Max: So let's say of these short part of theory explains how to upload videos and now I want my students to prove that they know it by going through the tests and we'll now look at several questions to this test. Okay, so in order to make a test, you just need to drag and drop question types onto the test layout page on the right side of your screen. So, you've got six types of questions and you can use any of those in any combination in the test. Let me just add a multiple choice question to my test and, by the way, this is, by far, the most used, the most frequent question which is used in all kind of tests everywhere so probably you would also be using this type of questions quite frequently.

So, in every question, you're able to configure multiple parameters which are the question itself that could be some extended ... and you can illustrate your question test with images or videos if you want, and also you can specify tags for every question, but let me go just through, every, through all of the items one-by-one. All right, so, let me just type in the question here. Which screen should you go to in order to upload a video to YouTube? And also let me add some variants to this question. Let's say, Home Screen then My Channel, and finally Upload Screen. Yes, of course, you can upload video from any of those, but let's pretend it is just Upload Screen, and what you're going to do is just select Upload answer as the correct answer and this is basically it. If you want later to allow your students to choose from multiple answers, you can easily switch it on the go and choose multiple correct variants here too. This is how you would create a question in your test.

And there are also other types of questions available. I'll just show them one-by-one really quickly without stressing much attention on those. Simple yes and no question where a student can choose between two variants, yes and no. There is a certain question where a student needs to put some items in other, let's say put the regulation rules in order of their precedence, put the numbers in a certain order and so on and so forth. So, any kind of sorting operations can be checked via this simple question.

Next there is a nice and pretty sophisticated question type, mix and match question, which allows to evaluate multiple areas within the single question. Now, let me show the example of how we can do that. Let's say ... the country ... and the spoken language. Okay, and let me add some countries so it'll be Italy, France, and Germany. So, obviously, I need to add variants to match against the locks. First, let me put in capitals and that will be Rome, Paris, then Berlin. Then languages; Italian, then French, and finally German, and then we'll match it to represent the right answer so that the wrong and the item that will be Paris and French and finally Berlin and German. So, as you see, all of these students would need to know at least two things about every country, and you can add more than that so you can add multiple aspects. You can put answers in equally. So, let's say this one would be right answer and so on and so forth. So, your ... is the only lenience for using this question actually.

Okay, there is also text reply question which requires some sort of word or certain combination of words to be typed in, and also there is a text gap question which looks similar to the previous one but this is different because it allows the student to choose the right variant. So, let me show by example. The capital of Italy is Rome. So I just select Rome as the text gap and I provide several variants for my students to choose from so Rome is the right one and then Paris, and then Berlin. Okay, and this is basically it. You can then modify your task sidings which could be modifying the maximum number of attempts allowed for. You can set time limits for every attempt. You can choose whether to shuffle questions or not, whether to skip questions or not, and set the person threshold which is the percent, the amount of questions of answered correctly in percent. So let me put it, 50, so my students need to answer at least half of questions correctly to pass this test. I can, further, use this task to change the course experience for my students. So let's say, for those who successfully passes this test, I will show the congratulations page here and that would be the end for that. And for those who weren't able to successfully complete this test, I want to add some additional learning materials. Let's say that would be a video tutorial. So I will just go ahead and click video, extend it to the complete scene, and then I will search on YouTube on how to upload a video and here I go. So I just added a video tutorial to my students and this will be displayed to my students after unsuccessful attempt of passing this test.

So basically, in a nutshell, this is the main process of making the learning context.
