5 LESSON 1 LEARN ABOUT THE CUSTOM QUESTION BUILDER There are four ways you can choose to create a custom question. Refer to the lessons listed in the table below for detailed directions on each method. Custom Question Creation Method Lessons Copy a publisher question. 3 and 5 Copy a sample question. 3 and 5 Copy another instructor's question. 3 and 5 Start with a new question. 7, 8, 9, 10 Regardless of which method you choose to begin with, you can edit the question as needed. The diagram below illustrates the interrelationships among the four methods. Your custom question can be written as a static or algorithmic question. Static questions do not change when the question is displayed in an assignment, and all students will see the same values in the question. Algorithmic questions, on the other hand, are designed to randomly generate values each time the question is displayed in an assignment. Each student should see a different version of the question. The algorithms are defined by the question writer, and follow the constraints set for each algorithmic value. In addition, each custom question can have one or more types of student answer input. The available answer input types are listed in the following table, along with an example illustrating the answer input. The screenshots show the custom question in the Custom Question Builder editor window. Pearson Education, 2011 (1/21/2011) Page 5

6 Student Answer Input Description Lessons Short answer Students enter the exact answer in text, numerical, or symbolic format. 7, 8 Multiplechoice Students choose their answer from a list of 3 or more choices. 10 Pearson Education, 2011 (1/21/2011) Page 6

7 Student Answer Input Description Lessons True-False Students choose their answer from a list of 2 choices. 10 Essay Students type their answers using text or mathematical expressions in a free-format answer box. Instructors review the students' answers and manually assign a grade. Essay questions can only be included in quizzes and tests and cannot be mixed with other types of answer input. 9 Pearson Education, 2011 (1/21/2011) Page 7

8 Now that you know what options are available for designing a custom question, let's look at some reasons why you might want to write your own questions. Remember that any of these types of questions can be static or algorithmic and you can use a variety of answer inputs (short answer, multiple-choice, true/false, essay). Type of question Syllabus questions Vocabulary or conceptual questions Show your work questions Skill and application questions Description These questions would assess students' knowledge of your course syllabus and policies, including such items as the grading scale, author/title of the textbook, homework policy, or instructor office hours. Since these questions would be unique to your course, you would need to create the questions from scratch. These questions would assess students' knowledge of the relevant terms/definitions and concepts in your course curriculum. Vocabulary and conceptual questions are usually not included in the online question database, and so you would probably need to create these types of questions from scratch. Many textbooks include vocabulary and conceptual questions in the end-of-section question sets and you might be able to model your custom questions from these questions. You can design questions that require students to enter the steps for working out the solution to the question. You can either use the essay answer input to allow students to freely format their work, or create a multi-part question that walks students through the solution steps. These questions would supplement the questions that are included in the online question bank for your textbook. You can either create these from scratch or you could copy a question from another textbook. Lessons 7, 10 9, 10 7, 9 8 Follow the rest of the lessons in this tutorial to learn how to write your custom questions. Pearson Education, 2011 (1/21/2011) Page 8

9 LESSON 2 GET STARTED WITH THE CUSTOM QUESTION BUILDER In this lesson, you will learn how to open the Custom Question Builder and navigate in the program. Note that only instructors can access the Custom Question Builder. Section instructors cannot create custom questions unless they are given full access as an instructor for a course. 1. Log in to MyMathLab, MyStatLab, MathXL, or MyMathTest. Open your browser and log in as an instructor to MyMathLab, MyStatLab, MathXL, or MyMathTest. 2. Open the Homework/Test Manager or Test Manager. Enter any course in MyMathLab, MyStatLab, or MathXL, and navigate to the Homework/Test Manager. In MyMathTest, enter any program and navigate to the Test Manager. 3. Open the Custom Question Builder. In the Homework/Test Manager, click the Create Assignment button and select Create Custom Question. If you are in the MyMathTest Test Manager, click the Create Test button and select Create Custom Question. Alternatively, select Manage Custom Questions from the More Assignment Tools dropdown list. Note: If the Create Custom Question option is not available, this means that you are not an instructor for the course. Select another course to access the Create Custom Question option. If you do not have any other courses, consult with your math coordinator to see if you can obtain an instructor account. 4. View the Custom Question Manager. The Custom Question Manager lists all of the custom questions that are in your database. Questions are initially ordered alphabetically by question title but you can change the sort order by clicking on the column name. 5. Filter the list of questions. Note: If there are no questions listed in your Custom Question Manager, you can return to this lesson to practice the filtering later when you do have questions in your list. In the Custom Question Manager, you can filter your question by book or keyword. When you save a question (see Lesson 5) you have the option of associating the question with the content in a textbook. This allows you to organize your questions by textbook. In addition, if you associate the custom question to an objective in the textbook, your students' performance on the question in a homework assignment, quiz or test can be used to update their Study Pearson Education, 2011 (1/21/2011) Page 9

