  • New Quizzes: Fill in the Blank Question Type Allows Rich Content Editor: In Quizzes, this feature allows instructors to add content as part of the question stem and make portions of the content fillable in the student response. This change allows instructors to create fill-in-the-blank questions with rich content such as scientific or mathematical formulas or a table. Additionally, instructors can format fill-in-the-blank questions to appear on separate, distinct lines.
