About Manual Questions
Manual Questions allow you to create questions and answers outside of the Topic grid. With manual questions, you can create a question and answer set completely from scratch, just as if you were writing a traditional test. You can create Manual Questions for all question types supported in the MLevel Platform.
Creating Manual Questions
- Login to Mission Manager (https://missions.mlevel.com).
- Click the Game Questions tab.
- Click Create New.
- Select Multiple Choice, Drag & Drop, Image Hotspot, Basic Image, or True/False depending on which type of question you want to create.
Create a Multiple Choice question manually by entering a Question, a Correct Answer, and Wrong Answers.
Answer Minimums: A Multiple choice question requires a minimum of one correct and one incorrect answer.
Adding Answer Images
Images can be added to Multiple Choice answers only. True/False answers will use the systems default True/False imagery.

Create a True/False question manually by entering a statement, and selecting whether the statement is true or false.
Answer Minimums: A True/False question requires a minimum of one statement that is flagged as either True or False.
Drag & Drop
You can create a Multiple Correct answer question in a similar fashion to a Multiple Choice question, except that you need to provide multiple correct answers. One important thing to remember is that MLevel randomly displays the answers - you can ask the user to list them in a specific order, but the platform will not be able to confirm they did.
Answer Minimums: A Drag & Drop question requires a minimum of two correct and one incorrect answer.
What are Tags?
You can tag Manual Questions with an existing Item or create a new Topic and Item to use as a tag. You might recall when using a Topic grid, you see the Topic's Items in the Analytics Tool. Since Manual Questions don't leverage a Topic directly, we use Tags to associate Manual Questions to the Analytics. When creating a new Manual Question, you can "link" the question to a "Tag" aka, an Item.
The Tag Distribution chart shows how many questions pertain to each tag/item. Hover over the chart to see how many questions relate to each tag.
Image Based Questions
- You can also ask Image Based Questions image based questions - click this article for a walkthrough on how those work.
You can add feedback to the answers for manual questions*. In the box under the correct or incorrect answer text you can input text that the learner would see upon selecting that answer choice.
*Drag & Drop questions do not support feedback.
For multiple choice and basic image questions, you have the option to apply the feedback to all correct or incorrect answer options. This is done by clicking the "apply feedback for all (incorrect)" text below the feedback text box.
