How Do I Create a Matching Quiz Question?

You can create a matching question for your students.

Note: Matching questions only support text at this time.


Add Question


With the Questions tab [1] selected inside a new quiz, click the New Question button [2].


Set Name, Type, and Points


Quiz questions are not automatically numbered for instructors. To add a custom name to your quiz question, enter the name in the question text field [1]. Custom names can help you identify quiz questions more easily. Regardless of the question name, students always see quiz questions in numerical order (i.e. Question 1, Question 2).

Click the drop-down menu and select the Matching question type [2].

Enter number of points the question is worth (quiz totals are calculated based on combined total of questions) [3].


Enter Matching Question Details


To build a Matching question, you will need to enter the following details:

  1. The question text (use the Rich Content Editorto include video, images, math equations, or flash activities)
  2. The first word of the matching pair
  3. The second word of the matching pair


Repeat steps 2 and 3 until all matches are paired.
