From the Scratch Wiki:
"Scratch contains the resources available for creating a question/answer system. This system can be used for one to be 'quizzed', or to repetitively answer automated questions. This tutorial shows various methods on how to create a question system. For each method, the ask () and wait block is used to ask questions and input answers."
Use these blocks to teach students to create a quiz for many different concepts and disciplines.
