Gapfill question type
It is possible to select dropdown or gapfill mode. Dropdown shows a list of all possible answers in each field and gapfill shows only an empty field with no list of options to select.
By default marking is not case sensitive. So if the student enters CAT in a field of the form [cat] it will be considered correct. The editing form has an option to make an individual question case sensitive.
Each (correct) field is worth exactly 1 mark, so The [cat] sat on the [mat] has a maximum possible score of 2 marks. There is no concept of negative marking. The question supports the standard behaviours, hinting and combined feedback options.
The editing form offers a field for adding wrong or distractor options. These only make sense in dragdrop or dropdown mode. Wrong answers must be entered as a comma delimited list.
It is possible to use regular expressions in answers, for example if you wanted both the use and UK spelling of colour as an answer you could add a field as What [color|colour] is the sky? More complex regular expressions should also work.
This question was designed to be simpler to use than the core Cloze question type. https://docs.moodle.org/24/en/Embedded_Answers_(Cloze)_question_type
However it has many, many fewer features.
