How do I use the assessment text editor?

With the assessment text editor you can use a simple, text-based format to create questions. You can assign properties, like question type, by entering them above the question number. You can also use optional special codes that indicate question structures and advanced formatting.

In the following example type question type, "MC" (multiple-choice), is assigned as a property and the correct answer, 'c', is indicated with a code:

Type: MC
Label: A
1) What is the capital of Sweden?
a. Oslo
b. Helsinki
*c. Stockholm

You can preview your questions by switching to the visual editor for individual questions or the preview for the entire assessment.

To use the text editor, click the switch next to "text editor" to toggle it on or off (by default it is off).
