Multiple Response question (right/wrong)

A Multiple Response question is similar to a Multiple Choice question, except that instead of being required to make one (and only one) choice, the user is allowed to make none, one, or more than one choice. It gives you more flexibility to design the marking schema around your learning outcomes.

    Ordering choices 

    Once you have created your question choices, you can specify if you want them to be presented in a particular order, or randomly shuffled. To arrange your choices in a particular order, select a choice and drag it to the desired location. 

    To shuffle choices, select your choice shuffling option from the Shuffling option drop-down menu. The following options can be selected: 

    • No shuffling means that choices will be presented in the order in which they appear. 
    • All means all choices will be shuffled. 
    • All but last choice means that all choices will be shuffled, apart from the last choice which will always be presented last. 
    • All but last two choices means that all choices will be shuffled apart from the last two choices, which will always be presented last. 

    Note that if you arrange your choices in a particular order but do not select No shuffling from the drop-down list in the toolbar, your choices will not be presented in the required order. 

    You can also specify whether the question choices are listed vertically or horizontally. To do so, select either Vertical or Horizontal from the Display drop-down menu.
