The Resequence question type is great if you want to assess students on their ability to place items in sequential order (ex: steps to a math problem, order of historical events). To create a Resequence question: 

  1. Click on the blue + button

  2. Choose "Resequence" from the Question types

  3. List items in sequential order. This will be the answer key for auto-grading.

*The item order will randomly scramble for each student.

If you switch on Partial Credit, your students will get credit for answering part of the question correct.

How we grade the "Allow Partial Credit" feature in Resequence questions

Note: the item must be in the exact same place as the answer key to be graded as correct.

Let's take a look at an example of how this works in practice. Here is a Resequence answer key:
