How to use the Passage with Question Tool

Just like the Video with Questions Tool and the Audio with Questions Tool, you can take any text that you’ve brought into Ogment, drag it into a lesson, and then add questions to it—in this case, the questions appear alongside of the passage (to the right of the text), so students can easily reference the text to answer questions about it.

  1. Click on the “Tools” tab on the left side of the lesson editor.
  2. Drag and drop Passage with Questions into the lesson.

  3. Click the “pencil” icon.

    The Passage with Questions editor will open.
  4. Add directions if you’d like.

  5. Drag and drop an article (all pieces of text are labeled “Article”) from your resources into the blue box.

    Here’s how the text will appear:

  6. Now switch back to the “Tools” tab and choose a question type to add to the passage.
  7. Drag the question type and drop it on top of the passage.

  8. Author the question as you would normally do. For more information on how to author questions and the different question types that are available, see “How to work with Question Types” <link to Lesson-Questions>.
  9. To preview the question, hit the “preview” button within the question type.
  10. To preview all of the questions as they appear within the passage, preview the lesson.
