With the Categorize question type, you can ask students to place items into categories and assess them on a variety of concepts (different types of numbers, species, when historical events took place). To create one:

  1. Click on the blue + button (or the "add" icon in the more recent version)

  2. Choose "Categorize" from the Question types

  3. Add items for students to drag into categories

  4. Enter category labels

  5. Drag items into one or more categories to set the answer key. This enables auto-grading!

You can add additional categories and/or items by selecting the "+Draggable Item" or "+Category" icon below each!

Switch on the ability to allow **Partial Credit for Categorize question types to take auto-grading up a notch by allowing your students to get credit for answering part of the question correct:
