Create a "Select Anatomy in 3D" quiz question

In BioDigital's Quiz Builder, the Select Anatomy in 3D question type is the most unique of all of our quiz question types, as it requires the learner to select specific structures in the 3D model. You can even increase the difficulty of these questions by requiring the learner to rotate, zoom, or even hide structures to find the structure they're looking for.


Select Anatomy in 3D questions can be used to gauge a learner’s familiarity with the placement and positioning of anatomical structures, in addition to several other learning objectives:

  • Identify anatomical structures
  • Identify the anatomical structures affected by a disease
  • Describe the relationships between multiple anatomical structures
  • Recall the function(s) of anatomical structures


Create a "Select Anatomy in 3D" question

  1. Open your model or tour in the Quiz Builder.
  2. In the Quiz panel on the right side of your screen, click Add Question.
  3. In the Question field, enter the question you would like to ask. (You can enter something as simple as “Please select the following structures in the model” or customize it to your liking.)
  4. Click on the structure or structures in the 3D model that you would like to quiz your learners on. The learner will be expected to select all of these structures in the model by name.
  5. (Optional) By default, the names of the structures you have selected will be listed below the question text you entered in step 6. If you do not want the structure names listed below your question text (for example, if you already named the structure in your question text), uncheck the box next to Show answer list in the question text.
  6. In the Answer Explanation field, you can explain to the learner why the correct answer is in fact correct in case they get it wrong.
