There are three settings to select.

Question Type

  • Radio: A standard multiple choice question that allows for one correct answer
  • Checkboxes: A multiple choice question that allows multiple answers to be correct (students check the box for each correct answer)
  • Free Response: Questions with textboxes that require an algebraic or numeric answer
  • Comment: A survey-type question that accepts text responses (not recommended for Problems)

Display Feedback

  • Immediately: Students will see whether they got the answer correct immediately after they answer
  • After the deadline: Feedback will be delayed until after the Problems are due

Participation Credit

This defines how much credit to give to the student for just trying, regardless of the correctness of the student's answer. Entering 100% means that full credit will be given for entering any answer. A participation credit of 0% means that the student will only get full credit if their answer is correct.
