Respondus Quiz Question Formatting

Quiz questions can be automatically imported to an Elearning Quiz from a Microsoft Word document. In order to do this, specific formats for questions are required and outlined below.

Use the following question formats when setting up your questions in a Microsoft Word document. If you have question types that are not listed here, we will format those manually when importing.

Additional formatting considerations are to ensure the question and answer alignment is to the left, no extra spaces or formatting is needed.

Important: DO NOT use automatic numbering - this can be disabled from the Paragraph Format section on the Home ribbon in Microsoft Word.

Any images associated with questions will import automatically as long as they are embedded in the Word file.
