kuraCloud lessons are highly interactive with lots of different ways to get you thinking. If you see a Check Answer button after a question you can select this to instantly get feedback on your work. You may even get helpful hints to point you in the direction of the correct answer.
Basic text questions
The simplest style of question you'll see will be a plain Type your answer here box, where you will be asked to write an answer in your own words.
Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ)
If you encounter an MCQ, you should select the correct answer from those listed. You can only select one!
Labeling, categorizing, and drag and drop questions
Another style of question you might come across will require you to drag and drop labels to different locations (note: there may be more labels than locations, or vice versa).
In a similar fashion, you may be required to sort a list of labels in to different categories using the drag and drop method (note: not every label needs to be sorted into a category).
You'll know if you've sorted all of the statements correctly if a appears next to the category heading when you select Check Answer.
Some images will require labels to be added to blank locations. There may be more labels than locations, or more locations than labels.
You may come across a lesson that contains tables for you to fill out, like the example below.
You can enter text with the usual formatting options, and are also able to change the color of the box to red, green, yellow, or gray. You can add rows above or below, delete rows or columns, make a header row or header column and add columns left and right. You can clear the table at any stage by selecting Start over.
