According to Google, if they find content that violates these guidelines, they will respond appropriately, which may include taking manual action and not showing your content in the Google education Q&A rich result.”

Structured data from Education Q&A can help students easily find your flashcard pages. You need to add quiz-structured data to your flashcard pages in order to accomplish this.
