Fill in the Blank Questions

About Fill in the Blank Questions

Fill in the Blank answers are evaluated based on an exact text match. Accordingly, it is important to keep the answers simple and limited to as few words as possible. Answers are not case sensitive, but are evaluated based on spelling. Consider the following tips when creating Fill in the Blank questions and answers:

Try to keep answers limited to one word to avoid mismatched answers due to extra spaces or order of answer terms.  If the answer may be more then one word, list all possibilities as answers. For example, if Benjamin Franklin is the answer, include Benjamin Franklin, Franklin, and Ben Franklin as correct answers.

Note: Use the Fill in Multiple Blanks question type to create a question with multiple answers.
