Creating the connect with lines exercise
To create connect with lines excercise:
1 In the Objects Panel select Exercises tab.
2 This will expand the panel. Choose the Connect with lines to make one test question.
3 It will create one Submit button.
4 ATTENTION! This button is only used to define answers. To create question you must use the text field (from Insert text field option).
5 Let’s start with defining conditions of connecting objects with lines. Go to the Properties tab located on the Bottom panel. In the Exercise objects field click on gray viewfinder and select objects you want to include to the exercise area. You can select multiple objects at once by holding left SHIFT key.
6 Now, when you have defined Exercise objects, you can choose which object is the source (which object you need to connect) and which one is the mark (to which object you need to connect other object/objects). Both, source and mark, you will choose by clicking on the corresponding gray viewfinder.
ATTENTION! Remember that you can delete created dependency between objects at any time by choosing Trashcan icon.
7 When you defined conditions and objects of the exercise you can select Exercise settings. By choosing that option you can define important conditions. Let’s learn something about them.
If you will check Turn on feedbacks, after connecting objects with line and clicking on Submit button there will be displayed basic feedback for correct and bad answer.
If you will check Only target-mark option, the user won’t be able to connect other objects that those defined in created dependency,
By checking Allow to connect bad answers you will allow users to connect any objects from the Exercise objects regardless of created dependencies. Attention! If you will not check that option, there will be no possibility to end exercise with bad answers, because they will be cancelled on the spot.
You can also define what will happen after submitting bad connection. If you will select Do nothing option wrong connection will be saved. If you will select Remove wrong answers or Remove all answers program will cancel all wrong answers or all answers if even one will be wrong.
8 You can also choose All objects settings. Thanks to that you will define width of the connection lines, join size, maximum number of connections, joint position and color of the connecting lines.
9 Let’s look at the Scores tab right now. Remember to change the Number of attempts to at least one, because if you don’t user will be able to perform exercise any number of times.
10 You can also define feedbacks. That option is in the Properties tab. You can enter the message that will be displayed after giving correct or invalid answer. You can check the effect of this action in the Preview mode.
11 You can also use premade styles to modify Submit button. They are located in Premade styles tab located on the Bottom panel.
12 The next functionality is configuration of the test scores. To do that, go to the Scores tab.When determining the test scores, you can decide the number of points that are required to pass. You can also determine if your test requires passing and how many points you can gain or loose by taking it. The Attempts field detemines, how many times you can try to pass the test - zero value means that there is no limit on the number of approaches.
13 And that’s all! Congratulations! You have mastered creating the connect with lines excercises!
