RapidQandA โ€” the fastest way to create your quizzes and lessons from plain old text.

๐Ÿ“„ Example lessons

The easiest way to learn RapidQandA is to look at some examples. All of these are also included in the Example quizzes book in RapidQandAโ€™s remote library.

Each quiz introduces a new feature, so take a look at each one. Play the lesson in RapidQandA first, and then take a look at the text that was used to create the lesson.

Capital cities of Europe: multiple choice questions

This is the simplest lesson. All it includes is a set of multiple choice questions with a single answer to each.

  1. Play the lesson in RapidQandA.
  2. Take a look at the Capital cities of Europe text.

Here is a part of that lesson:

(?) What is the capital of Spain?
= Madrid
x Barcelona
x Seville
x Valencia

Hopefully, you can see how easy it is to write the quiz. The text is broken down into a set of problems or questions by using special indicators.

The parentheses around the question mark are optional, but they normally make it easier to identify the question.

โš ๏ธ Make sure you have a space or right-hand bracket after the indicator, otherwise it wonโ€™t be recognised as such.

Famous authors: multiple choice question with more than one possible answer

Here is another simple lesson. Again, it just comprises a number of questions. The only difference is that the questions have more than one answer starting with an equals sign. Thatโ€™s because thereโ€™s more than one possible right answer.

  1. Play the lesson in RapidQandA.
  2. Take a look at the Famous authors text.

Again, here is part of that lesson.

(?) Which of these books are by Chaucer?
= The Canterbury tales
= Troilus and Criseyde
x The divine comedy
x Purgatorio

Animals: introductions

Sometimes you will want to give the reader a bit more information about the question that follows. This is done by adding a introduction item. The introduction item begins with the character i. Again, you can put this in parentheses to make it clearer like this (i). Theyโ€™ll both work.

In this lesson, each question has some introductory text.

  1. Play the lesson in RapidQandA.
  2. Take a look at the Animals text.

Here is an extract showing the introduction:

(i) This is a short quiz about animals. Have a go and see how much you know.
(?) Which of these animals is only found in South America?
= White headed capuchin monkey
x Vervet monkey
x Samango monkey
x Black and white colobus monkey
