Missing word question format

Jump to: navigation, search

Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.2. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Missing word question format.

The missing word format can be imported into Question bank and into a Lesson.

This format only supports multiple choice questions and short answer question, depending on the number of answers. One answer generates a short answer question, two or more answers generate a multiple choice question. Each answer is separated with a tilde (~), and the correct answer is prefixed with an equals sign (=). Here is an example of a multiple choice question:

   As soon as we begin to explore our body parts as infants we become students of {=anatomy and physiology ~reflexology ~science ~experiment}, and in a sense we remain students for life. 

Here is an example of a short answer question:

You can use the missing word format to import questions into both Moodle's Question bank and {=Lesson} activity.

Note

As of [http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-21885 MDL-21885] issue filed, the Multiple Choice questions importing don't work. The Short Answers work properly.
