Attach multiple quiz questions to one "formula" like stimulus

Attach multiple quiz questions to one "formula" like stimulus

0 Kudos

I teach science, and there are times when in a quiz, I want the students to have a Lab prompt with a data table, and answer a series of questions about this. 

In the formula style question, you are allowed to give a parameters for randomly generated numbers in questions so that every kid gets a different number.

The feature I am suggesting is the ability to have a formula like prompt in a question stimulus that I can then attach questions to. 

It might look something like the screenshot below, where in the table, the numbers in the table of the stimulus are the `x` and `y` of the attached formula questions. 

This would also allow me to make questions much closer to NGSS and the Next Generation Science Assessment.

I also teach, and there are times I would like to have data randomly generated so students get slightly different data on the questions, but then be able to ask a series of questions related to that original data set.  In real life there are often problems that require a series of steps, calculations, or decision making, and it would be great if our quizzes could reflect that.

@sjensen4  this is a great idea and I would like it too.  If wildcard/variables could be defined in a stimulus then you could have scaffolded questions linked to it.  Perfect for science.

Love the idea.
Of course it would then be great, if you could save the stimulus with the questions in the question banks also.

I teach electricity, and would be great if we could place the electrical circuit and variables in the stimulus question. Then construct a series of questions linked to the same variables asking different values like voltages, current, power, etc, all based on the same circuit.
