The multiple choice question is a staple of academic assessments and corporate training. But sometimes you need, or want, to mix it up a little. Maybe you want to challenge your learners beyond a simple recall question type. Well, we have good news: with the new free-form question types in Quizmaker ’13, you can get really imaginative with your quizzes.

So, what is a free-form question? Unlike many form-based question types, where you fill in your question and answer choices as text, a free-form question is one you create without a form, beginning with a blank slide and then designing your question visually.

Let’s say you want to create a drag-and-drop question with your own images. Start with a blank slide and then:

Add the images you’d like to use in your drag-and-drop

Click the “Convert to Freeform” button on the right-hand side of the slide

Switch to Form View

Once you’ve converted your slide into a free-form question, click “Form View” and match the drag items with the correct drop target(s).

Congrats! You’ve just created a custom drag-and-drop question. It’s just as easy to create the other free-form questions, such as a pick-one, a pick-many, or a hotspot. Simply start with your own content, and then let Quizmaker ’13 work its magic.
