This tutorial will show you the correct format for importing matching questions into Respondus. Build your quiz as a .txt, .rtf, or .doc file.

First, you need to designate the question as a matching question in a way that Respondus can recognize. Type Type: MT as your first line.

Hit enter to start a new line. To specify a point value, type Points: followed by the points that the question is worth. If you don't specify the point value, the question will automatically be worth 1 point.

Hit enter to start a new line. To include a title for your question, type Title: followed by the title for the question. Specifying a title is optional, and so Respondus will automatically use the first 20 characters of the question wording for the title if you want to skip this step.

Hit enter to start a new line. Type the question number followed by either a period . or a parenthesis ). Next, type the question instructions. Be sure to put a space between the . or ) and the first word.

To include general feedback, which is optional, hit enter to start a new line. Next, type a ~ followed by the text that you want your students to see if they choose the correct answer, or if you want to give feedback to students who chose the wrong answer, replace the ~ with a @. To include both, type the ~ followed by the positive feedback, hit enter to start a new line, and then type the @ followed by the negative feedback.

Hit enter to start a new line. Type a. or a) followed by the first criterion that will appear in the column on the left, an equal sign, and then the criterion that will appear on the right. Do not put spaces on either side of the equal sign or use an equal sign anywhere else in the question. Hit enter to start a new line and repeat with the second criterion but starting with b. or b). Repeat for the remaining criteria.
