Enhance the student learning process with Fill in the Blanks

Require students to actively engage with text by analyzing and synthesizing information. Here are key development areas you can nurture with Fill in the Blanks.

Use case icon

Knowledge retention

By nature, FITB activities encourage active learning and critical thinking. When students are asked to fill in the blanks in a text or passage, they are required to recall and apply their knowledge in order to correctly complete the task which in turn, reinforces their ability to remember it by retention.

Use case icon

Lesson mastery

Unlike other objective quizzes, FITB types eliminate the possibility of students guessing for answers. This creates the need for students to improve their mastery of a lesson by identifying and focusing on the key points of any learning material.

Level of Understanding

Contrary to its objective nature, fill in the blanks can be used in subjective assessments where students are expected to showcase what they know or understand. This can be a good way to test students' understanding of the material and their ability to apply knowledge to new contexts.
