Classtime currently offers 10 types of Questions to create and share with your students:

Fill-in-the-gap

Fill-in-the-gap questions can be used to assess reading comprehension, check grammar, name an object in a picture, and provide an effective way for teachers to measure students’ depth of knowledge. With Classtime, you have two fill-in-the-gap options: free-text and multiple-choice dropdowns.

First, prepare your fill-in-the-gap question by entering text, highlighting the text that you would like to convert into a gap, and deciding between a free-text, choice dropdown, or both:

Answer Input

Free-Text:

Students will see a gap and need to fill in the correct phrase or word that completes the sentence.

Choices:

Students will click on the gap and select the correct answer from a list of options.

Validation

Provide the correct answer in the solution explanation, and your students’ answers will automatically be validated:

Example

Multiple Choice

Answer Input

Students will see all answer options and need to select ONE correct answer from multiple choices.

Validation

The student answer is automatically validated. You need to provide the correct solution when creating the Question. You can add as many answer options as you want.

Validation

Example

Free Text Answer

Answer Input

Students can enter a text in free form and unlimited length.

Validation

The student answer is manually validated by you in the Session dashboard. You can select a yellow answer cell (with a 'View-Eye') and validate the answer as correct or incorrect.
Important: Classtime will bundle all identical student answers, allowing you to immediately validate multiple answers of your students. This saves you a lot of time. Also, once you've validated an answer, Classtime will remember and automatically validate any newly incoming answers in the future - even if you're reusing the Question in new Session!

Example

Students will see a categorization table and need to select the corresponding correct item (row) per category (column). Every item corresponds to exactly one category.
