Advice and answers from the eCoach Team

The Drop Down Template requires your Participants to answer questions by selecting the answer from a drop down menu. This makes it a good template for adding a new element to your quizzes or testing category knowledge.

Here’s how you can make your own Drop Down Template in eCoach:

Step 1: Select the Drop Down Template from the ‘Checkpoint Questions’ panel.

Step 2: Drag your Drop Down Template into the Lesson Pathway.

Step 3: Give your new Tile a title.

Step 4: Click the ‘Edit Tile’ button.

Note: From the edit screen, you can choose to change your title.

Step 5: There will be a Drop Down question preloaded in the ‘Checkpoint Question Editor’ box. Click the edit button to start creating it.

Step 6: Enter some instructive text that explains your new question – your actually question text will come later.

Step 7: Click the ‘Add Question Text’ option and add your question text.

Step 8: Click the ‘Add Dropdown Options’ text (see the image above), and then click the green ‘Add Dropdown Option’ button that appears.

Step 9: Enter the text for your new dropdown option and select whether it’s the correct answer.

Step 10: Continue adding dropdown options by repeating steps 8 and 9.

Note: You can add more dropdown questions by repeating Step 7.

Note: The Match Corresponding Template offers three additional options. Firstly, you can provide custom feedback, which lets you add custom feedback text for both correct and incorrect answers. Secondly, you can choose to randomise the answers to your question each time the template loads, making it harder for students to remember which answers were correct if they are completing the template a second time. You can also map your learning outcomes to each dropdown question.

To continue adding questions, simply go back to the ‘Checkpoint Question Editor’ box and click on the green ‘Add New Question’ button.

Step 10: To preview your template, click on the ‘preview’ icon.
