How to Create a Cloze Test


A cloze test is perfect for testing your learners' understanding of context and vocabulary.  It is a quiz with two questions types - fill in the blanks and multiple choices.



Here's a preview of how a cloze test will appear:



To demonstrate the process, let's create a cloze test for the proverb "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy."  


Step 1: Create a new quiz and select multiple choice question type to start. 



Step 2: Add content to the question box omitting the preferred words, use underscore to include blanks in place of the words.  Here, we use the proverb as "All ___ and no ____ makes Jack a ____ boy."  Add the answer choices - work (correct answer), play (incorrect answer). Click "Save" to add the question.


 Boldface blank spaces that the user has to answer. This way, the quiz taker has a smoother experience while taking the test.


Step 3. Select a new multiple choice question type and repeat the same procedure as in Step 1. Add the answers for the second blank - work (incorrect answer), play (correct answer). 


Step 4. Repeat the above steps to create a question for the remaining blanks. Add answers for the third blank - dull (correct answer), bright (incorrect answer). Click "Save" to secure the changes. Click the link below to preview sample cloze test.
