Check how your students are gaining new knowledge while reading through a longread. To do this, add and exercise — one or multiple questions which are embedded into the chapter. Learners will answer questions, receive a feedback and figure out whether they fully understood and memorized the read-through article.
To add an exercise:
1. After you hit the Edit button, the opened window appears with a preset tempalte question without any input data. To add more questions into the exercise, click Add New and choose the question type:
1) Multiple Choice — only one answer is correct.
2) Multiple Response — multiple answers can be right.
3) Type In — users enter the answer manually.
2. Next, add the question text and format it if you wish. You can make the text bold or italic. Also, you can insert a hyperlink.
3. There are two ways to add a picture into the question.
1) Upload an image from the computer
2) Add a picture URL
If you upload an image from the computer, click Load Image, select an image on your local disc, and hit the Open button.
In case the picture you want to add to the question is posted on the Internet, copy its URL, click Insert from URL, put the link into the field, and hit the Enter key.
To remove an image from the question or replace it by a new one, click the Edit link next to the pictire and choose the needed option.
Now that the question is added, start adding answers to it. Enter the answer options and establish the correct ones.
If the question formate is Type In, add all possible answer options that may be considered correct. If you check Case sensitive, iSpring Learn will consider the letter case when verifying the answer. Let's say, the 'red Sea' answer will be wrong, and the 'Red Sea' option will be correct.
You can set up feedback for every question. Choose one of two feedback messages types.
1) Any answer — the message will appear whether the response is correct or not.
For instance, for the 'Which sea is the saltiest?' question, you can add the following feedback message: 'The saltiest sea on the Earth is the Red Sea. Its water holds 41 grams of salt in every liter'.
2) Correct/Incorrect — create two messages that will be shown respectively for correct and incorrect answers.
Let's say, if students give a correct question to the 'Which sea is the saltiest?' question, add the following text: 'Correct! Its water holds 41 grams of salt in every liter'. For an erroneous answer, you can set up such message: 'The answer is incorrect. Have another read of the chapter and try again'.
After you added questions and answers of the exercise, go to editing its settings.
1. Click the Settings button at the bottom left corner.
2. There are two exercise parameters which could be changed:
1) Shuffle answers — answers to the question will be shown randomly.
2) Show correct answers — after the question is answered, correct answers will be shown.
3. Adjust settings as you wish and click Done.
Congratulations! You added an exrcise to your longread!
