If your quiz questions (including answers and explanations) need numbers, there are four question types you may consider:
- Number question
- Likert scale question
- Table number question
- Read-only question (for a set of questions)
1. Number question
Students' answers are numbers. You can choose either the correct number (with a margin of error) or range of correct answers. If there is only a single answer, include '0' as the margin of error.
2. Likert scale question
Students need to give the correct answer by using a sliding scale.
Before you submit your question, you can type in "explanation of the correct answer" and "feedback to any other answer" (see below). Hit the "submit" button when you finish it.
This is how your scale question looks like from the student's perspective.
3. Table number question
Similar to a number question, but provides the option for multiple inputs using rows and columns.
4. Read-only question (for a set of questions)
This 'question' type is useful for including instructions, story, or problem that applies to multiple questions, and it does not collect responses from the student. It is a rich text box that can include text and images.
