Sections are one of the question types in Microsoft Forms, only there is no question. It is unquestionably one of the best new features in Forms, and is it destined to (very soon) get a whole lot more useful. Welcome to Day 67 of 365 Ideas for Office 365.
Start by adding a section. In the description box, paste in text that students will use to answer the questions in that section.
Then add the questions related to that text.
When it is time to move on to another reading selection, simply create another section and paste that reading into the description field.
Add the questions related to that passage.
Repeat as needed!
The reading passage stays visible as long as the student is in that section. They may need to scroll up, if it is a long reading passage or there are many questions, but it will remain on that page– no need for a back button or multiple windows.
You can also add an image to a section just as you can to a question. (Limit one image per section or question.)
So instead of placing a picture in two different sections like I did below, if you want both images to be available when answering the questions, place the first image in the section, and the second image can be attached to question #1.
Stay tuned over the next week or so as this feature is about to get a major upgrade to help you make your Microsoft Forms Quizzes much more accessible overall, especially when used in this way with Sections for longer reading passages.
