Use the short answer question type to create a fill-in-the-blank question. You can add fill-in-the-blank questions to a publisher-supplied quiz, such as the summative quizzes that you'll often find at the the end of chapters, or to quizzes that you create from scratch.

If you're creating a quiz from scratch, start from your home page and go through the usual steps to add a new quiz. Enter any information you'd like into the Basic Information and/or Settings tabs. When you're ready, proceed to the Questions tab.

If you're adding a question to a publisher-supplied quiz, open the quiz from your home page and select Questions from the Edit drop-down menu.

From the Create drop-down menu, select Short Answer.


Type more than three consecutive underline characters to create one or more blanks.

You can create one or more blanks by typing more than three consecutive underline/underscore characters (_).


Provide the answer for each blank.

In this example, the blank labeled "1" maps to the answer labeled "A," and the blank labeled "2" maps to the answer labeled "B."


Click Save.

When you're done, click Save.
