displayed in the editor.

3: Additional options

These are extra options, mainly to do with feedback and miscellaneous settings. They are displayed for every question type, though not all will work on all question types.

  • Answer layout: Affects True / False, Single choice and Multiple choice questions. Allows you to choose whether choices are arranged vertically (stack) or horizontally (float) when shown in the quiz. (Is not present on Fill-in (text / number) questions)
  • FeedbackCorrect: Allows you to enter a text message to display when the user answers the question correctly. (Does not work with Single choice questions; use Feedback fields in the Choices section instead)
  • FeedbackIncorrect: Allows you to enter a text message to display when the user answers the question incorrectly. (Does not work with Single choice questions, use Feedback fields in the Choices section instead)
  • Review: Allows you to enter text to tag a question if you wish. This option is only used for development purposes and does not display anything when the course is played.
NOTES:
  • Questions cannot have their order in the editor changed. If you need them in a specific order and they are not already positioned as such, you will need to delete and recreate the questions in their correct order!
  • Don’t forget to delete the placeholder text “Feedback for items (usually blank)” if you don’t want feedback showing up once the course is played!
