Question Types

True or false (T/F) questions present a statement which respondents must determine is correct or incorrect.

Multiple choice (M/C) questions present a statement or question with a list of possible answers, in which respondents must choose the best possible answer. Multiple choice questions differ from multi-select questions in that you can only select one answer for each multiple choice question.

Multi-select (M-S) questions require respondents to identify one or more correct answers in a list of possible answers. Unlike multiple choice (MC) questions, multi-select questions enable you to choose a grading format and allow users to select more than one answer.

Long answer (LA) questions require respondents to write detailed answers in response to open-ended questions. You can enable users to respond in multiple sentences, paragraph answers, or mathematical explanations and calculations. Users can also respond in HTML code. Long answer questions are not auto-graded.

Short answer (SA) questions require respondents to create one word or brief sentence answers in response to open-ended questions. SA questions can be auto-graded: Auto-grading searches for a matching character pattern in the answer text.

Multi-short answer (MSA) questions require respondents to answer a multi-solution question and input their answers into individual input boxes. MSA questions can be auto-graded: Auto-grading searches for a matching character pattern in the answer text. Respondent’s answers are checked against each possible answer stored in the answer fields.

Fill in the blanks (FIB) questions require respondents to fill in one or more missing words for an incomplete sentence, statement, phrase, or list. FIB questions can be auto-graded: Auto-grading searches for a matching character pattern in the answer text. As a best practice, D2L recommends that answers in blank fields be no more than one or two words to ensure auto-grading accuracy. Your listed order of blank and text fields corresponds with the sequence displayed to users.

Matching (MAT) questions require respondents to choose from a set of possible match choices from drop-down lists and correctly pair them with related items. This question type enables you to assess users’ recognition of information and demonstrate comprehension of specific relationships.

Ordering (ORD) questions require respondents to arrange a series of items into a correct sequence or order.

Arithmetic (2+2) questions enable you to assess users’ knowledge and comprehension of mathematics and number theory. You can ensure each respondent receives a unique question by including variables enclosed with curly braces that randomly generate numbers within the problem.

Significant Figures (x10) questions require respondents to answer in scientific notation and provide solutions that contain a specified number of significant figures. Math and science courses commonly use this question type. You can ensure each respondent receives a unique question by including variables enclosed with curly braces that randomly generate scientific notations within the problem.

Likert (LIK [in Surveys]) questions to measure subjective information such as personal opinions, knowledge, abilities, and attitudes. Likert questions enable you to create surveys that evaluate the intensity of respondents’ feelings towards statements presented to them.
