What is Multiple Choice?
The most classic of all education tests, this is a new spin on an old favourite. This is a great way to test out your users' knowledge with a basic question and 4 answers, only 1 of which is correct.
How does Multiple Choice work?
This simple game starts with a question at the top of the screen and multiple answers below. The user must select the correct answer to earn points. This game can be altered to make things a little easier or harder for your users with additional features. Such as incorrect answers slowly "falling off" as the timer ticks away, slower or faster timers, or hints added in.
How do I write Multiple Choice content?
Multiple Choice is the most versatile of all the game types and the most commonly used. It is a basic staple of testing in all forms of education. Because of this, it is also one of the easier game types to adapt content to.
To add content simply type out the question in the "Question" text field in Gather Content. Then, add in the correct answer to the question in the top text field marked as the "Correct Answer". After this, fill in three incorrect answers in the last three text boxes.
Always remember to keep track of your character count. As you add more content, you will see a small window on the bottom right of the text box keeping track of how many characters you have used. Once you go over your allowed characters, the number will turn red. It is important to keep your text within the character count limit as it will affect how the text is displayed in the game object. Too much text, and it will get cut off.
What content works best?
While any content can be used in this game type, the easiest content to adapt for Multiple Choice is anything that is number based. For example, questions that must ask a user "How many...", "What percentage...", or "What amount..." are ideal candidates to be used in a Multiple Choice game.
Similarly, questions that can have listed items as potential answers also make excellent content in the Multiple Choice game.
An example of a question and answers like this would be;
"What is the best method of travel?"
