e-asTTle Onscreen Question Types

Print Friendly

There are nine types of questions in e-asTTle. Practice Tests for each subject are available which include most of the different types of questions that can appear in e-asTTle tests. It may be a good idea for students to familiarise themselves with the different types of questions by first sitting a Practice Test.


1. Multiple Choice

Students need to select the radio-button response panel which is believed to be correct. Note that students can select anywhere within the response panel. This will change the response panel from grey to blue and fill in the empty radiobutton with a back radiobutton. To change the selection students can either:

  • Select the response panel again– this will remove that response i.e. the response panel will change back to grey and the radiobutton will be empty or
  • Select another response panel – this will change the existing response to the latest selected
