How to add a review
Assessments are tests that you can create within a unit of your course, in the Virtual Learning Environment, to test students' knowledge.
In this topic some models are available, they are:
Prepare a question, put the answer options and define which will be the correct answer (Example: alternative A, B, C or D);
Develop the question and use the [...] square brackets to enter answer options. When to use | to offer multiple answers, the first must be correct. For example:
The quick brown [fox] jumps over the lazy [dog].
The [largest|largest] planet in our solar system is [Jupiter|neptune|the earth].
Prepare the question, and write the answers in the right order, these will be shuffled so that the student puts them in the correct order to get the right answer.
Drag and drop
Elaborate the question and put the answers in pairs. These pairs of answers will be shuffled so that the student can put them together correctly.
Develop the question and add keywords along with the amount of points a given word will be worth. Also define the limit of points that the student must reach with the answer. You can set how many points are earned or lost based on specific keywords in the response. The answer is considered correct if the accumulated points are equal to or greater than the determined limit.
The “Random” option can be used to add existing questions, just create a name for it and select the questions that will be part of this group, so every time this question is presented, a random question will be used.
