To add a matching question, select â€œMatchingâ€ from the pull-down menu. This will take you to the matching question editing screen:
Fill out a question name that you will recognize, and then write the â€œbigâ€ question â€“ this is the introduction the student sees in the â€œquestion textâ€ field. This could be â€œMatch the following questions with the correct answers,â€ or â€œMatch the name of the president with the year he was elected,â€ or anything else you like. Note that you can add an image, assign the default question grade, apply a penalty factor and include general feedback. You then need to fill in at least 3 questions that will be matched to the answers you provide. The â€œquestionsâ€ can be one word to be matched to the answer. Each matching part is worth an equal amount (if you have four matches, each is worth 25% of the whole question. The whole question then can be weighted on the quiz â€“ more on weighting later).
