Fill In The Blank
Back - Check All That Apply Up - Questions Next - Numeric Response
In addition to the common question definition controls, the options to the left offer specific control over fill-in-the-blank question presentation and evaluation.

You may specify the size of the box provided for the participant to enter their response. Please note that boxes that are more than one line high will not be automatically scored and considered an essay question.

For text responses, you may enter one or more correct answers in the space provided. Each correct answer word or phrase should appear on a line by itself. The case sensitive checkbox controls the sensitivity of the comparison between the participant's response and your entries.

You can enter point awards and custom feedback in the spaces provided for correct and incorrect participant response. In order for this feedback to be shown, the appropriate options in Step#4 - Submit Actions must be set. That is, you must enable the issuing of feedback for your assessment. Point awards must be positive integer numbers.

Expert Feature - custom feedback links
If you are versed in HTML, the language of web page design, you may include links to remedial material in your custom feedback. This permits the construction of powerful tutorials using Test Pilot. For example, if a participant gets a question wrong, hyperlinks may be included in your custom feedback that, when clicked upon, will take the user to a web site where material assisting the participant in answering the question is available. A hyperlink may be entered as follows:

Click <A HREF="http://SITE/page.html">here</A> for additional help.

Substituting the appropriate URL in place of the text shgown in red. If you wanted the page openned in a new window, the link could be entered as follows:

Click <A TARGET="_new" HREF="http://SITE/page.html">here</A> for additional help.

If this assessment is being offered a question-at-a-time and you have enabled branching, additional popup menus are shown to permit defining to which question to branch upon the correctness of a participant's response. Note that the branch is executed based upon the correctness of the response and not the content of the response. This behavior is unique to fill-in-the-blank questions. It is generally recommended to first define all questions before setting up branching.


Help is Available!

    Please note that, at any time while you are editing an assessment, you can click upon the titles of the fields listed for your entries. If you do so, a pop-up window with an explanation of the items use and features will be shown.

Whenever you adjust a setting or make changes to any item, you must click an update button to record the changes.
