'Optional Elements

A title can be imported with each question. If a title is not provided for a question, the first 20 characters from the question wording will be used as the question title. Titles must be placed at the beginning of a question and begin with "Title:" followed by the actual text for the title. If the title exceeds 20 characters, the remaining characters will be dropped during the import.

Example: Title: Speed of Light
3) Who determined the exact speed of light?
a. Albert Einstein
b. Albert Michelson

For questions being imported to an Exam file, correct answers can be indicated in two ways. First, you may place an asterisk (*) directly in front of the answer choice (do not put a space between the asterisk and the answer choice).

 Example: 3) Who determined the exact speed of light?
a. Albert Einstein
b. Albert Michelson
c. Thomas Edison
d. Guglielmo Marconi

The second option is to place a list of correct answers at the end of the file. The list must begin with the word "Answers:" and the answers should start on the following line (no blank lines are allowed). Note that any text after the answer list will be ignored.

 Example: Answers:
1. A
2. B
3. C
