What types of questions are in Education Perfect?

We have a wide range of content to fulfil your teaching needs.

Content Categories

Education Perfect content can be split into three major categories:

Content Categories
Assessments There are a range of assessment options available that can include different media, question styles and reporting options.
Lists These are useful for learning words and phrases.
Smart Lessons The content of these lessons are more flexible than that of lists. They can contain a number of different kinds of media and question styles.

Question Types

Smart Lessons & Assessments

For Smart Lessons and Assessments, questions can be split into either self-marked or auto-marked. With Smart Lessons, these are self-marked by the student and can also be opened to peer review. Self-marking can also be enabled for Assessments, but these are marked by a teacher by default. 

For Assessments, auto-marking is done automatically where possible, but you're still given the option of  overriding these marks. 

Quiz & Auto-marked 
Multi-choice  A question is presented and student must select the correct answer.
Fill-in-the-Gaps A passage of text with one or more words omitted from it are displayed along with a number of possible answers which need to be dragged into the correct space.
Fill-in-the-Gaps (Texbox) A passage of text with one or more words omitted from it are displayed. Possible answers can be displayed or hidden. Students must then enter the correct word in each space. This type of question can be made in our Content Editor, but not from our question templates.
Highlight Different sections within a passage are highlighted which students are to select between based on a question prompt.

Questions are posed on sections of a passage of text and students are required to select an answer from a list (similar to multi-choice questions). 
Dropdown Dropdown questions
Extended Response & Manually-marked
Long-Answer Students are asked to write one or more sentences based on a prompt.
Sound Recorder Students are asked to record a verbal answer to a question.

These are particularly useful for learning and testing pronunciation.
Scratchpad Students are asked to draw something based on a prompt.
Maths Input Questions Students are required to answer a question and show their working. 

These questions can be complex to make, but can be created in our Content Editor.
Uploader Students can upload a range of file types such as documents, images, videos or audio files as a response to a question.


All Lists are entirely auto-marked.

List Types
Translation Lists Translation lists help students revise their vocabulary.

You can easily set up your own translation lists by typing them out, importing them from another list or spreadsheet, or emailing them through to us at content@educationperfect.com

They contain five learning modes. In Italian, for example, these are:
  • Reading mode (Italian text to English text)
  • Listening mode (Spoken Italian to English text)
  • Dictation (Spoken Italian to Italian text)
  • Writing mode (English text to Italian text)
  • Speaking mode (English text to spoken Italian)

Our translation lists include native speaker pronunciation and are designed to encourage spaced repetition. Students are awarded points for learning a word and for revising words over time.

Fact List Fact Lists test technical vocabulary and are exclusive to non-language subjects. Just like a Translation List, you can type out your own information or import from another list or spreadsheet.

Spelling List Spelling Lists test spelling. Each word is paired with a sentence to give words more context. You can either create your own set of spelling words or import from another list or spreadsheet.
