good life “: john calvin H u m a n i t i e s
create at least 15 multiple choice, multiple answer (check all that apply) or matching questions from the course material. You must create questions from at least 10 of our modules. You are encouraged to use material from more than one module in a single question (for example, as distractors/wrong answers in a multiple-choice question, or as items in a matching question).
Here is some guidance on creating questions:
- Tips for Educators: How to Write Multiple-Choice Questions (Links to an external site.)
- 14 Rules for Writing Multiple-Choice Questions (Links to an external site.)
- 10 Rules for Multiple Choice Questions (Links to an external site.) (this one is the best, I think)
- Writing Matching Text Items (Links to an external site.)
To earn full credit on this assignment, your questions must be good ones (see the guidance on writing questions), and they must come from at least 10 different modules. Put an asterisk/star next to the correct answer. For matching questions, just put the items next to each other that match up. At the end, write a little about what it was like for you to write these questions!
Here is a template for you to use, with examples. Just copy and paste this into the text box of the assignment; or if you wish, you can copy and paste into a separate document and upload it:
