Quizzes - Fill in the Blanks : FITBsFun Trivia : Quizzes : General : Quiz Creation Guidelines : Fill in the Blanks : FITBs
|From the webmaster: 'Games that are made entirely or mostly of fill in the blank questions will not be accepted. Fill in the blank questions should be used rarely, if at all. They have been included because there are some circumstances where a fill in the blank format allows a quiz creator freedom to do some neat stuff.' |
FITBs are to be used rarely : As there are no prizes in here for posting an impossible quiz, FITBs are to be used rarely. Multiple choice questions with 4 'good' alternatives are not easy to draft, nor are they easy to answer: even 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' is multiple choice. The FITB feature has NOT been installed for the purpose of making quizzes easier or harder.
One Unambiguous Answer : When used, an FITB must have just one unambiguous answer. If there are spelling variations, or multiple answers, then that question must be multiple choice.
Word Limit : Please note that these vary between categories.
Person's Name : Where the answer is a person's name, then his or her surname must be given as an alternate answer, and the computer generated hint changed from "Two Words" to "Two words, or just surname" ... for some questions you may feel the first name should be the alternate answer, in which case the hint should be changed to "Two words, or just first name".
Punctuation : No punctuation of any description is allowed for an FITB question e.g. quotation marks, apostrophes, commas, full stops, dashes, colons etc.
Computer Generated Hints : If at all possible, please do not remove the Word Count hint generated by the Quizzyland computer. You may, however, add to the hint.
Case Sensitive : As Quizzyland is not case sensitive, there is no need to add in alternate uncapitalised answers e.g. Einstein, einstein, EINSTEIN ... the first answer will suffice.
Finally, please note that, if an editor is of the opinion that your quiz has too many FITBs, it'll be returned.
