Questions – Advanced settings
When you’re adding a Question to your video, you’d might like to know more about the advanced options. Do you prefer to watch or read our explanation? Don’t worry about the length of the video; you can click in the menu to go to the part you’d like to see.
Multiple Choice and Multiple Response
First of all, you can determine the number of points awarded by answering the question correctly. It can be useful to shuffle the answers, unless there is some kind of sequence in your answers.
Generally, a question will not be repeated if the viewer answers the question incorrectly. If you do want the question to be shown again, you can select the ‘Ask questions again if answered incorrectly’ button. This setting overrules the action that you may have set on the specific answers (for example: ‘Jump to a specific part of the video’).
It is possible to change a Multiple Choice Question to a Multiple Response Question and vice versa. This can be quite handy if, for example, you’ve already made a Multiple Choice Question and then decide a Multiple Response would fit better. This way, you can also make an MCQ with more than one correct answer. Click here to learn how this works.
At the bottom, there are two other buttons that might be useful. When selected, the first ‘Back button’ will be shown when the question appears. When the viewer doesn’t know the answer, for instance, he can decide to go back and watch the clip again.
The second back button does the same, but will appear on the feedback screen. Therefore, the viewer can decide to watch the clip again after he knows he chose wrong.
Open Question and Entry Question
Most advanced settings are already explained above. But there is some information that apply specifically to the Entry and Open Question.
If you don’t want the viewer to skip the question easily, you can enable a minimum number of characters.
The Open Question is best suited for when you’d like viewers to give a longer answer. You can read the answers in the statistics. However, the system cannot determine which answers are correct, since everyone will write their answer in a different way. If you’d like to give the viewer feedback, you can write something like: “An example of a good answer is…” This way, the viewer can see for himself if he’s given the correct answer.
Furthermore, you can use the Open Question to collect opinions and thus create surveys.
With the Entry Question, you can put a few words before and/or after the blank. This way, you can create a sentence where the viewer has to fill in a specific word. This can be especially useful for videos about language.
In the ‘Placeholder’, you can give an instruction about how to write the answer.
