What kinds of questions can I create on Gooru?
Gooru allows you to use one of eight different question types:
- Fill in the Blank
- Multiple Choice
- Multiple Answer
- Drag and Drop Reorder *
- Highlight Text *
- Multi-Select Image *
- Multi-Select Text *
* These specific question types mirror those found in SBAC and PARCC testing.
In addition, Free Response questions are available as well but only for collections, not assessments.
Consider alternating the kinds of questions you use to offer students exposure to these question types and to provide multiple formats for demonstrating knowledge.
Tag your questions to standards, choose a subject and framework for your question. For questions in assessments, you can see how your students are interacting with questions through the teacher data dashboard.Access this link to see a sample assessment showing all 8 question types:

Fill in the Blank: Fill in the Blank questions allow you to enter one or more blanks per question, and provide an answer for each. As you write text, use brackets around the portion you want students to fill in. Remind students to check their spelling as Gooru doesn't auto correct or spell check what students write. For example: The big bad [wolf] blew down the [house].
Multiple Choice: Multiple Choice questions can provide between two and ten answer choices, with one correct answer. Indicate which answer is correct by selecting the check mark. To delete an answer option, click on the trash icon.
Multiple Answer: Multiple Answer questions can provide between two and ten answer choices. Students must select either "Yes" or "No" for each answer choice. All answer choices must be labeled correctly for the question to be scored as correct. You can add up to ten answer choices and select one or more correct answers. Indicate which answer is correct by selecting the check mark on the Yes column. To delete an answer choice, click on the trash icon.
True/False: True/False questions provide a statement that can be labeled as “True” or “False”.
Drag and Drop Order: Drag Drop order questions will scramble up to ten answers that students will put back into the correct order. Write your answers in the correct order; they will be randomized for students.
Highlight Text: These questions allow students to highlight individual words or sentences within a text. Use brackets to indicate which words students should highlight. One bracket can only contain one word at a time. For example: The [big] bad wolf blew [down] the house.
If you want students to select a sentence from within a paragraph, please make sure that all sentences end with a period, and that your bracket include the period at the end of the sentence. One bracket can only contain one sentence at a time. For example: The first little pig built his house of straw. [The big bad wolf blew down the house.] The second pig built his house of wood.
Multi-Select Image: Multi-Select Image questions allow students to select which images are the right answer for the question. You can add up to ten answer images and select one or more correct answers. You can load an image from the web or from a file on your computer. Indicate which answer is correct by selecting the check mark. To delete an answer image, click on the trash icon.
Multi-Select Text: Multi-Select Text questions are similar to Multiple Answer questions, but with an important difference: students only need to select the correct answer(s). You can add up to ten answer choices and select one or more correct answers. Indicate which answer is correct by selecting the check mark. To delete an answer choice, click on the trash icon.
Free Response: Ask students to write their responses to a prompt. Free Response questions are only available in collections.
