5. Click on a cell to see a menu with options for that cell. For e.g, you can use the rich editor on the stimulus, question prompts and answer choices with the 'Edit' menu option.

6. Set the correct answer by checking the 'Answer' checkbox in the menu. The selected choice will turn green.

7. Once you have confirmed that everything looks as it should, click the Save Question button. You will see a prompt indicating that your questions have been saved.

8. You can use the Preview button on the right to view the question when saved. 

9. Your saved questions will be available under Questions - My Questions.
