Quick Tips: Eliminating Answers
Did you know that when you create a benchmark test you can have our system automatically eliminate an incorrect answer?
This option can be found in Step 2 of the Benchmark process.
By default, the “Number of Answers per Question” option is set at 4, but you can change this is a simple mouse click. If you choose to have three answers per question, when students take the test they will see one answer already eliminated for them.
Additionally, students can always choose to eliminate answers on any test they take. This can be helpful when students want to narrow their own choices for a question. Simply directing the mouse an answer choice will highlight that choice. To the right of an answer is the “Eliminate” link.
Clicking this will eliminate the answer for the student, which will be represented by the answer being “grayed out” with a line through it. The answer can easily be reactivated by clicking the “Reactivate” link.
These options can help both teachers and students improve scores and reduce test-taking anxieties.
