Next, select the Fill in the blanks (Cloze) category from the options on the left, then select Cloze with text.
➡️ Step 1: Compose Question

You have many formatting options from the Rich Text toolbar, including changing the font size, adding tables, using math symbols, adding multimedia, and more! Click here for more information on the different functions of the Rich Text toolbar.
➡️ Step 2: Add Answer Content
Template markup: In this field, type or paste the passage into which the response fields will be inserted.
To enter the responses in the correct positions, there are two approaches:
Option 1: Type the passage around the existing Response fields in the template.
Option 2: Type or paste the passage into the field, and use the Insert Response button in the Rich Text toolbar at the appropriate positions in the text.
Set Correct Answers and Scoring
➡️ Set Correct Answers
Response fields: Type correct answers into fields. By default, answers will need to be exact (but are not case-sensitive, and will ignore blank spaces before or after responses) to be auto-graded properly. Misspelled or alternate words will not be awarded credit (see More options section below).
Alternate Answers: If alternate answers are acceptable (like synonyms, alternative spelling, or abbreviations), click the + button. Each set of alternates can be valued at different point levels (but Correct must be the highest point value). If all Alternates are equivalent, check Match all possible responses and the Correct answer or any Alternate will be awarded full credit.
Point value: Enter the full point value for getting this answer correct (see More options section below)
Alternate answers: click the Add ( + ) button to add alternate answers
Match all possible responses: used in conjunction with Alternate answers (see More options section below).
Exact match (Default): All parts of the answer must be correct to be awarded credit.
Partial Match Per Response: Each correct answer will be awarded the full credit designated in the Set correct answer(s) field. (In this example with three answers, awarding 1 point per correct answer, adding up to as many as 3 total points).
Partial Match: Each correct answer will be awarded partial, proportional credit designated by the Set correct answer(s) field. (In this example with three answers, 1/3 point per correct answer, adding up to 1 total point).
It's highly recommended to Preview the question before adding it to the assessment. This displays the question as the students will see it and also verifies that the answers and scoring work as expected.
Step 1: Select the Preview button to go into Preview mode.
Step 2: Answer the question with the correct answers, including alternates.
Selecting Show Answers will present the correct answers.
Step 3: Verify that the auto-score correctly calculates the point value.
