The Type Answer Quiz is perfect for when you want to test the participants’ ability to figure out the correct answer without having options to choose from! The participants need to type the correct answer (or versions of it, see below!) before the time to answer is up.
How to create a Type Answer question:
- Add a new slide
- Choose the ‘Type Answer’ Quiz competition type
- Enter your question
- Enter the correct answer to display. This will show up on the presentation screen when the time to answer has run out or everyone has answered
- Optionally, you can add other acceptable answers. These will not be shown on the presentation screen but if a participant enters an answer that match any of these it will also be marked as correct
This is how it will look when you present the Type Answer Quiz:
Handle correct answers that are marked as incorrect
Once everyone has answered, or the time has run out, all answers will be displayed on the presentation screen. The answers matching the correct (or acceptable) answers you entered when creating the quiz will automatically be awarded points. You will see the correct answers indicated with green checkmarks, and the incorrect ones marked with red cross icons.
Should you see an answer that is actually correct, but that you didn’t enter beforehand, you can simply click on the cross icon to change its status to correct. There is also an option to hide certain answers that you don’t want displayed. You can also do all these actions from the Mentimote.
