< All Topics

In response to a question (that may include an image) the respondent chooses from multiple answers. There are two types of multiple choice questions – single answer and multiple answer.

Setting up multiple choice questions

  1. In the Question Bank, select the desired question category, then click Create a new question… and choose Multiple choice. The Adding a question screen will open.
  2. Give the question a descriptive name – this makes it easy to identify it in the question bank. The question name is not visible to students.
  3. Enter a passage of text into the Question text field. Images, audio, and video can also be inserted into this field using the HTML editor toolbar.
  4. Set the Default question grade by entering a numerical value (i.e. the maximum number of marks for this question).
  5. Choose whether students can only select one answer or multiple answers
  6. Choose whether to shuffle the answer options
  7. Write the first answer in the Choice 1 text field.  This will be one of the possible answers that students can select.  In addition, select a grade percentage for this answer, 100% to mark it as the correct answer.  Selecting values less than 100% will assign partial credit. Fill in the rest of the response choices in the rest of the form. Any unused areas will be ignored. Note: At least one of the choices needs to be marked as 100%.
  8. Click Save changes to add the question to the category.
