Next, select the Fill in the Blank (Cloze) category from the options on the left, then select Cloze with drop down.

Step 1: Compose Question

Step 2: Create Template Mark Up

  • Text and response boxes can be added in the Template Markup area. To add a response box, select the lower case "r" button in the Rich Text toolbar.
