Text matching question consists of two rows of text represented by jigsaw pieces. Matching questions consist of two columns and learners must match an item in the first column with a response in the second column. It is an ideal eLearning assessment method for learners who may not have strong reading comprehension skills, as they are only required to connect key concepts or ideas instead of writing a detailed explanation.
Multiple choice and True or False questions may be the most popular method of inquiry in eLearning courses, but matching questions offer their fair share of benefits. By using this two-column assessment tool, you can find out if your learners are truly comprehending the subject matter without having to create a series of questions.
This is a short video tutorial on how to create a text matching question.
