  • Compose Question: Type question prompt into this field.

  • Image Preview: Select Edit to upload an image as the label template

  • (Optional) Text on Hover: Upon hovering the mouse pointer over the image, text in this box will appear. Image alternative text: for students with accessibility needs, this field can be used to describe the content of the image in some detail.

➡️ Step 2: Add Answer Content

Response positions

  • Click and drag the numbered response fields into their appropriate positions.

  • Add or Remove responses: Click the Add button to add more responses. Click the red X button on the response field to remove.

Set Correct Answers and Scoring

➡️ Set Correct Answers

  • Answer fields: Select correct answers from drop-down menus. Note - in order for the question to auto-score, correct answers must be selected here.

➡️ Scoring

  • Point value: Enter the full point value for getting this answer correct (see More options section below)

  • Alternate answers: If alternate answers are acceptable (for instance, if there are multiple correct answers), click the + button. Each set of alternates can be valued at different point levels (but Correct must be the highest point value).(see More options section below for more information).

  • Match all possible responses: If all Alternates are equivalent, check Match all possible responses, and the Correct answer or any Alternate will be awarded full credit.

  • Scoring Type:

    • 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).
