2 Interactive Content Headings

CALI has two standard headings for interactive content. These headings are intended to signal to the reader (a) that they are encountering a question or set of questions; and (b) the types of questions. For consistency and predictability, similar questions share the same color text box. (Colors to be determined based on upcoming print tests.) Multiple questions of the same type will share one text box. If a heading does not include identifying information, such as the subject, the issue, or a case name, it will include a set number.

Should you find that different and/or additional headings would be more appropriate for your content, please let us know by labeling the H5P content in your book with your chosen heading.

1. Check Your Understanding: By default, all Multiple Choice and True/False questions will fall under the “Check Your Understanding” heading. Other question types that follow a basic question/answer structure would fit within the Check Your Understanding category, as well, such as Fill in the Blanks. Questions in this category typically share one color.


Check Your Understanding – Set 1

Note how the two questions above share the same text box. The assumption here is that one appeared immediately after the other in the text, and that they refer to the same material in some way, such as a case or discussion. 

Check Your Understanding – Set 2

2. Expand on Your Understanding: This heading signals to the reader something other than your standard question and usually involves a more in-depth read. While they may share the same heading, CALI may use different colors for different question types.

To date, authors have used this label for:
a. Hypotheticals
b. Socratic Scripts
c. Essays


Expand on Your Understanding – Intent Hypotheticals

Review the following hypotheticals. Turn each card to reveal the answer.

Expand on Your Understanding – Socratic Script: Walls v. Oxford Management

Question 1. What is the holding of the case?

Question 2. Why is a jury not involved in resolving the case?

Question 3. What tension in common law rules does the court identify in its reasoning? Another way of putting this question is that the court identifies a set of competing default rules; how does it frame those and how does it tailor its holding in light of them?

Question 4. What does the court mean when it states that it “will not place on landlords the burden of insuring their tenants against harm from criminal attacks”?

Question 5. What consequences might follow if courts routinely did find that landlords owed their tenants a general duty of care to prevent criminal attacks?

Note how the two examples above share a heading but not a color. This may happen when the question types are very different, as they are here, and particularly when a question type is used more than once. For instance, we would want the student to quickly recognize that they are encountering a set of hypos (as opposed to a Socratic Script) and so we would make them purple throughout the text. 

Now let’s turn to how you can provide your H5P content to CALI.
