Under Development: Custom Exam Updates

Posted On: 10/22/21

Assessments are essential to evaluating student comprehension of the material and the Create an Exam feature is a flexible assessment tool that teachers use in a variety of ways. Based on feedback from teachers like you, we’re making some updates to the Custom Exam tool that will be released in February 2022!

What Changes Will Teachers See to the Custom Exams?

In the existing Custom Question Editor, multiple choice is the only question type available.

In the new Custom Question Editor, you will find five types of questions:

  • Standard Multiple Choice
  • Multiple Choice with Multiple Response
  • True or False
  • Fill in the Blank
  • Classify, Match, & Order

These new question types will allow teachers to write questions that have more than one correct answer, challenge students to type in answers, have students label images, and match items that belong together.

  • Quickly make changes, get help, and preview your questions
  • Drag answers to change the order instead of retyping
  • Add as many options as you need

In addition, any custom questions you add to an exam will be differentiated to make it easier for you to identify them when looking at your exams.

We’re excited to provide you with this new flexibility in creating your exams and can’t wait to see how you use it in 2022!
