In a recent post, I explained how it was possible to add your own incorrect answers for use in the multi-match activities in textivate.
This essentially means that you can create multiple-choice quizzes or tests. You can even specify whether the questions should be presented in sequence or in random order.
Here's an example. (I've protected the resource, so you can't get back to the original to get the answers):
And another one. This millionaire activity only uses 12 of the questions, selected at random:
For the resource used in the above examples I specified one correct answer and four incorrect answers for each question. You don't have to specify this many incorrect answers. If there aren't enough specified wrong answers for the activity that you are doing, the remaining wrong answers are taken from the rest of the questions in the resource. See this exercise below, for example, which has 10 possible answers to choose from:
You can also include a mutli-choice activity in a textivate sequence based on one or more activities. The sequence below has 2 activities:
- The same 1 in 10 activity as featured in the example above.
- A fill in the letters activity, where only the word shape is provided.
You'll note from the above example that, just because you've added extra wrong answers in order to generate a multiple choice quiz, this doesn't stop any of the other activities being available to you. A few more are provided below:
