Navigation & Question Settings

Module Navigation

When navigation is enabled, your learners will be able to move back and forward in your module using 1) Swipe Gesture, 2) On-Screen Back (<) and Forward (>) buttons, or 3) Back (←) and Forward ( →) buttons on their browser. When navigation is enabled for your module, learners can also double-check their answers near the end of the module before submitting them.

To enable navigation for your module: 

  1. Go to Module Settings (dropdown menu beside project/module title).
  2. Click Question Settings
  3. Toggle ON/OFF (default) to Enable Navigation.
  4. Click Save Changes after configuration for your setting to take effect.

⚠️ Note: For navigation enabled modules, answers explanations, retries & hints, and question time limit will not be revealed or activated. This is to prevent learners from obtaining an artificially perfect score.

Shuffle Questions

When shuffle questions is enabled, all response type screens will be presented in random order to your learners. Response type screens include 1) Multiple-Choice Question screen, 2) Multiple Select Question screen, 3) Open-Ended Question screen, 4) Word Unscramble screen, and 5) Likert Scale screen. To enable shuffle questions:

  1. Go to Module Settings (dropdown menu beside project/module title).
  2. Click Question Settings
  3. Toggle ON/OFF (default) to enable or disable Shuffle Questions feature.
  4. Click Save Changes after configuration for your setting to take effect.

Question Bank

Question Banks are like a repository that store and manage all your questions, organised by category (e.g. topic, difficulty level). When creating Multiple-Choice assessments or quizzes on your ArcLab modules, these questions can be automatically pulled out from your Question Bank to be displayed to your learners – saving you a great deal of time from having to construct them from scratch! To start using the Question Bank feature: 

1. Go to Module Settings (dropdown menu beside project/module title). Then, click Question Settings.

2. Click View Sample Excel Sheet or you may access it directly here.

3. Click File Download > Microsoft Excel (.xlsx).

4. Using the template provided, enter the relevant question information into the respective columns accordingly. Keep the headers unchanged & delete the unused columns once you’re done. 

⚠️ Tip: You can categorise or label your questions with multiple tags. These tags provide the specifications on which are the type of questions that you want to display from your Question Bank. 

5. On your Editor > Module Settings > Question Settings, click Upload to upload your completed Excel spreadsheet.

6. Check and ensure that your questions, correct answer options, and tags are correct. Then, click Save Changes.

7. Add a Multiple-Choice Question screen to your module. Then, under Screen Settings, toggle Yes for the option Pull from Question Bank. 

8. Click on the Question Bank Tag(s) to specify the type of question that you want to retrieve and display from your Question Bank. For example, if the Question Bank Tags “Maths” and “Easy” are selected, any questions in your Question Bank that have both tags present will be randomly selected to be displayed for your learners. You can also configure the Time Limit and Display Percentage options for your Multiple-Choice Question accordingly. 

9. Duplicate as many Multiple-Choice Question screens as you desire and then configure Question Bank Tags for each screen accordingly. 


No. Question Bank Tags and Question Tags are two independent, different features on ArcLab. 

For images from online sources (e.g. Google Image), you can simply right-click on your desired image and select Copy image address

For images from your own computer, you can visit https://imgbb.com/ > upload your image > click on the image once upload is complete > right-click on the image and select Copy image address.

Ensure that you have uploaded your complete Question Bank template from your Editor Module Settings > Question Settings.

Under Screen Settings, ensure that the Question Bank Tags selected matches exactly the Question Bank Tags that you have for each question on your Question Bank template. Also ensure that there are sufficient questions on your Question Bank that have the selected Question Bank Tag(s).
