General options are available for all question types. These options are listed and detailed here.
There are several ways of automatically marking questions.
Manually marked questions are simpler - they only require a max score.
Threshold levels (requires activation)
Calculate marks on questions by using threshold levels. Available on all automatically marked questions except Matching/Pairing, Drag and drop, Hotspot and Code compile.
Bands and Criteria (requires activation)
Award marks by using bands and criteria. This feature is available for the question types Essay and Oral.
All questions can make use of illustrative media in the heading. You can use the following media:
- Image (supported formats: *.jpg, *.gif, *.png)
- Code (ie. embed code from Youtube to show a video)
When in edit mode in a question, choose "Main illustration" in the menu to the right of the question. Default is set to "None". Choose either "Image" or "Embed code".
While the player will resize the image for the students, keep in mind that larger images will take longer to load, and that scaling the image before adding it is recommended. A width of around 800 pixels is recommended
Attach a PDF. The PDF will not be visible in question edit mode, please preview your question to ensure it is displayed correctly. The PDF will be shown to the left of the question, and the student can resize the panel.
If the question has several language versions, the PDF must be added to each translation (whether it requires translation or not).
A PDF added to the PDF panel is not possible to download, even in open browser tests. If the PDF should be possible to download, we recommend that you use "Insert file" from the toolbar in the question editor.
Use labels to tag your questions with, for example, specific subjects. You can later use the labels to easily find your questions in the question bank.
General options for interaction elements
The external identifier is a string that uniquely identifies the question. This identifier has no purpose internally in Inspera Assessment but is for use in any external system that collects data on the question.
The identifier can be changed but it is initially generated automatically on each question.
