Here's the Single Choice Set we'll create in this tutorial.

When to use Single Choice Set questions

Single Choice Set questions can be used for testing skills related to any topic, and can be an effective assessment tool. With immediate feedback and a summary at the end, user learning is reinforced. Single Choice Set features sound effects for correct and wrong (sound effects may be turned off).

Single Choice Set questions can be used alone or integrated into other content types, such as Interactive Videos or Presentations. Either way, they are created in the same way.

Prerequisites

Make sure H5P is up and running 

If this is the first time you are using H5P, you should start off by reading this guide to ensure you are up and running with H5P on your platform. 

Alternatively, you can test drive H5P right here on h5p.org and skip to step 1.

Make sure your platform can create Single Choice Set questions

Navigate to the menu that enables you to create new content

If you can’t find the Single Choice Set question content type in the list:

  1. Download the .h5p file you can find here

  2. Select the Upload option when creating a new H5P

  3. Upload the file from step 1

  4. Press Save

You will now find Single Choice Set question in the Content type list when creating a new H5P.

Step 1: Topic

Let's say you want to create a Single Choice Set question about Goji berries. We'll create the test example from Examples and downloads page.

Step 2: Create Single Choice Set

Head over to where you usually create new content on your platform. Select the Create option for H5P and choose Single Choice Set from the list of Content types. The top part of the editor looks like this:

In this tutorial we'll focus on creating the Single Choice Set question content. The content creation happens in the top part of the editor, so we'll only focus on this for now.

The Single Choice Set question content type consists of a question and a set of alternatives. The Question is used to introduce the problem to be solved, and the alternatives are the possible answers the learner can choose from.

Step 3: Question and Alternatives

Write the first question under Question and enter the three alternatives under ‘Alternatives’. In order to create additional alternatives press the ‘Add answer’ button. The first (top) answering alternative is always the correct one. But don't worry, the answering alternatives will be randomized in the end user view. Also remember that you can only have one correct answering alternative for each question.

Fill in the rest of the alternatives.

The Single Choice Editor should now look like this:

Step 4: Add Question

You can add additional questions by clicking the ‘Add question’ button.Click 'add question' and fill in the newly added question with alternatives.

 Fill in your third question so that your editor looks somewhat like this:

Step 5: Re-ordering

You may change the order of questions by pressing the

 button in the top left corner of the Question & Alternatives, drag and drop within the List of questions.

You can also change the order of the alternatives in the same way. Just use the

 button in the top left corner of the alternative. Just remember the top alternative is the correct one. You can delete the question & alternatives  or alternative by using the  button in the top right corner.

You will have something like this when you swap the second and third alternatives of the third question:

Step 6: Finishing up

Press Save/create when you are done!

You should now have the same result as the example.
