Option Response problems can be used as matching problems.
For example, you might want to ask the student to match musical compositions
with their composers. You could create an Option Response problem with 4
Concept Groups, and place the following four foil groups each in its own
You could then add the following options to the option list:
- Claire de Lune, Ballade (Debussy)
- The Pastoral Symphony, The Ninth Symphony (Beethoven)
- Sleeping Beauty Suite, The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies (Tchaikovsky)
- Slavonic Dances, New World Symphony (Dvorak)
The same answers can be used more than once, or not at all, as you see fit.
It is conventional to place such a warning in the Text Block describing
the problem to the students.
