Creating a new question

You can add a variety of different types of questions to a category:

Multiple Choice

    In response to a question (that may include a image) the respondent chooses from multiple answers. There are two types of multiple choice questions - single answer and multiple answer.

    More info about Multiple Choice questions

Short Answer

    In response to a question (that may include a image), the respondent types a word or phrase. There may several possible correct answers, with different grades. Answers may or may not be sensitive to case.

Numerical

    From the student perspective, a numerical question looks just like a short-answer question. The difference is that numerical answers are allowed to have an accepted error. This allows a continuous range of answers to be set.

True/False

Matching

    A list of sub questions is provided, along with a list of answers. The respondent must "match" the correct answers with each question.

Embedded Answers (Cloze)

    These very flexible questions consist of a passage of text (in Moodle format) that has various answers embedded within it, including multiple choice, short answers and numerical answers.

Random Short-Answer Matching

    From the student perspective, this looks just like a Matching question. The difference is that the subquestions are drawn randomly from Short Answer questions in the current category.
