The Match interaction provides Test-takers with a matrix upon which they can demonstrate their knowledge by accurately matching, or associating, selections from two different sets of elements. Matching is carried out by placing check marks in squares where matching rows and columns intersect.
This creates a new Match Interaction window. There is a question field at the top, and a default 2-row-by-2-column matrix beneath this.
2. Fill in the question field, where it says 'define prompt'.
This should describe the match task expected of the test-taker.
Note: The A icon on the right allows you to bold or italize text, and to insert a picture, shared stimulus, math expression or link into your question. These options are available whenever you see this icon.
3. Insert in the rows the first set of elements, and in the columns the second set of elements that are to be matched with the first.
Using the Add new row and Add new column buttons, add as many rows and columns as will be needed to cover all the matches. If desired, add some unmatched elements in either the rows or the columns to provide an additional challenge for the Test-taker.
4. Click Response on the right of blue interaction header to define the correct answer(s).
6. Click the blue Done button. Your Match Interaction is now complete.
After this step, you can preview your Interaction using the steps given in the Preview instructions.
