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.
To add images to Multiple Choice answers, click the empty image container to the left of the answer field:
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.
