You can evaluate your learners’ progress with tests. Here are the question types you can choose from:
- Multiple choice: A form of an objective assessment. Learners are asked to select only correct answers from a list of choices.
- Fill the gap: It consists of a phrase, sentence, or paragraph with a blank space where the learner provides the missing word(s).
- Ordering: A learner places the answers in the correct order.
- Drag-and-drop: Learners are asked to match together pairs of information.
- Free text: Learners insert their answer as text.
- Randomized: They consist of questions drawn randomly from a pool of handpicked items.
- Import: Import the questions you’ve already created outside the platform in GIFT or AIKEN format.
