How do I make a question containing the sound recorder?

Sound Recorder Questions provide your students with an opportunity to record their voice in response to a prompt.

Sound Recorder Questions can be used in Extended Response sections of a Smart Lesson. Including them in other section types, such as Quiz sections, may not work correctly. For more information, see Which question types can I use in each Smart Lesson section?

You can listen to your students' recordings from the Control Panel. For more information, see How do I give my students feedback on their extended responses?

Select an existing Extended Response section, or add a new Extended Response section to your Smart Lesson, then select Sound Recorder as your question type.

Provide a Question Prompt

Type your question into the Question Prompt box. This question can be as open-ended as you like.

Add an image, video or sound clip

As you type your prompt, images which may be relevant will appear under Supporting Media. Click any one of these to add it to your question. 

Alternatively, click on either Image, Video, or Sound to search our full media galleries or upload your own piece of media. As an example, instead of a written prompt you could upload a recording of yourself asking a question which students are to answer. For more information on finding or uploading media, see How do I add media to my question?

Pick a different question layout

Expand Layouts and click any of the different styles to change where your question text, answer box and media will be displayed. See how the question looks in each layout by clicking Preview after selecting a different style. 

Save your question

When you're happy with your changes, give the question a name by clicking Question Title, then click Save Question. You can then choose another question type under Create another to add more questions, or click Save lesson if you're finished making changes.
