ENGAGE STUDENTS WITH EVERY QUESTION
Have you ever wanted to integrate a YouTube video into a weekly quiz to hook students? Or add an audio clip for them to listen to and then respond? Maybe you just wanted to have an ordered list or a table with data in your question stem or as potential answer choices. You can incorporate all these and more when creating or editing a question in Edulastic.
Spice up the questions you create with the Text Editor. Using the Text Editor you can improve clarity and enhance the quality of your questions by adding features that appeal to a generation of learners who are at home with tech-based interaction.
WHAT IS THE TEXT EDITOR?
The Text Editor is a tool that includes 21 features you can use to glitz up your own questions. It allows you to format your question stem and the answer options with fonts, images, hyperlinks, multimedia clips and other features that can make the question more interactive and visually stimulating.
TEXT EDITOR IN EVERY QUESTION TYPE
When you are authoring any question type in Edulastic and click inside a text box, the Text Editor appears. Begin typing and insert or format, the way you would a Word doc or the equivalent. If you hover over the icon, you will see a description of what it does. You can also use the legend below for a quick reference.
