PlugIn Questions

The plugin question type allows for an unlimited number of question types.

Question Writer Plugin Question

Plugin Questions allow you to ask any type of question, with any type of layout or display, and any type of scoring logic.  They are created as Javascript objects and must conform to the interface laid out here.  The javascript contains all the layout code and scoring logic.

You select and add your .js file using the browser that appears when you click on Select File in the Plugin File field.  Question Writer then provides the file with the parameters and options of the question.

Plugin Questions can also use content that is entered in Question Writer. This means that a programmer is only required to create the initial question type – the content can be supplied through the usual Question Writer interface. And once a Plugin Question is created, it can be used over and over again in different quizzes

When you download Question Writer you will find three sample Plugin Questions.  Look in the samples directory to open the ‘PluginQuestions.qwz’ file in Question Writer. View the quiz here, to see how the questions integrate seamlessly into a quiz.
