Getting started: adding questions

Types of Questions: Drag and Drop Text

Drag and Drop question allows you to add interactivity to objects on the screen by designating drag text items and drop targets.

Drag and Drop Text Question Example: What countries do these notes belong to?

  • Bermuda
  • Cook Islands
  • Hong Kong
  • Antarctica

Types of Questions: Statement

Statement question allows you to check a number of facts in one question on a single page. A learner has to indicate whether they are true or false. A very interesting question type if you want to assess knowledge. 

Statement Question Example: Which of these statements about the space are correct?

  • The sun makes up 99.8% of the mass of the solar system.
  • Comets have only one tail made of dust.
  • All of the other planets in the solar system could fit between Earth and the moon.
  • Only 18 missions to Mars have been successful.
  • The Moon is moving approximately 3.8 cm away from our planet every year.

Types of Questions: Hotspot

Hotspot question allows you to present learners with an image and let them identify one or more spots on that image. It is a very graphical way to assess your learners.

Hotspot Question Example: Can you find humerus?

There are two bones in human skeleton  called 'humerus'. Click on two spots.

Types of Questions: Open Question

Open question is a question that cannot be answered with "yes" or "no" but requires an exhaustive answer. Learners are given the opportunity to type an answer into a text field. This question type must be graded manually.

Open Question Example: Can you tell us something about yourself?

Types of Questions: Scenario

This question type allows you to create branched scenarios and simulations that challenge the learner to make swift and accurate decisions. To make it even more interactive and engaging, you can also choose a character and background that fits your subject.


Scenario Question Example: How to make your customer happy?

Types of question: Ranking text

Ranking text question asks respondents to rank items in regard to preference or significance.

This is a short tutorial on how to create a ranking text in Easygenerator.


Ranking Text Example: Can you rank Harry Potter books?

  • Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
