Standard Multiple Choice Items

Hotspot Items

Hotspot Items will include a graphic with several clickable areas, or “hotspots,” as choices for your response. To answer our example Hotspot Item, place your mouse over the correct spot on the figure and click.

Drag and Drop Items

Drag and Drop Items will ask you to correctly place items from the left column into the right column in sequential order. To answer our example Drag and Drop Item place your mouse over the item you would like to place; then click and drag it to the correct position in the right column.

Multi-Select Items

Multi-Select Items ask you to select all responses that are correct for a given question. The question will specify how many correct answers there are.
