Interaction Authoring Tools

A Text Editing Toolbar is available to the Item Author, containing various tools for creating new Interactions and only appears when authoring a new Item.

The toolbar will appear below the Action Bar once you have created a blank item, clicked on Authoring, and then dragged and dropped the interaction template of your choice from the Interactions Library on the left onto the Canvas in the middle. Note: See the section Creating a new Item for details on how to create an item.

The toolbar contains two types of aids:

Style Features:

The icons towards the left of the bar can be used to make the text of the item bold, italics, or underline it. You can also include the text as a subscript or a superscript here.

Feature Insertion:

Using the icons towards the right, you can insert a special character, a shared stimulus, a math expression or formula (using the formula editor), an image or other type of media, a table, a tooltip, or a link into your question.

Most of these functions work in the same way as in a typical text editor. The tooltip can be used to add explanations for the Test-taker to specific text fragments of the Test.
