Multiple choice

Student's pick the word that is spelt correctly from a list of options. For example:

  • Students pick the correct answer from two words that are pronounced in the same way but have a different spelling and meaning.
  • Students are shown several options, and they need to choose the correct (or incorrect) spelling based on a paragraph, statement, or image.

It's often said that choosing the correct word tests help with reading more than spelling. Students are able to get the answer right by recognizing the correct word instead of using memory recall to write the word from scratch.

The most popular way to create this question is by using the multiple-choice format with a single answer option.

Students type their answer, such as a letter, word, or phrase into a box.

You can create questions with single or multiple spaces for answers to be added.

In addition to helping with spelling, fill-in-the-blanks also tests that the words make sense grammatically.

Top tip! Enterprise members can contact us for CSS code that enables you to change the answer box size.
