How to create a quiz

You can create fill-in-the-blank questions in "text format" or "table format" way.
 

  • text
  • Excel
  • Quiz/exam creation form

  • The first line, starting with #, is the setting for the entire quiz.
  • The first line of each block is the question text. The part of the question text that is closed with {} is the part where the player can make a hole.
  • The second line is fixed and becomes "wordbank:".
  • The third and subsequent lines contain the correct answer choices, starting with the correct answers in the order in which you punched the holes with {} in the first line of the question. If you want to include dummy answers, start adding them after all the correct answers have been written.

In the following example, the first question is "Read the example sentences and rearrange them in the correct order.<br>I love music."<br>{1}{2}{3}"
The correct answer choices are {1} for "I", {2} for "like", and {3} for "music". *<br>means a new line.<sub>displays the text as a subscript.
