In the Matching & Sorting Question, the user is asked to match a set of Items with a set of Options. If the options represent ranks (orders) , the question looks like (becomes) a Sorting Question.
We start creating our question (as in all questions) by typing our question in the Question Title section.
In this case, items and a pool of options are created. The user matches each item with an option in the options pool. It is possible to set up to how many times each option (added to the options pool) can be matched with an item.
In this case, while the items are created, unique options are added to each item. In this case, we do not use the Options Pool.
You can offer many items to the user, but you may require selection for only some of these items
For example, you might want to create five items, each one to be a Country, and only match two with one of the two options: My first option, My second option
After preparing your question, you can determine how much the Success Rate will be increased for each item, when the user makes the match . For this, we will add the Automatic Scoring Rule to each item. If the user performs the relevant matching, the Contribution Rate that we will express in this rule is added to the Success Rate that the user will obtain from the question.
In the screen below; If the User matches the Germany item with "My First option", we ensure that the system achieves the user Full Success (100%) from this question
As a result, the user matches a few items and achieves a Success Rate of -100% to 100%. As we will see on the Point and Dimensions page, this success rate multiplies by the point of the question and affects the exam result. For example, if the user has 100% success from a question and the point is 2, the exam score (100% x 2 =) is increased by 2 points.
For example, in the question below, we added 4 countries as items and then we entered 3 options for all. The user chose the right option for all items. Now how do we ensure that the user achieves Full Success (100%) from this question and what should be the point of this question?
In this question, we will add one Automatic Scoring Rule for each item and the Contribution Rate of all will be 25%. This way the user will get 100% if he/she chooses the right option for all 4 items.
Finally, we make the point value of this question 4 because this question actually has 4 matches. Of course, you can also set the point of the question as 1 , but in this case, as a result of the matches in this question, you can earn at most 1 point.
