Import Word Documents into ALL In Learning


Which is best: Importing a Word file or attaching it? 

  • Attach a Word Document if you will be using a hard copy of the test. Just create a key and attach the word document (or PDF, etc.) so others can easily print it and administer the test. 
  • Import a Word Document if you need multiple choice (or multipart) questions to display on screen, or to create items that can be used to build tests. (Note: We also recommend importing a PDF with an answer key for many scenarios, such as reading passages with questions.)

How to Import Questions from a Word Document 

Before importing, note:

  • Documents must be .docx files (Word 2007 or later, or downloaded as docx from Google Docs).
  • Review questions after importing to correct or adjust any importing issues.

First, Format the Word Document Correctly

  1. Name the Assessment. The name of the Word file will become the default name of the assessment.


    (After importing, you can rename it in the Lessons tab > My Assessments > Actions > Properties.)

  2. Format your questions. Questions numbers must be formatted using a Numbered List followed by the text and/or image. 


    Multipart Questions
    District administrators can create Multipart questions in the Word Import process. To do so, only put the question for Part A in your document followed by all of the answers for both parts A and B, like this: 

    You'll be able to add the Part B question and designate its correct answer in a later step!

  3. Format the answers. Multiple Choice answer options must be formatted using a Numbered List, and be formatted as: A. B. C. D.

    Answer options must be formatted in one column, not two columns.


  4. If your question has an image, it must be placed between the question stem and the answer options:


  5. Indicate the correct answer. Multiple Choice questions: Indicate the correct answer like this: ANS: B

    Need to designate multiple correct (multiselect) answers? After you import, you can designate multiple correct by selecting the question slide and adding more correct answers. See this article for more information on multiple correct. 


Then, Import the Word Document Into ALL In Learning

  1. Log into your ALL In Learning account.

  2. Click the Lessons/Assessments tab, click "My Assessments," and choose "Create New."

  3. Under "Import," select "Powerpoint or Word."


  4. Click "Choose File," navigate to your Word document (must be .docx file extension), select it, and click "Open."

    Note that after choosing your file you will see this alert message in the green box, even if your file is formatted:

  5. File in the other required fields, like Grade, Subject, and Description, then click "Next."

    Your imported assessment will open in the Assessment Editor. 

  6. Select a thumbnail on the left (see box 1 in the image below) to make these adjustments:

      • To edit a question's appearance or text
      • To change (or add multiple) correct answers, make changes in the question properties panel (box 2 in image below).
      • To add standards, click "Add Standards" (box 2 in image below) and then select and apply the standards (box 3 in image below).


  7. District Administrators can make these additional adjustments by selecting the question's thumbnail (box 1 in the image below) and clicking "Edit Question" in Question Properties (box 2 in the image below):

      • To make answers display in two columns for students, enable "Display in Two Columns After Save" (in box 4 in the image below).

      • To make a Multipart question with a Part A and Part B, enable "Display Second Question Stem" (in box 4 in the image above), and type in the 2nd question stem. (Note all the answer choices need to be included during the import under Part A.)

        Then scroll down and click Save Question.

        Then be sure to select the correct answers for both parts in the Question Properties (see box 2 in the image above).

        Note: These features are only available for questions imported from Word. 
        Also note: The Multipart question feature does not work with "Display in Two Columns After Save" enabled. 

  8. Once the assessment is completed, click Save. Then click "Back to My Lessons / Assessments" (upper right).
