Match interactions provide a range of answers, which have to be assigned to other content or a specific position by the participant. In addition to the classic match interaction, the task types matrix interaction and order interaction will also be available.

The following scoring methods are available for match interactions:

  • Automatic assessment:
    • All answers must be correct
      Only completely correct solutions are assessed. The participant receives the maximum points.
    • Points per answer
      All answers correctly assigned by the participant are assessed. The participant receives partial points for each correct answer.

All answers must be correct

The scoring method  All answers must be correct follows the right/wrong principle. If the participant solves the entire task correctly, they will be awarded the maximum number of points. If the task is not solved correctly, they will receive 0 points.

A match interaction is considered completely correct, if the participant has correctly assigned all answers.

Example "match interaction" – scoring method "all answers must be correct"

This example shows how to configure the assessment of a match interaction. The participant will only receive points, if they solve the entire task correctly. If their answer contains an error, the participant will not receive any points (0 points). The scoring method  All answers must be correct is preconfigured as the standard assessment. All necessary settings can be configured by the author in the tab Question and Answer .

First, set the points for the match interaction. If the participant solves the entire task correctly, they will be awarded all the points you have configured.

In the example, 10 points are awarded.

Define the assignment and desitnation elements that will be available. The correct assignment is displayed behind the elements.

In the example, the following assignments are considered correct:

  • "Weißeritz" – "Dresden"
  • "Mulde" – "Leipzig"
  • "Saale" – "Halle"
  • "Spree" – "Bautzen"

The task preview allows you to test the assessment.

In the example, the participant receives the specified 10 points only if all answers have been correctly assigned. If only some answers are assigned correctly, the participant will not receive any points at all.

Assessment: Points per answer

With the scoring method  Points per answer , partial points can be awarded for each correct answer.

Define the partial points per answer in the section Points per answer , which opens upon selecting the option Points per answer . The system automatically suggests a point allocation on the basis of the previously defined maximum total score of the task. You can customise this allocation and adapt it to your needs.

Example "match interaction" – scoring method "points per answer"

This example shows how to configure the assessment of a match interaction. The participant will receive partial points for each correct assignment. Incorrect answers will have no points deducted.

 

First, select the scoring method Points per answer from the tab Scoring . The section Points per answer will open automatically. Here you can customise the assessment.

According to the maximum points configured, the system will suggest an assessment for the individual answers.

In the example, the maximum score was set to 10 points. The system distributes these points automatically to all correct assignments. Since there are four correct assignments, 2.5 points will be awarded for each correct answer.

The task preview allows you to test the assessment.

In the example, the participant receives the specified 10 points only if all answers have been correctly assigned. If only some answers are assigned correctly, the participant will receive partial points.

If the participant assigns only two answers correctly, they will receive 5 out of 10 possible points. The participant receives partial points for each correct answer, e.g. "Weißeritz" – "Dresden" (+2.5 points) and "Mulde" – "Leipzig" (+2.5 points). Incorrect or missing assignments will not be assessed.
