Creating a Fraction Model Question
To create an interactive response question, begin by either creating a new test in Aware or navigating to an existing test. TEA suggests a fraction model for use in math assessments, but the fraction model is available for any assessment.
Note: Creating an interactive response question eliminates the possibility of printing the test. A reminder message will appear when an interactive response question is added to an assessment. Eduphoria recommends having two separate tests: an online version created purposefully with interactive questions and a paper-based version for standard testing.
Select Interactive Item Types from the options.
Select Fraction Model from the available question types.
Enter the question text. Select Continue when complete.
- Choose the shape, total number of parts, and number of shaded parts. Select Create when complete.
Step 1: Select Interactive Item Types from the options.
Step 2: Select Fraction Model from the available question types.
Step 3: Enter the question text. Select Continue when complete.
Step 4: Choose the shape, total number of parts, and number of shaded parts. Select Create when complete.
Improper fractions may be created using the fraction model; an additional shape will be automatically generated when the number of shaded parts is larger than the total number of parts.
Students will see the fraction model question during testing. The fraction model is dynamic and will automatically respond to student selections in the drop-down menus.
Note: Multiple correct answers are not auto-scored.
If the correct answer provided by the test author provided is 4/8, students can create a fraction model shape with 8 parts and shade 4 parts. To enable equivalent answers, the test author must turn on the button labeled Equivalent answers are also correct under the Settings for Fraction Model. If the equivalent answer button is selected, students can input an equivalent fraction and will receive credit.
The question type is available as a column for data views, located in the Responses folder.
This column will show the question type and in which question number the type is located.
Interactive questions will be indicated in the data analysis next to the scores for each of those questions. The examples below show questions with three interactions. Teachers may view the exact question in the enter answers screen and modify student answers if needed.
Note: For district and campus level tests, the Questions teachers can answer and score option must be set to All Questions for editing privileges.
