Removed : "Note As of MDL-21885 issue filed, the Multiple Choice questions importing don't work. The Short Answers work properly." - The issue closed in 2012, affected M 1.9.7 ..., Maybe we can remove it ..? Or copy it into the Comments, or something ? I've just tested the imports under 3.11, and both SA and MC questions imported OK. Cf. discussion in https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-77729)

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.

Each question should best be placed in a single line of text. Consecutive questions should be separated with a blank line.
