Course Management 
Select the category you wish to draw the question from ( Default  in example). You may name 
the question if you wish (you might want to add the category to the name   i.e.  random Default 
#1 ). Note that you can mix random questions with  normal  questions on a quiz. When you are 
done, select  Save changes,  and you should see the main quiz screen with the new random 
question added ( Random Default #1  in my example): 
Random Short Answer Matching    This question makes a matching question by drawing 
random questions and answers from among the short answer questions you have created. You 
must have at least two short answer questions in a category for this feature to work.  
A category is whatever category you were in when you selected the random short answer 
matching question. The question name can be anything you like, but it is suggest adding a 
number to the end (#1, #2, etc.). You may leave the existing default introduction, or you may 
change it if you wish. You then select the number of questions you would like to have.              
When you are finished, click on  Save changes.   You should see the quiz editing screen with 
the new question listed ( Random Short Answer Matching #1  in example): 
Embedded Answers (Cloze)   This question type embeds the answers into the question. This 
allows you to have questions that look like Fig. 27a. These are great questions, but do require 
some formatting. 
The  Question name  names the question for the list. The  Image to display  lists any pictures 
you have uploaded to your  Files  section. The  Question   part  is  where  you  type  your             
question,  but  this  MUST  include  the  formatting.  This  can  take  some  getting  used  to.                       
To create a question like the example in  Fig  27a,  the  following  would  be  entered  in  the             
Question area: 
This sample question consists of some text with  an  answer  embedded  right  here                              
{1:MULTICHOICE:Wrong answer#Feedback for this wrong answer~Another wrong answer#Feedback for 
the other wrong answer~=Correct answer#Feedback for correct answer~%50%Answer that gives half the 
credit#Feedback for half credit answer} and right after that you will have to deal with this short answer 
{1:SHORTANSWER:Wrong answer#Feedback for this wrong answer~=Correct answer#Feedback for 
correct answer~%50%Answer that gives half the credit#Feedback for half credit answer} and finally we 
have a floating point number {2:NUMERICAL:=23.8:0.1#Feedback for correct answer 23.8~%50%N/
A#Feedback for halfcredit answer in the nearby region of the correct answer}. 
This entry will display a question like Fig. 27a. The formatting works like this: 
     Normal text is just typed (like  This question consists of some text with an answer             
embedded right here  from above). 
     To open a field in the embedded question, use the left bracket { and close the field with 
the right bracket }. 
     To insert a pull down menu, type the number of points the field  (menu)  is  worth                 
(1,2,3, etc.). The entire question is worth the total of  all  the  points  of  each  part               
(menus and short answer parts). Follow the number by a colon, followed by the word 
MULTICHOICE followed by another colon (1:MULTICHOICE:). Then type your possible 
answers followed by tildes (~). The correct answer must start with an equals sign (=).        
An answer that counts for partial credit starts with the percent sign followed by the credit 
followed by a percent sign (%50% for 50 % credit).  A  full  example  would  be:                       
{2:MULTICHOICE:Washington~Jefferson~Lincoln~=Franklin~%50%Adams} This entry 
would make a pull down menu of 5 items. This menu would be worth 2 points. In this ex 
ample, Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln are wrong, Franklin is right, and Adams is 
worth half credit. 
     To insert a short answer (fill in the blank), put in the points the short answer is worth, 
followed by a colon followed by SHORTANSWER followed by a colon 
(2:SHORTANSWER:). Then put an equals sign (=) followed by the right answer inside 
the brackets. An example would be {2:SHORTANSWER:=Maine}. This would make a
