Overview of Test Sections/Question Types

When creating a test in Remark Test Grading Cloud Edition, you have three different types of questions you can choose from: Multiple Choice, Open Response and Math. This information is covered in greater detail for each section, but the following provides an overview.

  1. Select the desired class and then click New Test.
    1. These sections can be added to your test by clicking the “Add” drop down button.
  2. Clicking the “Multiple Choice” option adds multiple choice questions, with your choice of question properties and design. There is a maximum of 360 questions allowed in a single section. You get to choose the number of answer choices for each question, what those answer choices are, and if you want those choices to alternate between questions.

             In this example, we have 250 questions, 4 answer choices and alternating choices between my questions. (ABCD for odd and EFGH for even questions). Note that there are other options for laying out questions with question and answer text.

             Here is what the multiple choice section designed in the step before looks like. This section can span multiple pages if there are a large number of questions.

   5. Clicking the Open Response option adds an open response section, with your choice of question properties and design. You have the choice of how many points the question is worth, as well as some custom formatting of the question, such as how you would like the question to appear. You can have just bubbles to enter the earned points, bubbles with a write-in box for the student, or just a write-in box, in which case you will grade the question online after the tests are processed.

For this question, we chose to have a write-in box and eight horizontal rows.

Here is an example of what this question would look like on a test.


 4. Clicking the “Math” option will add a math section, with your choice of question properties and design. For a math section, you determine the response length and orientation of the answer. You also determine which bubble choices to allow in your responses; such as a negative sign, a fraction slash or a decimal point. Another option is whether you would like the question number and write-in underscores to be included.

For this example, we added a 3-digit response, which included a negative sign, fraction slash and decimal point bubbles. Also, the question is a vertical orientation and shows the question number and write-in underscores. (Question 1, below).
