How do I make Highlight questions?

Highlight questions require students to select particular words or phrases from within a passage of text. Students are required to highlight certain words, based on a question prompt.

Highlight questions can only be created within Smart Lessons and Assessments

Enter a prompt in the Question Prompt section.

Highlight the words which students will have to consider as 'correct' answers.

Once you've done that, you'll be able select the correct answers. 

You have the option of adding supporting media like images, sound, or videos.
