Hello, Desred!

Thank you for posting here. We can suggest using Fill in the Blank question for a sentence like you mentioned. If it does not satisfy your needs, please send a feature request to support@ispringsolutions.com
We will be happy to send it to our Development team to consider.

maybe I haven' made my self clear
say I want to accept the following answers in a fill the blank question

I told her she that was wrong.
I told her she that was wrong
i told her she that was wrong.
i told her she that was wrong
I told her she was wrong.
I told her she was wrong
i told her she was wrong.
i told her she was wrong

that seems a lot of work so is there a way I can write one sentence with in built options.

Hello!

I like and absolutely support Desred's idea. if I want a quiz-taker to type a whole sentence (for example, to translate from Russian into English) it would be much easier to indicate which words are optional.

So, if a word is indicated as optional - the quiz-taker's answer will be accepted as correct (with or without this word).

And this easier and less time consuming than entering the same sentence for many times just because some words are not important. The same can be applied to punctuation marks.

Sincerely,
Dmitry

Hello, Dmitry!

Thank you for posting here!
Please refer to the link posted above. When choosing a Type In question, a number of acceptable answers can be added, including omitted words and punctuation.

Hope my explanation was helpful.

Have a nice day!

Hi Olga
this is what I mean, this is taken from my moodle site on their quizmaker

Wildcard usage
You can use the asterisk character (*) as a wildcard to match any series of characters. For example, use ran*ing to match any word or phrase starting with ran and ending with ing. If you really do want to match an asterisk then use a backslash like this: \*

If you want one question with the two answers fuel and oxygen, you ought to be able to limit the number of variants by writing fuel*oxygen 100%. This would accept "fuel oxygen", "fuel, oxygen", "fuel; oxygen", "fuel and oxygen", "fuel & oxygen" "fuel oxygen", "fuel und oxygen" "fuel&&oxygen". It would even accept "fuel or oxygen", "fuel but not oxygen" "fuel|oxygen" which might not be so good but you can never be completely safe!

Here are some answers and scores for a question "What does a rocket burn?".


Hope that helps :-)

Hello, Desred!

Unfortunately, this scenario is not possible in our QuizMaker.
