And that is voting for the question type you want us to implement in easygenerator! You have probably noticed that we are working hard on adding extra features to our authoring tool. On May 6th we will bring out another update, with a lot of usability changes and extra templates. We do want users to be involved in the development of our tool and therefore we decided on this road map series of blog posts. There’s only one thing you need to do and that is to vote for the question type you want to see in easygenerator
Decide what new question type will be added.
Easygenerator has been working hard at adding extra features to the Starter authoring tool on live.easygenerator.com. There will be another update on May 6 that includes lots of usability changes and extra templates.
The current Starter edition only has one question type — multiple choice/multiple select. Based on user feedback, we will split this into two separate question types– multiple choice (one correct answer) and multiple select (more than one correct answer).
So the question is, what question types should be added? Outlined below are the possible question types and options. For each question type there is a short description and in some cases, there is an image with a question example (these are taken from easygenerator’s Plus edition).
The learner is presented with text and is asked to fill in words by typing or selecting them from a list.
Multiple Choice Images
The user is shown several images and must choose which image is correct. There is only one correct answer. See the sample multiple choice images question about choosing the correct template for adaptive learning.
The learner has to type in a text (for example a sentence) that will be compared with the correct text.
A statement question is also known as a correct/ incorrect question because it ??? . The learner is presented with a statement and a list of options. For each option, the learner can choose correct or incorrect, or Yes or No (as in agree or disagree). The image below shows how the statement question looks.
In the image below, the learner identifies one, or several specific spots on an image by clicking on the right location(s).
Drag and drop question
The learner drags images or texts to the correct location of another image, or drags outlined steps to reorder a process into its correct sequence.
The learner is presented with two lists of words and is asked to match the words that go together (as can be seen below) or to match up a word with its definition.
Similar to text matching, the learner is presented with two images and is asked to match the correct images.
Ranking question text
There will be a list of text on the screen, the learner has to put them in the correct order.
A survey question where the leaner selects an answer that shows levels of agreement or non agreement with a specific statement.
A question where the leaner types in an answer that will be scored by the teacher after submission.
