Learners select one option from a list of many options. It is famous for reinforcing simple concepts such as word meanings in a “vocabulary quiz.”
Learners select one or more options from a list of options. Learners can choose any number of options as more than one correct answer can.
It is similar to a multiple-choice question type; the difference is that learners are presented with only two choices or statements, one of which is true or false.
Learners type in the answer into a blank (textbox). The response is automatically compared with your choice of correct answers. If a match is found, the computer grades the answer as valid.
Learners write their answers in an essay box. You can set word limits and the box size (height and width) to create short or long-answer questions. Once the learner submits the essay, you can manually grade the answer using our manual grading system.
Here’s what the essay question will look like to the quiz takers.
A matching question type is where learners select the correct answers from a drop-down menu to match two options based on associations and relationships.
Hotspot questions are visual questions where learners select a particular image area as the correct answer. You can change the size of the proper area by adjusting its size.
The Drop-down question type provides multiple answers in a list that drop-opens when clicked. Unlike a typical multiple-choice question, the drop-down question type keeps the answers hidden in an expandable list.
The Type-in questions are a unique way to check quiz takers’ knowledge retention by typing their responses in a box as the answer. You can use this question type to extract the exact string of words as answers because the quiz taker will instantly know if they have put in the wrong response and will have to try again.
The order list question type lets quiz takers drag and drop answer options to form the correct order. It is helpful to test the analytical skills and understanding levels of learners.
Add a note for your quiz takers, at the start or in between, to convey any info. For instance, you can inform them about upcoming questions being time specific.
Add a document to your question which quiz takers can download, and you can add questions for quiz takers based on the doc content.
Create an audio/video question for your quiz takers, which they can listen to/watch and answer the questions.
The Record Audio/Video question type enables quiz takers to respond by recording an audio or video. Quiz takers can record their voice or a video in real time or upload a recorded file. It’s a fun and engaging way to answer quiz questions for learners and an accessible medium for interview candidates to introduce themselves. Students can present their ideas & projects, and businesses can prompt customers to record audio/video testimonials quickly.
Add a question that requires quiz takers to upload an image file or document as a response.
A comprehension question type allows you to ask learners questions based on an essay or book passage. It is excellent for testing the reading and comprehension skills of learners.
