With the Matching question type, you can ask students to match terms, symbols, pictures, and more!  To create one:

  1. Click on the "+" icon
  2. Choose "Matching" from the blue icons
  3. Type two items you want students to match:

Click "+Add Matching Set" to add as many matches as you wish.  This is your answer key, so be sure to list matching terms next to one another in the same row.  Formative will take care of scrambling them for your students!

Switch on "Allow Partial Credit" to take auto-grading up a notch by allowing your students to get credit for answering part of the question correct.

Need students to be able to drag items into more than one category? Click on the link below to learn how to do that with our Categorize question type!
