Creating an Advanced Question
The advanced question feature allows you to enter questions that have multiple parts or special features that are hard to include in other types of questions, such as images, equations, etc.
Choose the LaunchPad unit in which you want to create a quiz (in this case, Unit 4). Click "Add to this unit" and then "Create new" from the drop-down menu.
Title your quiz, and add a subtitle or directions as needed. Select "Save." You'll see a green checkmark letting you know your quiz has been saved.
Type your question into the textbox that says “click here and start typing.” There are several features available in the advanced question editor that you can use when you write your question. These tools are displayed in the toolbar at the top of the page.
To add a hyperlink, highlight the text you wish to hyperlink, click on the link symbol, and enter the URL of the website you wish to hyperlink. Then click “Insert.”
To add a picture, click on the symbol of the tree and enter the image URL into the appropriate box. The image should appear under the “Preview” box. Then press “Insert.”
To add an equation, click on the equation symbol on the tool bar. Enter the equation into the window that appears. When you are done, press “submit.”
When you are ready to add an answer to your question, press the “Insert Response Area” icon on the toolbar. From the drop-down menu that appears, choose the type of response you wish to insert (in this case, “Text”).
Enter your answer into the text box provided, click the “Save” icon next to the text, and then click “Save.”
You can add a hint to your question by pressing the “Add Hint” button. A textbox will appear in which you can add a hint that your students can view when taking the quiz.
You can add another step in the advanced question maker by clicking “Add Step” at the bottom of the Question Editor.
If you are creating a multiple step problem, you can add a final solution by clicking on the “Add Solution” button at the bottom of the Question Editor and entering your solution into the text box that appears.
When you are finished writing your question, click “Save” at the bottom of the question editor. A green check mark will appear indicating your question correctly saved.
