Dropdown Cloze

Dropdowns or cloze questions ask students to fill in missing words in a sentence.


Edit the question prompt or sentence: 

The initial sentence prompt is between <p> tags before any of the dropdowns. To create the sentence blanks, use underscores to create a line.

<p>Complete the following sentence by choosing from the lists of options.</p><p><strong>The client is at highest risk for developing _______________ as evidenced by the client's ______________.</strong></p>


Add or delete new dropdowns:

EdX uses the <optionresponse> tag to note a dropdown, the <label> tag to mark the question text, and <optioninput> and <option> for the dropdown answer choices. If you need to add an additional dropdown, copy and paste everything from <optionresponse> to </optionresponse>

<optionresponse>
<label><strong>the fetal heart rate should</strong></label>
<optioninput>
<option correct="True">increase</option>
<option correct="False">decrease</option>
</optioninput>
</optionresponse>


Edit the dropdown options:

To add, remove, or edit dropdown options, edit the options within the <optioninput> tag. Each <option> tag also includes a correctness modifier of true or false. If you edit an option, be sure to also change the answer correctness.

<optioninput>
<option correct="True">increase</option>
<option correct="False">decrease</option>
</optioninput>
