Instructors now have the ability to add a “Title” when authoring objective questions or essays (assignments) in the assessment engine of Etudes. This optional field provides a way to categorize questions by keywords or phrases. For example, the title may be the chapter or unit that the question’s content is derived from, or it could be used to identify questions in summative assessments to collect Student Learning Outcomes (SLO) data (see Using the Question Title Field for SLO Data Collection).
Adding Titles to Questions
When adding a question, you may also provide a title. Use one word or very short phrase for this field.
If titles are included in questions during authoring, they will be listed in a separate column in the question list of your pools. The Title column is sortable.
If you like to author your questions offline in a text file and bulk upload / paste them into Etudes via the offline authoring functionality, you can include titles to your questions by adding “QuestionTitle:” (case insensitive) after the question, as in the following:
Where would a “troglodyte” live?
*1. In a cave
2. Up a tree
questiontitle: Prehistoric Races
Upon pasting them via the Paste and Import feature, the title field will be populated, too.
