In this tutorial you will learn:

  • When to use Question sets
  • How to create a Question set


Here's the Question set we'll create in this tutorial:

When to use Question sets

Question sets are useful when you want to create a sequence of problems, as opposed to multiple individual problems, for the learner to solve.

Use Questions sets to assess the learners' ability to reproduce key concepts of a compound learning material. Question sets can for instance be used as end-of-chapter tests or as a final course exam. You may use multiple quiz types, including Multichoice, Fill in the blanks, and Drag and Drop questions, to offer variation in your Questions sets. 

Question sets can only be used stand-alone. 


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 Question sets

Navigate to the menu that enables you to create new content. In Drupal, you select Interactive content. In WordPress you press Add new under H5P Content in the admin menu. In WordPress you select H5P Content and Add new from the admin menu. Select the Create option for H5P. If you find Question set in the list of Content types, skip to Step 1.

If you can’t find the Question set 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 Question set in the Content type list when creating a new H5P.

Step 1: Topic

In this tutorial, we'll use the example content from the Multichoice questionDrag and drop question and Fill in the blanks tutorials. As usual, berries are our overall topic :)

Step 2: Creating a Question set

Head over to where you usually create new content on your platform. In Drupal you go to Create content and select Interactive content. In Joomla you create an article and press the H5P button below the article. In Wordpress you go to the admin dashboard and into the H5P Content menu. Then select the Create option for H5P and choose Question set from the list of Content types

Step 3: Question set editor

The Question set editor should now appear. The top part of the editor looks like this:

In this tutorial we'll focus on creating the Question set content. This happens in the top part of the editor, so we won't bother with the the Common fields and the lower parts of the editor.

The top part of the Question set editor consists of:

  • general settings at the top including Background image, Progress indicator and Pass percentage
  • a Questions sections in the middle, where we add the various quiz tasks
  • customizable text fields at the bottom, including Quiz introduction and Quiz finished: Your result:

Step 4: Background image

You can add a Background image that is displayed behind the various quiz tasks inlcuded in your Question set.

In this tutorial, we'll use the background below:


This picture is a modified version of a Public Domain picture found on Wikimedia Commons

Step 5: Progress indicator

You can chosse between a textual indicator and dots. We'll use Textual in this tutorial. 

Step 6: Pass Percentage

Here you define the percentage of points the learner will need to achieve in order to pass the Question set. More about score points later in this tutorial. We'll set this to 80 for now.

Step 7: Questions

Here, we'll add the actual questions that the Question set consists of. In this tutorial, we'll add three quiz questions:

  • A Multichoice question
  • A Drag and drop question
  • A Fill in the blanks

When the Question set editor is launched, only one undefined question type is displayed below the Questions header.

Step 8: Add Multichoice question

In the Question type dropdown, select Multichoice question. This will load the Multichoice question editor. 

We will add the exact same content as in the Multichoice question tutorial. Read it if you're curious about how to create a Multichoice question. 

You should by now have something like this:

Step 9: Add Drag and drop question

Press the Add question button to add another question to the Question set.

This time, we'll choose Drag and drop question from the dropdown menu. The Drag and drop question editor will now appear.

Add the exact same content as in the Drag and drop question tutorial. Read it if you're curious about how to create a Drag and drop question. 

After adding content to the Drag and drop question you should have something like this:

Step 10: Add Fill in the blanks question

Press the Add question button to add another question to the Question set.

As our final question for this question set, we'll choose the question type Fill in the blanks from the dropdown menu. The Fill in the blanks editor will now appear.

Now we'll add the exact same content as in the Fill in the blanks tutorial. Read it if you're curious about how to create Fill in the blanks. 

After adding content to the Fill in the blanks question type, you should have something like this:

Step 11: Quiz introduction

By checking the Display introduction checkbox, the learner is shown an Introduction text and must press a Start quiz button to start solving the Question set.

Check the Display introduction checkbox. The add the following text in the Title field: Berry quiz

In the Introduction text insert this text: 

Passing this test will certify you as a berry expert.

You need 80 % correct to pass. Good luck!

Leave the Start button text as it is, or change it to your own liking.

You should now have something like this: 

Step 12: Quiz finished: Your result

Under the Quiz finished: Your result: header you have options related to how the quiz results are shown to the learner at the end of the Question set. 

You wille also find several text fields where you can customize or adapt the text being used to your own liking.

Make sure that the Display results checkbox is checked, as we want the learners to evalute their own performance. 

In the bottom of this field, you can also choose to Display video before quiz results. Here you can upload a video clip which is shown to the learner after completing the Question set, but before the results are displayed. You may choose to display one video clip if the learner passes the Question set, and another video clip if the learner fails. However, we'll skip adding video feedback in this tutorial, as this is entirely optional. 

Step 13: Finishing up

Save the node/article to view your finished Question set. 

You should now have the same result as the example on top of this page.
