There are two methods of getting a Word document into ALL In Learning:
- Attach a Word Document (or other file types) to an Assessment - This is the easiest way if you (or other teachers you may share the assessment with) will need to print a hard copy of the test. Just create your key in ALL In Learning and attach the word document so anyone you share the key with will have the word doc to print out. Here are steps to create a key. Here are steps to attach a word document.
- Import Questions from a Word Document - If you want the questions to display on screen, or want to turn them into items that can be used to build tests, then you can format and import the Word document so questions into ALL In Learning. (Note: We also recommend importing a PDF with an answer key for many scenarios, like a test that consists of reading passages with questions.)
This article deals with the second option: Importing questions from a Word document.
How to Import Questions from a Word Document
Before importing, note:
- You'll need to do some simple formatting of your Word file so that ALL In Learning can recognize the various parts. Instructions follow.
- Some elements may not import correctly, so review each question after importing.
- Documents must be .docx files (Word 2007 or later).
First, Format the Word Document Correctly
- Name the Assessment.
The name of the Word document will become the name of the assessment.
(After importing, you can rename it in the Lessons tab > My Assessments > Actions > Properties.)
- Indicate the Question Type for each section of questions.
You can import these question types: Multiple Choice, Yes/No, True/False, Short Answer, and Rubric (a slider rubric for grading student work, which you can replace with a full rubric after importing). Learn all about these question types here.
Before a section of questions of a given question type, put "QTYPE:" followed by the question type code, as follows:
If the next question is the same type, you do not need to indicate the question type again, but any time the next question is a different type, you must indicate the question type change.
- Format your questions.
Questions numbers must be formatted using a Numbered List followed by the text and/or image.
- Multiple Choice answer options must be formatted using a Numbered List, and be formatted as: A. B. C. D.
True/False questions must be formatted as T. F.
Yes/No questions must be formatted as Y. N.
Answer options must be formatted in one column, not two columns.
If your question has an image, it must be placed between the question stem and the answer options:
- Then indicate the correct answer.
Multiple Choice questions: Indicate the correct answer like this: ANS: B
Yes/No questions: Indicate the correct answer like this: ANS: Y
True/Falsequestions: Indicate the correct answer like this: ANS: T
Short Answer questions: Type the answer exactly as it should be counted correct (case sensitive). (Example: "ANS: Abraham Lincoln") (You can manually count variations as correct later during grading.)
Rubric questions (rubric slider for grading student work): Enter a number from 1-100. (Example: "ANS: 10") This will represent the granularity by which you can reduce points. See more on rubric slider grading here.
Note: Word Import does not support multiple correct options at this time. However, you can change your answer to multiple correct after the import by selecting the question slide and adding more correct answers. See this article for more information on multiple correct.
