The FlexiQuiz multiple choice (check box) question type allows test-takers to select one or more answers from a list of options. Students choose the correct answers by checking the square boxes next to each relevant answer option.
Multiple choice, multi-response is great when there is more than one correct answer. You can tell students how many rights answers to find or make it more challenging by letting them work it out.
This image shows an example multiple choice (check box) question with the correct options ticked by the test-taker.
Important! If you want to allow test-takers only to select one answer option, you need to use the single choice question type.
This guide shows you how to create a multiple-choice (multiple responses) question with the appropriate scoring option.
There are three scoring options for multiple-choice questions. This quiz will be auto-scored and graded based on how you customize the scoring.
i. All or nothing.
Students will get the points when they correctly identify all the correct responses and don't check the box for a wrong option.
Here's an example of a MCQ question set up with all or nothing scoring. The correct box has a tick next to the right answer options: A and C. Students need to select all the correct options to earn 2 points.
Top tip! By using this scoring method, it prevents students from earning points if they select all answer options.
ii. Set option points - per response.
Students are awarded points for each correct option they select.
This option works well when you want to award students for each part of the answer that is correctly selected. However, students will not be penalized if they choose the wrong option.
iii. Set option points - plus and minus.
Students are awarded points for choosing the correct answer option and deducted points if they select the wrong choice.
This image shows a multiple-choice question with scoring using set option points. Students get one point for the right answer and minus one point for selecting the wrong opinion.
Your question is now added to your quiz. You can edit the question at any time. However, we don't recommend that you amend the question when people are taking the quiz.
The FlexiQuiz system will automatically score submitted quizzes and the results are available on the Analyze screen.
