I haven't found how to add wildcards to JCloze fill-in-the-gaps exercises and I would like to know if it is possible.
This is what I want to do: I want students to retype sentences putting an adverb of frequency into the correct place. For example:
I listen to the radio in my car. (usually)
Here students would have to retype the sentence including the word "usually"
What is important to me is that they type the pronoun, the adverb of frequency, and the verb in the correct order; so as long as they type "I usually listen..." the sentence would be correct. I would not mind if they typed "I usually listen to the rdio in my car." or "I usually listen to the radio in my car (with no period)" or "I usually listen to theradio in my car."
I know I can type alternate answers in JCloze but it would be too many alternate after "I usually listen...". I also know I can provide the rest of the sentence after the subject, adverb of frequency, and verb (___ ____ ____ to the radio in my car.) but I want my students to type English words as much as possible.
I work with teenagers so I try not to be so picky with them in respect of spaces and punctuation in this case because what I want to assess is word order with adverbs of frequency.
I know you can do this with Moodle's Quiz Short answer questions by typing "*" as the wildcard to match any series of characters so basically I want to be able to do the same with JCloze.
I hope I made myself clear.
