Add New Question (Create a Question)
To get started, click Add New Question. Qmaker allows for multiple choice (up to 7 choices), matching (up to 10 pairs), select all that apply (up to 10 choice), or write in answers.
At any time you can save your completed questions to a '.qjb' file that you can open later to resume the project.
Open an existing '.qjb' file with
question(s). You can
also combine multiple past quizzes by using the 'Add Questions from
File to Existing Questions' button that appears once you have a
question completed in the current quiz.
an interactive question such as the ones on the GSS site, just create a
single question and leave the default settings (no score screen and
not a test). This will allow for a question to be put on a site
that will simply give comments or feedback to students' answers.
To put an interactive question on your website
Once you have completed making an interactive question with Qmaker, you can embed question on your web page by
With Qmaker you can create a scored
test or quiz that will store the students' answers
and scores and then email them to you in a format suitable for pasting into a spreadsheet. To set up a test, make
all of the questions and select the 'Make Quiz into Test' checkbox. Then enter your email address into the email field and click
'Publish Test and Email Results' to create the test. This may take a
little while as it creates the test in the database. A popup will then
appear with the HTML snippet that you can embed on your website for
the students to take the test. To get the results of the test, go to
the page where you embedded the test applet and type your same email
address that you gave before into the "Name" field and it will send all
results to that email address.
On a Google site, you must use
an embed gadget to attach the question or test. Edit the page, choose
the insert option, click 'more gadgets', and then search for the
'Embed Gadget'. Add the Embed Gadget to the page and paste the html
snippet into the Embed Gadget. Save the changes and the question or
test will now be present on the page.
An image can be placed in the question in the form <<imageurl>> at the very beginning of the question replacing 'imageurl' with the url to the image. It will show up in the question as a resized thumbnail that when clicked will popup the full image. Images can also be embedded into answer comments in the same way. Only one image is allowed per comment.
Putting web links into feedback comments
In feedback comments, you also have the option of adding links to external pages in the form <<<name:url>>> immediately following the image if used otherwise at the very beginning of the comment. The link will show up as a button in the comment with the given 'name' on it and it will link to the 'url'. Do not put spaces between the embedded links or image. You can embed as many links as you like.
