How do a I create a multiple dropdown quiz question in the new quiz format ?

Jump to solution

Hi All

I am having trouble finding the multiple dropdown quiz question in the new quiz settings, I had no problems finding it in the old quiz settings.

I have attached the questions types available in the new quiz format but no idea which one is the multiple dropdown quiz question.

Any help will be appreciated

Regards

Mandeep

Hi  @Mandeep_Dhesi .  I checked the comparison chart here, New Quizzes Feature Comparison, which indicates that the dropdown question type in classic quizzes is now done through the fill-in-the-blank question type in New Quizzes.  This guide has information on how to use the FITB question options in New Quizzes, https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-15069-4152780601 

I hope this helps and best wishes!

Hi Eric

Thank you for your reply it was a great help and it seems a strange place to put the dropdown question type.because it is not obvious.

Whilst the multiple dropdown quiz in New Quizzes servers the same purpose as the one in Old/Former/Classic Quizzes they most certainly lack the functionality.

For example there is no RCE to be able to manipulate where you put the dropdowns. In the Old/Former/Classic quiz you could create table entries and have the dropdowns in different cells. With the new tool you are limited to having the quizzes appear in text.

Perhaps you may wish to vote for RCE in this ideas - https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/3791-new-quizzes-allow-rich-content-editing-for-fill-in-the-bl...  and also https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/2231-new-quizzes-rich-content-editor-rce-for-matching-question...  and https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/14647-quizzesnext-rich-content-editor-for-categorisation-quest...
