New Worksheet Widgets and Features

LearningBranch Worksheets now support a new checkbox widget along with an updated fill-in-the-blank widget. We've also changed the behaviour of auto-scored items. The system will now show the student the correct answer after the 3rd attempt.

Fill-in-the-Blank (FITB) Widget

  • We've updated the FITB widget to now accept multiple correct answers. To indicate to the system alternate correct answers simply insert a horizontal line "|" between possible correct answers:

Example: The underline space will accept either blue, red or yellow as correct.

I like the colour blue | red | yellow for my bike!
