* Stem & Response, or ‘question’ & response
In this tutorial you will:
Format an MS-Word Stem & Response (S&R) list for import into TurningPoint
Import the MS-Word S&R list into TurningPoint using the Parse command in Tools on the Turning Point toolbar
Edit imported questions as needed
Formatting an MS-Word S&R list for import into TurningPoint
Open a new, blank MS-Word document; save it with a suitable filename
Click on Format, then Styles and Formatting.
This is what you see…
Now begin typing your S&R items, as in this example. When you are done, define all stems (questions) as heading 1, and all answers as Heading 2.
Highlight the stem of the first question; then click on Heading1.
Highlight the answer options for the first question; then click on Heading2.
Repeat for all stems/questions and answer options. Don’t forget to save your Word document!
These questions are ready to be imported into a TurningPoint presentation.
Parsing your MS-Word S&R Document
Open TurningPoint. Click on Tools in the TP toolbar; then TurningPoint Parser.
Browse, find, highlight and click open the MS-Word document with your questions.
Answer this prompt as you desire. We’ll click Yes, so that the imported (parsed) slides follow…
You might want to reformat this slide e.g., to make all of the response options ‘one-liners’!
Final Notes on Parsing
Questions in MS-Word can be tagged for import as demographic, with correct answer indicated or other identifiers.
Test bank .XML files from publishers can be converted (imported) to TurningPoint using parser.
