ii. Question Types
ClassIn supports three different types that you can use to create your test: Multiple Choice (single selection and multiple selection) and True or False.
You can use Multiple Choice when you offer varied answers to a question, and you can choose single selection or multiple selections. Here you can set up to 24 different answers. You can use True / False for closed questions that the answer is ‘true’ or ‘false’.
- Multiple choice with single selection: Click on the “Single Choice” and then type a question in the box, and then add choices. You can add up to 24 choices. You can add images to the question description and the choices. You can reorder answer choices by clicking on the arrows next to the choices. Identify the correct answer by clicking on the alphabet.

Then you can add test questions to the paper by importing questions that are already added into your Question Bank, or you can create new questions by clicking on a question type: Multiple Choice Question with Single Selection and Multiple Selection and True or False question.
You can add up to 200 questions in one test sheet, and can custom the full mark by adjusting points for each question. A test's score consists of the sum total of all the questions' points. Full mark cannot exceed 100 scores.
