It is important to provide enough questions that LeaP can draw upon for each learning objective. LeaP offers 3 questions to the learner each time they are tested on a particular learning objective, so if there aren't enough questions, the learner sees the same question repeatedly. Generally, having 10-15 questions for each learning objective provides a good selection to assess the learning objective.
What type of questions are best suited for LeaP?
Questions near the bottom of Bloom's Taxonomy (knowledge, comprehension) are easier for LeaP to analyze. Because they typically share the same keywords as the learning objectives, the semantic matching algorithm can select appropriate questions for the given learning path.
Questions near the top of Bloom's Taxonomy (evaluation, synthesis, analysis) are more challenging for LeaP to use because the appropriate answers may be too subjective for semantic analysis.
LeaP works best with multiple-choice and true/false questions. It is not possible to use multi-select questions with LeaP.
Note: LeaP does not support randomizing answer choices.
What is relevance weighting on questions?
All questions with a higher relevance than the slider threshold can randomly appear on LeaP tests. A question's relevance rating, combined with its relevance to a specific piece of content (which is not displayed in the LeaP interface) determines if the question randomly appears in the Practice section. If you set the question slider too high, the Practice question section may be empty since the combined relevance of the questions to the learning objective and the content may not exceed the threshold value.
What file formats can I use to upload questions?
You can upload questions in two ways:
- Upload questions into LeaP using a QTI package (for example, exported from Brightspace or Respondus) or using a CSV.
- Pull questions from the Quizzes tool or the Question Library directly into LeaP.
Note: D2L strongly recommends that all questions appear natively in the Question Library of a LeaP course and are drawn from that source instead of a CSV import.
My images are too wide for the Practice Question sidebar. What can I do?
Reduce the width of each image to display at 280 pixels so that the full image is visible in the Practice interface. For images where students need a larger view, add HTML code to open the image full size in a new browser tab.
When does LeaP show question feedback?
LeaP shows feedback immediately when a learner submits a question response. The same feedback appears whether the response is correct or incorrect.
I want to modify a question in my LeaP path
For questions that you have added to LeaP directly from the Quizzes tool or Question Library, you can make changes using the LeaP wizard. Alternatively, you can edit the question in the Quiz interface; however, you'll need to create a new LeaP path to force LeaP to pick up the modification.
D2L does not recommend that you modify the question in the CVS or QTI file and re-upload into LeaP. If you do, you must do one of the following extra steps:
- In the LeaP Wizard Content Alignment tab, set the relevance of the old question to 0%.
- In the LeaP Wizard Questions tab, mark the old question as Hidden.
I want to remove a question from my LeaP path
Do one of the following:
- In the LeaP Wizard Content Alignment tab, set the relevance of the question you want to remove to 0%.
- In the LeaP Wizard Questions tab, mark the removed question as Hidden.
If I send the results of a Leap path quiz to Grades, which attempt does it record?
LeaP records the learner's most recent attempt in the Grade book and permits the learner an unlimited number of attempts.
My learning path for a module appears to be pulling questions from a different module
It is not possible for you to organize questions for modules within LeaP. All questions go into a single LeaP question pool for the course. LeaP then runs algorithms against the question pool and aligns the questions to the learning objectives specified for the path. In this way, algorithms may pull questions from a different module if the questions are a good match for the learning objectives you have specified.
You can review the alignments for each path in the Content Alignment tab and make manual adjustments.
