Matching questions provide a list of sub-questions along with a list of answers. The respondent must "match" the correct answers with each question.
Example of a matching question:
Create a New Matching Question
- In the Question Bank, select the desired question category, then click Create a new question... and choose Matching. The Adding a question screen will open.
- Give the question a descriptive name - this makes it easy to identify it in the question bank. The question name is not visible to students.
- Enter a question in the Question text field to tell the students what they are matching (such as "Match the invention to its inventor"). Images, audio, and video can also be inserted into this field using the HTML editor toolbar.
- Set the Default question grade (i.e. the maximum number of marks for this question).
- For Question 1, enter the question (First matching term) and a matching answer in the Answer field.
- Fill in at least three questions and answers. You can provide extra wrong answers by giving an answer with a blank question.
- Click Save changes to add the question to the category. The Question bank screen will open.
After creating a question, be sure to check to make sure the question works correctly. Click the magnifying glass icon next to the question in the Question bank to view a preview of the new question.
