Multiple Choice Questions Are Here! [Extempore Update]

Last Updated on

As we do every year, we use the summer break to push updates to the platform. Some of these updates are major new features; but many others are small tweaks, performance and usability improvements that are reported to us during the year. That being said, we’re excited to announce the first one of the summer!

This was a big and very anticipated update, multiple choice questions! Also included in this release is the ability to change the Extempore Timers individually at the question level, not just at the assessment level.

Please note: If your students will be accessing Extempore through the mobile app, make sure they are updated before assigning this activity type.

Question Level Extempore Timers

Another highly requested feature included in this update is the ability to manually change the time to review and time to respond at the question level. Before, the Extempore Timers were only set at the assessment level. To see how you can now take advantage of this new ability, take a look at this help article!
