Creating Multi-Select Questions (M-S)

Multi-select (M-S) questions require respondents to identify one or more correct answers in a list of possible answer choices. Multi-select questions enable you to define a grading format where more than one answer is needed to provide a correct response.


Step One: Access a Question Library, Quiz or Survey

Questions can be created in a Question Library, Quiz or Survey. For a Quiz, it is recommended to first create questions in the Question Library, then import them into the Quiz. For additional information see the following guides, then return to take the next step:

Which grading method should I choose?

Recommended: Correct Answers, Limited Selections

Points are evenly distributed across correct answers only. The number of selections allowed is limited to the number of correct answers. Learners earn partial points for each correct answer selected.

Example: If a question is worth 2 points where there are 4 answers and only 2 are correct. Students will only get 2 full points if both correct answers have been selected. (A correct answer selected = 1). (1 + 1 = 2 Points).

Since this is a limited selection option. If there are 2 correct answers, this limits the selection to 2 selectable answers only.
