Multiple choice with a single response

A multiple choice question is where a test-taker must select the correct answer from a choice of options shown in a list.

There are two types of multiple choice:

  • Single response: The test-taker is only allowed to select one correct option from the list.
  • Multi response: The test-taker can select 1+ options from the list.

This guide shows you how to create a multiple choice, single response using the single choice question type.
