What is the Checkpoint template?

The Checkpoint template is a formative assessment that allows your learners to test their own knowledge in practice quizzes throughout your course. As Checkpoint templates are only practice quizzes, learners can attempt to retry the questions as many times as they wish.

There are many types of questions types that can be found in the Checkpoint template:

  1. Multiple Choice: Requires learners to answer a classic multiple-choice style question
  2. Multiple Image Choice: Requires learners to answer a question by selecting the correct answer from a range of images
  3. True/False: Requires learners to answer a classic true/false style question
  4. True/False (Multiple): Requires learners to answer multiple classic true/false style questions
  5. Input Text: Requires learners to answer a question by typing the answer in an available box
  6. Drag Ticks: Requires learners to drag ticks onto the correct description or label
  7. Drag Multiple: Requires learners to drag potential answers to a question into waiting spaces
  8. Drag N Drop: Requires learners to drag images onto their correct descriptions or labels
  9. Match Sequence: Requires learners to match a list of options with their respective answers
  10. Match Corresponding: Requires learners to match a list of options with their respective answers
  11. Drop Down: Requires learners to answer questions by selecting the answer from a drop-down menu
