New Top Hat Question Builder

First Posted:
Last Updated:

Our partners at Top Hat have recently introduced a new “quality of life” change to its Question Builder feature. Its designed to bring greater ease and flexibility to the question generating and editing process. It is currently available to all Top Hat faculty in Pages.

Some of the key difference include:

  • Users are no longer locked into the existing layout of a question and can mix and match elements of a question freely on the page, similar to Top Hat Pages.
  • Users can now apply formatting to all elements of a question including hints and explanations.
  • The way the question looks in the editor is exactly how it will look for students, reducing guesswork.
  • Popular question types like True/False and Likert scale are available as templates to help speed things up, with more templates rolling out over time.

Instructors who wish to learn more about Top Hat can contact CIRT (cirtlab@unf.edu), or they can react out to Top Hat Support by email (support@tophat.com) or through the in-app support button.
