Have you ever needed to check learners’ knowledge on the steps involved in a procedure, a process or the order of events in a timeline? If so, the best solution is to use sequence questions. Just set some events or statements and ask quiz takers to put them in the correct order by dragging and dropping. These questions are also suitable for historical and chronological topics.
In this article, we will show you how to create a quiz with sequence questions using iSpring QuizMaker.

There are default feedback settings in the Feedback and Branching field, but you can customize them, if necessary. Learners will appreciate it if you leave detailed feedback for each answer choice and this will make a quiz more powerful.
