How does the "Matching" question work?

The "Matching" question tests your students' understanding of a concept by asking them to link items together.

How does it work for the teacher?

Step 1: Select the type of question "Matching"

Step 2: Fill in a question and the elements to be linked

To create a match, you need to ask a question (e.g. "Relate the simplified structure of the following compounds to their semi-developed formulae.") and the elements that the students will have to relate (e.g. the names of the molecules associated with the correct formulae)

In each row, fill in one element in one column and the corresponding element in the other column. The pairs you fill in correspond to the correct answers.

You can also add pictures to the first column as you can see in the example below.

Step 3: Add feedback if necessary and save

How does it work for students?

When you launch the question, students will see the items in the first column displayed one below the other. For each item they will have to select the corresponding item in the other column from a drop-down list.

How to combine several topics into one theme?

If you wish to associate several city names with the same country for example, or more generally to associate several topics with a single theme, this is possible!
You just have to replace the word you want to write twice with "==" followed by the number of the line you want to double the word.

In the example below, you want to associate several cities with the country France. As you have written "France" in the first line, you only need to write "==1" in the other lines where you want to put the country France.

If France had been in the second line, you could have written ==2 etc.
