Case study questions within larger question bank

Sep 19, 2019

I'm looking for thoughts on the best way to include case study questions within a larger test bank. I've got about 50 questions and only three pertain to the case. At the moment I'm thinking the best way to do this is repeat the scenario in conjunction with each question, but would like other's thoughts on better solutions. Coming up soon I'm going to have another project where a larger case study will be part of a test bank (about 25% of those questions will apply to the case and the case will involve quite a bit of text as back story). Thanks in advance!

Hello Stephen and welcome to E-Learning Heroes :)

Thanks for reaching out and sharing what you would like to create within your project.

I'm not sure that I'm following what you need, so I'd like to understand so that I can help.

You mention having a question bank of 50 questions, but only needing 3? Can you explain the layout of the course a bit better and what that means or what issue you're running into?

Thanks so much!

Thank you Leslie! For this project I have 50 questions as part of a review, but only three of those fifty correspond to a testlet scenario. So essentially I was wondering the best way to present a testlet within a larger test bank? I think I found a workaround from another post; putting a button on the slide of the three applicable questions saying "Read Scenario" (then having it provide the applicable background info) but I'm wondering if there was another way to achieve this?

Hi Stephen,

If those three questions are the only ones that are required to reference a testlet scenario, I think what you mentioned may be the best solution. Adding a button to each of those slides that open up a layer with the relevant scenario to be read. 

When the reader is done, they can close the layer, and then proceed with the question. Let me know if you're thinking something different and we can further discuss!
