For example, if the question asks a student to classify statements as true or false, there would be two columns.

In most cases, only one row will be required; however, if necessary, add additional rows and title accordingly.

6. Add the answers in ALPHABETICAL ORDER to the “Possible responses,” by clicking “+ADD”.

Responses can be grouped if desired. For example, an AP question may have students match the origin or insertion of muscles. So, the instructor can group the “Origin” responses and “Insertion” responses.
