  5. Click on Question bank triangle

  6. Click on Categories to help organize your questions

  7. Choose the Parent Category and then the Name for the Category you will make. NOTE THIS IS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE WINDOW when you have MANY questions. A good structure is to choose a topic as the Parent Category and then make subcategories by the type of question (MC, Calculated, Vocab).

  11. Fill in all the required (in red) parts for your question type.

  12. Multiple Choice Question It is a good idea to make the Question Name the same as the actual question.

  13. You can have as many multiple choice answers as you want At least ONE choice must have a point value. I usually have ONE = 100% and the rest 0% but you can choose.

  14. Matching Questions You can have as many question/answer pairs as you want BUT they see ALL the choices. I find about 6 is plenty for one matching question.

  15. Creating Calculated Questions • Define your variables. In our example, mass and KE are the variables. Brackets { } define the variables

  16. Creating Calculated Questions • Default Question Grade. Determines how many points this problem is worth

  17. Creating Calculated Questions • Penalty Factor. If you set your quiz to adaptive mode, it is the penalty for missing during the quiz for each attempt. With 0.1, the student can answer it 9 times and still get partial credit.

  18. Creating Calculated Questions • General Feedback. If you fill in this box, the students will receive feedback after submitting their answers. This can be hints or formulas.

  19. Creating Calculated Questions • Correct Answer Formula: Type in the equation that will solve the problem. • Grade: Choose 100%. This indicates this solution gives the correct answer.
