WordPress Courseware Plugin supports the following Quiz question formats:

  • True/False
  • Multiple Choice
  • Open-ended
  • File Upload
  • ‘Pool’ Questions – Re-use a Question from your Question Pool
  • Random Questions – Based on Question Tags

Question Hints
For each question, you have the option to add a ‘hint’ which appears before the student has submitted an answer to the Quiz Question.

Question Explanations
For each question, you have the option to add an ‘explanation’ which will display to the student after an answer is submitted to explain why the correct answer is correct.

Question ‘Tags’
For each question, you have the option to add ‘tags’ to help organize your questions in the ‘Question Pool’ and to assist you in adding ‘Random Questions’ (see below).

Question Pools
By default, WordPress Courseware Plugin adds all Questions you create to the ‘Question Pool.’ This lets you re-use questions in any number of Quizzes.

To see the Question Pool, go to Training Courses > Question Pool

Random Questions
If you choose to add a ‘Random Question’ to your Quiz (by clicking on “Add Random Questions” from your ‘Question Tools’ Panel), you will have the option to add a random question from your Question Pool based on a specific ‘tag.’ Or, you can pool a random question/s from the entire Question Pool.
