Question Tags

What are Question Tags?

Question Tags are essentially labels or classifications that you assign to the questions on your ArcLab modules. It is a powerful tool in your arsenal that enables you to quickly obtain a detailed profiling of your learners’ performance – illustrated by a radar chart in your Learner Analytics dashboard. Let’s take a look at an example here below:

As depicted in the picture above, the radar chart on the Learner Analytics dashboard visually displays your learners’ average performance (%) across several unique dimensions. Each dimension is represented by the question tags that you assigned to the quiz/assessment questions in your module. 

The closer a plot on the axis is to the outermost grid of your chart, the better your learners are performing on that particular dimension. For example, the radar chart above tells us that our learners are performing better on the dimensions of “Body language” and “Order taking” (i.e. body language and order taking type questions) relative to “Greeting” and “Upselling“. Using this visual information, you can quickly identify your learners’ strengths and weaknesses – and then go on to plan and design the suitable remedial training where necessary. 

How to Add/Remove Question Tags?

Question Tags can be added for the following types of quiz/assessment screens: 1) Multiple-Choice Question screen, 2) Multiple Select Question screen, 3) Open-Ended Question screen (with Auto-Grading enabled), and 4) Word Unscramble screen. For 1) Multiple-Choice Question screen, and 2) Multiple Select Question screen, ensure that the Question Type is toggled to Quiz before proceeding.

1. Scroll down to the Question Tag setting under the screen settings panel of your quiz/assessment screen. 

2. Enter the question tag for the particular quiz/assessment question, then click Add. The question tag entered should contain only letters and numbers with no special characters or punctuations.

3. Add more question tags (up to 6 per module) and/or assign questions to its relevant tag by clicking on the respective option button. You can also remove question tags by clicking on the thrash bin icon. 


To add question tags to your Open-Ended Question screen, you need to first enable auto-grading. The Question Tag setting can be found all the way below the auto-grading settings for your Open-Ended question screen.

You can only assign 1 question tag to each question. 

Each module can support up to 6 question tags. It is also recommended that a minimum of 3 question tags be added to shape the radar chart and to enable easier visualisation.
