You may choose to include the correct answer and/or an optional
explanation of the question and the intended student response.
Questions and Section Breaks can be tied together logically using
references. Typically, this feature is used to allow a graphic or reading
passage to precede a set of associated questions. EZ Test uses the
reference field to maintain this association.
· References should be a unique string of characters and placed in the
Is Reference field of the Section Break and each associated
question’s Uses Referencefield. When EZ Test sorts or scrambles
questions, it keeps questions with common references together
preceded by the section break.
Note:When scrambling questions, section breaks which are references, yet have
no questions in the test referencing them, will not be included when the test is
previewed or saved.
· Long is an optional checkbox that allows you to specify that a
question is permitted to span pages on output. That is, if you create a
question that is longer than 1 printed page, this checkbox MUST be
checked or else the output pagination will not be correct and may
result in a question flowing off the page and loss of information on the
· Page is an optional field that may be used to indicate on which
textbook page(s), a particular question's subject matter is discussed.
This field is only displayed in the answer key.
