Within an Echo assessment there is a Passage question type.
This question type allows you to add a Passage and associate several questions to it without having to add the passage to each question.
Create a Passage question type
To add a Passage question, first enter an Assessment through the Editor tool.
1. Navigate to the Questions tab.
2. Click the + create new question.
From the drop down menu, select Passage .
Type or paste in the Passage students will be answering questions about.
Decide how would like the Passage to display in relation to the question(s) it is associated with.
- Display passage to the right
- Display one passage question at a time
Add the question to an existing Group with the associated ID, or create a new one. Groups allow you to vary settings for different questions.
Click Choose objective in theObjective mastery panel to review and align the question with objective(s). Once you've clicked it, you can:
Use the score panel to indicate if you want to allow for partial credit. You can also indicate If you want the question to count as extra credit.
With the Variables section you can create a range or list of variables for use in the question.
Check the appropriate box(es) to provide students with one or more of the following calculators to use with this question (Basic, Standard, and/or Scientific).
Click Add material in Companion Material to attach any supplemental documents students need to complete this question. You can do this by pointing to existing resources in the course or uploading new files (PDF's only).
Associate the Passage with a question.
The next step will be adding questions and associating them with this Passage.
- Click the + create new question.
- Select the type of question.
- Set up your question.
- Select to associate this question with question 1 (which is the passage in this case).
Repeat this process for all questions that need to be associated with the Passage.
