Can I set up multiple choice questions so that they accept more than one correct answer?

Yes! Students will get full credit for the question if they pick one of the answer choices that you designate as correct.

Click Properties.

Click Properties.

From the multiple choice Question Editor, click Properties.

 

Tick Allow Multiple Correct Answers and click Close.

Tick Allow Multiple Correct Answers and click Close.

From the General tab, tick Allow multiple correct answers and click Close to exit the Question Properties window.

 

Add your question and click Save.

Add your question and click Save.

Write your question stem, enter your answer choices, and tick the choices that should be counted as correct. (In this example, blue and red could both be correct, for the sky might be blue during the day but red at sunset.) When you're done, click Save.

Please note that the question will look like a normal multiple choice question to students. They will be presented radio buttons, not check boxes, and will be expected to answer the question by selecting one radio button, as they do with other multiple choice questions.
