New Quizzes: Rich Content Editor (RCE) for Matching Question Types

(24)
The Rich Content Editor (RCE) is available to use in *most* quiz question types, but not Matching questions. A lot of our instructors would like to use images, or bold/italicize text, or use other options in quiz answers, and without the RCE they are not able to do that. It needs to be available to use in ALL quiz questions types.

 

As an example, some of our IT instructors would like to be able to use Matching questions, and have students match an icon with a term/definition. Without being able to use the RCE for the answer spaces, this is not possible.

 

Please consider making the RCE available for ALL quiz question types.

There really needs to be an ability to match pictures with words.  It is extremely frustrating trying to find work arounds for something that can be so easily done in Schoology.

What is it that you are trying to accomplish?  Not sure what you mean by "match pictures with words".

Where did the upvote option go?  I want to add my voice to this five year old suggestion. Why are so many of the suggestions on "New" Quizzes so old? Has there been any development on "new" quizzes since it was initially released?

Having more dynamic options like drag and drop would be very useful. It could be used either with words and pictures or dropping words into sentence blanks, etc.

we'd love to further the conversation here.  Can you provide more context?

I should be able to insert/past a picture in the matching areas, rather than fiddle with a strategy in the question prompt area.  Here is a shot of where I feel you should be able to add content such as pictures to match to.  I want students to be able to match a name to a symbol.  I know this can be accomplished in another way, but it should be as easy as pasting into the areas illustrated below (matching right or left side).  In other words, images should work as a response just as text would.

MathQuill is a great tool in New Quizzes, however, can this option please be added to the matching questions? Thank you.

It would be helpful if matching questions would allow for inserting images and math equations into the questions and answers.  It would also be helpful if there was a drag and drop feature for test questions that would also allow for inserting images and math questions.  

This feature is available in mastery connect; however, we are primarily using canvas and the students are familiar with canvas.

Yes, this needs to be implemented for STEM fields.  I can't really use matching if I can't use LaTeX math editor in the text box to write equations and math formatting...  I would love to be able to use these alternative quiz question types, but right now all I can do is look at them and hope someday this will be implemented.

We would like to see the RCE in all question types.  We are trying to add a audio recording to either the matching or the multiple drop down quiz types.  We are able to currently do this in the classic Quiz but no longer able to do this in the New Quizzes.

Please please add the Math Quill option to the matching type of question in the pairs and distractors.  Math teachers cannot use the current NEW Quizzes matching option without some type of math type ability.

Matching questions in Canvas new quizzes should have MathQuill as an option. It's hard to use for math without this tool for this type of question.

For our language courses, it would also really be helpful if there were an option to add pictures to the matching exercise. Right now, or workaround is to put the pictures in the question (with classic quizzes) or in the stimulus (with new quizzes), label each picture with a letter and then ask students to match the letters to the correct words/phrases.

A lot of our teachers have asked about the possibility to include pictures and RCE in the matching exercise, so we hope it is still being considered.

Looking at this thread of needs in the New Quiz tool how Instructure does not leave our faculty without features like the images and links to audio and video in matching questions types!

It is difficult to promote moving to a new tool when it lacks functionality already present in existing tools.

Can you add the rich editor to the matching quiz? This will enable us to add pictures to the quiz.