11 LESSON 3 COPY A CUSTOM QUESTION There are four sources of questions you can copy from: Publisher question bank Custom Question Builder sample question bank Another instructor's question bank Your custom question bank Regardless of the source, when you copy a question, the original question is unchanged; instead, a copy of the question is saved in your instructor account and you can edit the copy as desired. Copy from the publisher question bank You can select a question from the question bank associated with any online course you have created. Note: If you choose to copy and edit a question from the publisher question bank, the learning aids usually associated with that question (such as Help Me Solve This, View an Example, videos, or animations) will not be available. In addition, any multi-step questions will be unrolled and presented in one screen. 1. Navigate to the Custom Question Manager. Follow the steps in Lesson 2 to navigate to the Custom Question Manager. 2. Create a new question. In the Custom Question Manager window, click the Create New Question button. 3. Select a copy option. In Step 1 of the Create Custom Question wizard, select the first option to Copy and edit a question from your online course. Click Next to continue. 4. Filter the list of available questions. The Choose Question step contains dropdown lists which you use to filter the question database. The questions available for your selection are displayed in the Available Questions box. Note that the Book dropdown list includes all textbooks or testbanks that you have used to create a course or program. Tip: To copy and edit a question from a textbook that you are not teaching from, first create a course using that textbook. Use the dropdown lists to select a book, chapter, section, and objective. The list of Available Questions shows you the question ID for each question. The question ID identifies the chapter, section, and objective from the corresponding question in the textbook. In the example shown in the Pearson Education, 2011 (1/21/2011) Page 11

12 screenshot, question corresponds to question 35 in section 2.1 of your textbook. The online question will be an algorithmic version of the textbook question. Note: In MyMathTest, there are only three dropdown lists (Book, Chapter, Section), and the question IDs are given for your convenience only and do not correspond to questions in any textbook. 5. Preview a question. Select a question in the Available Questions list, and click the Preview button. In the Preview Question window, you can practice entering an answer and generating a similar question.

20 LESSON 5 EDIT AND SAVE A CUSTOM QUESTION In Lesson 3, you learned how to copy a custom question from the online database. In this lesson, you will learn how to edit the question and save it to your custom question database. The example used for this lesson is taken from the Sullivan, College Algebra, 8e textbook and is question The original question has 3 parts and you will learn how to edit the question text, remove an answer part, edit an answer part, and edit some of the algorithms. 1. Copy the custom question. Follow the steps in Lesson 3 to copy the question from the publisher question bank. You can either copy the question used in this lesson (Sullivan, College Algebra, 8e, question ) or copy another question with similar characteristics. If you choose to copy the question used in this lesson, you may need to first create a course from the Sullivan, College Algebra, 8e textbook. Note: If you are in MyMathTest, you will need to copy a question from one of the MyMathTest testbanks since you will not be able to create a course from the Sullivan, College Algebra, 8e textbook. 2. Remove an answer part. For this lesson, you will remove the last answer part of this question and not ask students to determine the symmetry of the function. In the question area, delete the text for part c. In the answer area, scroll down till you see the text related to part c and delete all of this text. Note: When you remove answer parts from a custom question, be sure to review and edit the entire question for consistency. Pearson Education, 2011 (1/21/2011) Page 20
