What kind of question types do we have? 

Multiple choice questions

Multiple choice questions are definitely our most popular option

Multiple choice questions are definitely our most popular option! Our online Exam builder allows regular text questions. You can also add an image, video, or audio to your text question to clarify and support the content!

Our answering format also offers many options. On the one hand, you can use a simple yes or no answer format. Or you can create questions with up to ten answers. It's up to you if you allow multiple correct answers.

It is also possible to vary the answer format. Instead of adding text answers, you can use an image answer to test specific visual knowledge. Small, medium and large images are possible. Combining text and images in your Exam gives you the best of both worlds!

Fill in the blanks questions 

Get an excellent impression of how your employees master the training material

With our fill in the blank questions, you get an excellent impression of how your employees master the training material! A fill in the blank question is essentially a more challenging version of a multiple choice question. Instead of choosing the correct answer, they need to come up on their own and write a short simple answer. It makes it a lot harder for them to guess the right answer! 

Our tool identifies the correct answer based on the answers you enter into the system. You can set a percentage of deviation to the answer, which means that types and spelling mistakes are considered too. So, if the answer to your question is Easy LMS and someone types Easy LSM, it is still correct. 

The main advantage of fill in the blanks is grading the Exam happens automatically. In contrast to free text questions.

Combining these in-depth free text questions with multiple choice or fill in the blanks questions gives you a comprehensive insight into your employees' knowledge!
