Question Types

I spotted a conversation between Dave and Dafydd over on the SchoolHistory.co.uk forum, about question types in quizzes. These guys are two of Yacapaca’s most prolific authors, so if they don’t know, we have clearly not got the message across. So for reference, here’s the complete list. Bookmark it now for future reference!

The Yacapaca objective-assessment question types

These are the question types that can be compiled into quizzes and multiple-choice surveys.

Choose-1

The original multiple choice question. Two to six options.

Checkbox

Two to six checkboxes, none, some or all of which need to be selected to earn the mark. Students earn half a mark for one incorrect box, quarter mark for two, and so forth.

Cloze

AKA “gap fill”. You can specify multiple correct answers, and also target specific incorrect answers with feedback relevant to that particular mistake. Matching methods include case-tolerant and fuzzy match.

Pair match (Drag’n’drop)

Students match two to six pairs of items. You can also use this to test for sequence.

Location

Students select a point on an image such as a map or diagram. Selection inside the area you define earns the point.

Drag’n’drop Cloze

Students drag one out of two to six option words into a sentence.
