In this tutorial you will learn how to add a Ranking page.

Ranking pages are great for testing whether the users can link certain words or terms (left) to the correct descriptions (right). The user will have to put the answers in the correct order, depending on the question. For example, think of matching years to events.

*We recommend to use Google Chrome to ensure an optimal experience when using AppicalNow.

Note: This page is not available on smartphones. Users on a smartphone will see a Multiple Choice page instead (see step 12).

Step 1. Click on ‘Courses’ in the menu on the left. 

Step 2. Navigate to the course where you would like to add a new page. Click on the button that says ‘Editor’ the bottom left corner of the desired course. 

Step 3. Next, select the story where you want to add a new page.

Step 4. Select the chapter in the menu on the left. 

Step 6. Choose ‘Ranking’ in the menu on the left and click on the button that says ‘Add page’ in the bottom right corner. 


Step 7.
Select the desired language. 

Step 8. Give your new Ranking page a name. Click here for a guide on choosing a good name for your page.

Step 9. Pages are set to ‘live’ by default but can be set to draft. Draft pages can be very helpful when you’re working on a page while new hires are already using AppicalNow. Click on 'Live' and select 'Draft' to change te setting.

Step 10. Write the assignment in the text field underneath the title. It has to be clear what the user has to do. For example: “Match the answers on the right side with the correct rank on the left side.”

Step 11. Fill in the ranking words ( terms/vocabulary ) on the left side and the descriptions on the right side. To add more answers, simply click 'Add Answer'.

Example: 1st level on the left side, Course on the right side
                1969 on the left side, "First human on the moon" on the right side.

Step 12. Click on the white button with the smartphone to create a page that is shown to users that visit this course on their smartphones. 

Step 13. Click on 'Add Answer' and write your answer in the text field. Select the checkbox ‘correct answer’ if that answer is the correct one. It’s possible for a question to have more than one correct answer. Every answer that has the ‘correct answer’ checkbox selected will be counted as a correct answer. 

To add more answers simply click on 'Add Answer' again. The maximum amount of answers for a Multiple Choice page is 6.

The text that you type at 'Explanation' will show up after the user confirmed their answer(s). You can thank them for the feedback or his/her opinion for example.

Step 14. If a user clicks on the info button at this page they will see the text that you write in the text field underneath 'Info Button'. Use this to give the users more information on the question or the subject.

Step 15. At Page Options you are able to configure answer settings and advanced settings. If you click on ‘Answer Settings’ a drop down menu will show 4 options. The first option gives you the ability to set the importance (weight) of this question. The higher the number, the more impact this question will have on the final score of this user. 


If you select the checkbox at ‘Provide Feedback’ the user will receive feedback after this question. If not, the user will proceed to the next question without feedback.

If you select the checkbox at ‘Neutral Answer’ the user will not receive a note that the answer is correct or incorrect.They will receive a neutral version instead.

If you select the checkbox at ‘Mandatory Correct Answer’ the user can’t proceed to the the next question until this question is answered correctly.
