LearnUpon has 6 different question styles available, for creating question pools for exams. Within a course, you create a question pool, and add questions to the pool for an exam.
This feature is available to all customers.
Within a question pool, you create questions to test your learners' knowledge. You assign point values to the questions for correct answers.
You can provide feedback to explain the answers. Depending on your formatting settings you can provide responses for individual answers, or overall to address the question.
The rich text editor, called CK Editor, lets you upload images or videos, so you can base your questions around the visual content. See Use the rich text editor.
If you have enhanced question editing turned on in your portal, you can use the rich text editor to format your answers as well as your questions.
See Exam options, for ways to vary a pool of questions: for example, by randomizing their order.
By default, true/false questions offer 2 options. You enter a statement in the text editor, and assign the correct answer as true, or as false. The following screenshot shows a sample true/false question.
Similar to true/false, you enter a question and provide 1 correct answer, and up to 3 incorrect answers. The following screenshot shows an example with 3 answers total.
Another choice question: you enter a statement in the text editor, and can assign multiple answers, in any combination of correct and incorrect answers.
You enter a question, and a choice of multiple answers, for learners to rearrange into a specific order, according to the question.
The correct answer is the order you enter the choices in the question: LearnUpon changes the order for learners. Make sure your list is in the correct order when you write the question.
The following 2 screenshots show a sample question and answers.
You enter an instruction, and provide 2 lists for learners to match from one list to another: for example, matching capital cities to the correct countries, or planets to their moons.
To avoid common errors with this format:
- each answer must be a unique value. For example, if you have a question to match cities to countries and include Paris more than once in the answer options, you get an error
- for YES/NO questions, use the true/false question format
- for questions with more than 1 correct answer, use the multiple correct question format
The following 2 screenshots show a match list question, and its answers.
Fill in the blanks
This question provides instructions in the CK Editor, to create a field for a missing word in a sentence. You provide the correct answer, and also the missing-word dropdown options.
