Text Blocks

Text Blocks are used to create Inline Interactions. A text block is basically a paragraph, and forms a framework into which one of the two available text-based inline interactions (Inline Choice, Text Entry) is then inserted.

Text Blocks are represented by the icon Block in the Interactions Library on the left, under Inline Interactions.

1. Using Text Blocks with Inline interactions

After you have created a new Item, drag a Text Block Block from the Inline Interactions Library below Common Interactions on the left, onto the blank item and drop it onto the Canvas.

This creates a field (containing a sample text) in which a text may be entered from a favorite source (you can copy and paste text from any text editor, or website, for instance), or typed in.

To enter your text, click inside the text field.

Note: See the section on Interaction Authoring Tools for details on text editing options such as using italics or bold text in your item, and inserting features such as shared stimuli or media, tables or formulae.

For more detail on how to create the two inline interactions which use Text Blocks, see the sections on Inline Choice Interaction and Text Entry Interaction.
