Splitting words exercise type
Oct 08, 2012
I'm looking for a way to create a special kind of exercise in which the students gets a text of which all spaces have been removed. His task would then be to add to spaces to show he knows the words and their spelling.
Has any of you created that kind of exercise ? What is the best way to make it ?
I've used a text entry and made the unspaced text the default text.
The student has to click on the entry and use left and right arrow keys to navigate and add the spaces.
The problem is that the student can't really click on a special portion of the text. Everything gets selected at once.
Also it often happens that the whole text gets erased because they select the whole thing and press any key.
To finish with, sometimes the user's answer is correct but the computer indicates a wrong answer. I don't get why. I'm thinking maybe because of the apostrophes...
Last thing, one very convenient thing would be to be able to have a virtual keyboard for some letters that exist only un French : "é", "è", "'" (apostrophe).
Does that seem doable ?
