Questions and Question Groups
Questions can be created in two ways:
- independently in the question bank
- directly within a lesson or assessment when adding a question component
For the two methods, the process of creating the question is the same.
When you create a question in the question bank, you must then add the question to one or more lessons or assessments.
When you create a question within a lesson or an assessment, that question is automatically added to the lesson or assessment.
In addition, you can create a question group that groups a set of questions around some contextual material or just to make it easier to add a number of questions as a set.
You can get statistics on questions to improve the course.
To get started with questions, go to Create > Questions.
On this page, you will see a bank of questions along with buttons to add new questions.
The screenshot below is a truncated screenshot of a bank of 15 questions.
For each question, you can see
- its description
- what question groups it belongs to (if any)
- what lessons and assessments it has been added to
- when it was last modified
- whether it is a multiple choice (MC) or a short answer (SA) question
Together, the bank and the buttons just above it let you:
- create questions
- filter questions
- preview questions
- edit existing questions
- add questions to question groups
There are four ways to create questions. Click the options below to learn more.
- add a new multiple choice question
- add a new short answer question
- import GIFT questions
- clone an existing question
You can use the Filter button near the top right of the page to filter questions in the bank.
Clicking Filter opens a dialog with options for filtering:
You can preview a question to see how it will appear to students.
Click the icon next to the question that you want to preview.
You can edit a question by clicking on its description.
Add to Question Groups
Click the icon in the Question Groups column to add the question to an existing question group.
Course Builder Analytics for Questions
Go to Manage > Questions to run the statistics on questions.
To collect and view this data, your course must set up for Course Builder analytics. Learn more about Course Builder Analytics.
