___ years old), or just ask for answers (Name the first 3 presidents).  
Note: One big caution to pass on to students: a misspelled answer is WRONG (unless you put 
in the right answer and the 2 or 3 most common misspellings   that would work). 
Next to each answer is the  Grade  field. The total points of the question must equal 100%. In 
the case of the presidents question above, you would make each answer worth 33% of the 
question. In the case of the fill in the blank question, one answer would be worth 100%. You 
can have multiple answers be worth 100% (in the case of listing common misspellings, or in the 
case of  Name 1 of the first 3 Presidents    where 3 answers would be worth 100% each). 
You may also fill in feedback for each answer. Feedback generally comes up if you type an 
answer that the quiz has, so on short answer questions, the feedback is limited to telling you 
why your answer is correct (on short answer questions  only).  The  feedback  can  show  the          
student the correct answer if the student guesses wrong, even if the wrong answer is not in the 
list of answers. Once you are finished, click on  Save changes   to  return  to  the  quiz  edit           
creation screen (Fig. 26). 
Numerical Question    To add a numerical question, make sure  Numerical  is selected in the 
 Create new  question  drop down menu. This will take you through a process similar to that of 
creating multiple choice questions discussed above.  A numerical question is a question that 
expects a number for the answer. It has the added flexibility to accept  a  range  of  answers            
(10 +  3 would accept anything from 7 to 13).  
Fill in the  Question name  with anything that will help you identify the question. In the 
 Question  box, fill out the question you wish to ask ( How fast can Matt run? ). If you have 
loaded any picture images to the system  (from Files area), you will have the option to display 
the image as part of the question. Next, fill in the correct answer, and the accepted  error            
(2 in the example would allow a correct answer of 8 12). You may then fill in feedback if you 
wish to use that feature. When everything is filled out the way  you  want  it,  click  on                    
 Save changes.  The question will then appear in the list of questions on the main quiz screen. 
Matching   To add a matching question, select  Matching  from the drop down menu. This will 
take you through a process similar to that of creating multiple choice questions discussed 
above. Fill out a question name that you will recognize, and then write the  big  question   this 
is the introduction the student sees. This could be  Match  the  following  questions  with  the        
correct answers,  or  Match the name of the president with  the  year  he  was  elected,   or          
anything else you like.  
Next, fill in at least 3 questions that will be matched to the answers you provide. The 
 questions  can be one word to be matched to the answer. Each matching part is worth an 
equal amount (if you have four matches, each is worth 25% of the whole question. The whole 
question then can be weighted on the quiz   more on weighting later).  When you are finished 
filling in the whole question (remember the program treats all the matches   even if there are 
eight   as one question), click on  Save changes.  You will then be taken back to the quiz edit 
ing screen where you will see your new question added to the list. 
Description     To  add  a  description,  select   Description   from  the  drop down  menu.                      
A description is not actually a question. It allows you to add text to a quiz (such as a story or an 
article) that you can then ask other questions about. Fill in the  Question name  with a name 
that will help you remember the description. Then, in the  Question  box, fill in your description              
(story, article, etc.). If you have uploaded pictures in the Files area, you can choose to display 
them with the description (so your description can describe a picture). When everything is filled 
out the way you want it, click on  Save changes.  Your description should now appear in the list 
of questions on the main quiz screen. 
Random question    To select a random question, select  Random question  from the drop 
down menu.  A random question will select a question that already exists randomly from all the 
questions in any category you specify. If you have 10 questions in say an Othello category, this 
feature will pick one of those questions at random.
