There are many types of the examination questions such as multiple choice question, true or false, match the column, short answer, and essay type questions. These kind of questions are mostly used in online examinations and can the questions can be prepared before the beginning of the examination as well it can be stored.

But most importantly storage is the biggest question and preparation of the question paper requires devotion of time. To solve all your problems, test generator software was developed where one can store their questions in a question bank and it saves time as well as effort for preparation of question paper. Let’s have a look on the types of questions that are used in the examination and their modes of preparation.

Multiple Choice Question

This kind of question is composed of one question with multiple possible answer including correct answer and several other incorrect answer. Usually students select the correct answers by circling the right numbers or tick mark or even filling the associate circle on the OMR sheet for the software to make it easily readable.

For preparation of this kind of question use your own words to frame the question and each question should not be too lengthy. The question must be formulated clearly.

True or false

This kind of question is composed of a statement. And the student has to response by specifying whether the statement is correct or wrong. Unlike multiple choice question, true or false question is also used to assess the familiarity with the course and allows student to respond quickly. While evaluating this kind of statement is easy and quick to grade but while creating the question it is time consuming. This kind of question allows the students to guess which is the right answer.

Match the column

Students need to match the questions by pairing with one of the choices provided and for each set.These kind of questions are generally quick and easy to create and even evaluation, but students take more time to respond as compared to true or false and with that of multiple choice question.


Essay type question usually provide a complex reply and the answers required to be replied in a written form. The answers may vary in length from the paragraphs to as many pages. Therefore, essay questions differ from short answer question and they give an opportunity to the students to explain their understanding and creativity.

Short answer

It usually consists of questions that typically composed in brief which requires reply in written. The answers replied for short questions might vary in length either from one or two words or to a few sentences.


Paper generator software is the best software storage of various type of question which is used in the examination. The software is highly secured and there is no doubt of leakage of questions. It has the capacity to hold end number of question.
