When presented in Quizalize the question appears like this:
Questions with Multiple Correct Answers
You can create a quiz question with multiple correct answers by typing multiplem:// within the 'Correct Answer' field, followed by your correct answers, separated with a colon (:).
For example: multiplem://Penguin:Ostrich
Students answering this question would be able to select either 'Penguin' or 'Ostrich' to successfully answer the question.
Questions with Multiple Weighted Answers
Weighted question types allow you to set a score for each question which is double the value you state for each of the 5 possible responses: Strongly Agree; Agree; Neutral; Disagree; and Strongly Disagree.
Type multiplem:// into the 'Correct Answer' field followed by the weighted responses in this format: Strongly Disagree|value: Disagree|value: Neutral|value: Agree|value: Strongly Agree|value (see example above).
Multiple Choice Questions with an Image Header
To upload an image which will appear at the top of your quiz question simply enable 'Use Images' mode and upload an image from your documents or URL.
In Quizalize the question will appear like this:
Multiple Choice Questions with Image Answers
To incorporate images into your quiz answers, find an image you want to use, then either save it in your documents and 'Upload a picture' in Quizalize, or right-click on the image, copy the image address and in Quizalize 'Add image by URL'.
Ensure "Use Images" mode is enabled.
Next 'Copy Image Address' from the uploaded image and paste it in the 'Correct Answer' field or 'Incorrect Answer' field.
Remove https://uploads.quizalize.com/ for each URL and replace with '#' (see example below).
The image at the top can then be deleted and the process can be repeated for the images required in each field.
Note: Any image left at the top of the question once it has been saved will appear when the students engage in the quiz (see below).
Scrambled letter questions help to build vocabulary. Place scrambled:// followed by the correct answer into the 'Correct Answer' field (see above).
When the students engage with this quiz question the letters will be scrambled (see example below).
This feature allows students to order numbers or words. Type jumble:// into the 'Correct Answer' field followed by your sequence of numbers or words in the correct order, separated by commas.
For example: jumble://2,4,6,8 will appear as shown below.
To create True/False questions simply place boolean://true in the correct answer field.
