The current 16 types of questions available on Blackboard Learn tests fail to address the increasing instructors' assessment needs in the classroom.

I suggest that in the next edition of Blackboard Learn, the following question types be introduced:

"Multiple Jumbled Sentence" - This question type would be useful to quickly and efficiently combinations of possible answers.

Example: "We [reject / fail to reject] the null hypothesis. We [have / do not have] enough evidence to conclude that the mean has [changed / increased / decreased]."

"Multiple Calculated Numeric" - This question type would be useful to ask the student to enter the coefficients to an equation.

Example: Y = [3.45] + [7.23] X1 + [-0.45] X2

"Mixed Calculated Numeric/Jumbled Sentence" - This question type would be useful in composite questions where the student is asked to enter both a numerical value, and a conclusion related to it.

Example: "The interpretation of the slope is that for each unit [increase / decrease] of the [explanatory / response] variable, the [response / explanatory] variable changes by [3.45] [feet / yards / inches]."

Thank you,

Good suggestions. I have professors (Calculus) that request multiple calculated questions similar to this.

They would also suggest modifying the existing Calculated Numeric to include the Answer Range +/- to include Percentage or Numeric, instead of just numeric
