Upload Test using template

Upload Word file to Create Test

You can use EduBrite's pre-formatted word templates to create tests and questions in offline manner. We recomend this approach if you like to create questions with equations. Word has built in equation editor which can be very handy in using this approach to create your questions. Another approach for adding equations is to use Math Type's online service

The word document  follows a tabular structure. The first table defines test's basic information and remaining document contains one table each for each question.

Sample Word Templates

Here are few sample test templates in MS Word format

Steps to create questions in Word Document

  • Each question has to be entered in a table, with first row of the table used for entering question text, and following rows for choices.
  • Number of columns in each row has to strictly match the template, however number of choice rows can vary.
  • Correct choice(s) are marked by entering Yes in the second column in choice rows.
  • The last row in the question table is special, as it is used for entering question specific solution or explanation. Solutions are shown to the student after they finish the test.
  • You can enter a passage (which is used for adding directions for multiple questions... e.g. a reading comprehension section) also, and it is shown in the example test document as well. Passage table has only 1 row, with title, description and number of questions in each column
  • The document must have a special table (1st table) in the beginning which captures information about the test. You can leave all columns blank except the onces filled in the example
  • Once you have the test document ready with questions, you can upload it. In case you have any equations or special objects in the document, you need to convert the document to Html first
    • Save it as html in a separate folder using Word's Save As Web page option. 

  • You should change some settings while saving as html
  • Pictures Tab -
    • select - Enable PNG as an output format
    • Pixel per inch - 120
  • Encoding Tab - select Unicode UTF -8

 

  • Formatting tips in word - before you save the document as web page, use the resizing (stretching) to make your embedded equations appear nice when viewing the document in 100% zoom (check the attached document with equations). The size of generated images (PNGs) will be based on the equations width and height.
  • Zip the generated html and resulting images (including any folder for images) in a single zip file
  • Upload this zip file as a new test by going to Test->Upload Test menu
  • You can also upload this, in an existing test from inside the test editor, click on Word icon.
  • Note that If you don't have equations in the word, you can directly upload it without going thru Save As and Zip steps
