Creating an Adaptive Question

Adaptive Question Designer questions can be used to create an adaptive multipart question in which the student is presented with one subquestion, or section, at a time, and the question behavior depends on whether the student answers the subquestion correctly.

You can use an adaptive question to give students another chance when they give an incorrect response, perhaps by walking them through the steps of the problem, letting them try a simpler version of the question before retrying the original problem, or letting them try the same question again for reduced credit.

Adaptive questions are created through the Question Editor, and support all types of response areas that can be automatically graded (essay questions cannot be used in adaptive questions).

Please watch the following video to help guide you through the process of adding Adaptive sections to a question using the Question Designer.
