Creating multiple choice questions

Multiple choice (M/C) questions present a statement or question with a list of possible answers, in which respondents must choose the best possible answer. Multiple choice questions differ from multi-select questions in that only one answer can be selected for each multiple choice question.

If you create a multiple choice question that has more than one possible solution, answers can be weighted according to the correctness of each possible answer.

Example If two answer choices out of five options are accepted as correct, both can be weighted 100% and the other three options can be weighted at 0%. If all five answer choices are accepted as correct but some are more correct than others, each can be weighted in ascending order with the most correct answers weighted more than the least correct answers.

Create a multiple choice question

  1. Enter a Title. Enter a Points value. Select a difficulty level in the Difficulty drop-down list.
  2. Enter your M/C question in the Question Text field.
  3. Click Add a File to upload an image to accompany your question. You can enter a description of the image in the Description field.

Creating multi-select questions

Multi-select (M-S) questions require respondents to identify one or more correct answers in a list of possible answers. Unlike multiple choice (MC) questions, multi-select questions enable you to choose a grading format and allow users to select more than one answer.

Create a multi-select question

  1. Enter a Title. Enter a Points value. Select a difficulty level in the Difficulty drop-down list.
  2. Enter your M-S question in the Question Text field.
  3. Click Add a File to upload an image to accompany your question. You can enter a description of the image in the Description field.
  4. Select an enumeration style from the Enumeration drop-down list.
  5. Select a display Style.
  6. Choose a Grading format:
    • All or nothing Users receive full points for the question if they select all of the correct answers and none of the incorrect answers. Users receive zero points if they miss any correct answers or select any incorrect answers.
    • Right minus wrongUsers receive points equal to the number of right answers they choose minus the number of incorrect answers they choose. To determine how much each answer is worth, the system takes the total number of points assigned to the question and divides it by the total number of answer choices.

      Example If a question is worth 10 points and has 5 answer choices, each correct answer is worth 2 points, and each incorrect answer is worth 2 points (10/5 = 2). If a user gives 3 correct answers and 2 incorrect answers, 2 is the total number of points received for the question [(3-2)*2 = 2].

      Note Users can receive a minimum of zero on a question: they cannot receive a negative mark.

    • Correct answersUsers receive points for each correct answer they select and for each incorrect answer they leave blank. Incorrect answers selected and correct answers left blank are ignored.

      Example Consider a question with a total of six potential answers, two answers being correct (in this case, choices a) and b) are the correct choices). The total points available for this question is 4.

Creating multi-short answer choice questions

Multi-short answer (MSA) questions require respondents to answer a multi-solution question and input their answers into individual input boxes. The answer provided by a respondent in each Input Box is checked against each possible answer stored in the Answer fields.

Example The question "Name 3 state capitals" will display three input boxes to users. Each answer users submit will be checked against 51 possible correct answers stored in the answer fields.

Multi-short answer questions differ from short answer (SA) questions in that the multi-short answer question enables you to create multiple answer boxes which all relate to one answer set; short answer questions also support multiple answer boxes, but each requires a distinct set of possible answers. The short answer question type is ideal if you need to create a multi-part question that cannot share the same answer pool.

Create a multi-short answer question

  1. Enter a Title. Enter a Points value. Select a difficulty level in the Difficulty drop-down list.
  2. Enter your MSA question in the Question Text field.
  3. Click Add a File to upload an image to accompany your question. You can enter a description of the image in the Description field.

  5. Click Add Answer to create additional solutions. To reduce the number of possible solutions for an answer, click the corresponding Remove Entry icon.
  6. For each possible solution, enter an Answer and set a weight in the Weight (%) field.

    Note An MSA question's maximum points value is reflected by a 100% weight. As a best practice, we recommend that each possible answer's weight calculation equals 100% divided by the number of answers required by the question.

  7. Select an Evaluation method:
    • Case Insensitive Auto-grading searches for a matching character pattern in the answer text with or without letter case correctness.
    • Case Sensitive Auto-grading searches for a matching character pattern in the answer text that must have letter case correctness.
    • Regular Expression Auto-grading uses meta-characters to search for one or more matching strings in the answer text's character pattern. What you set as meta-character parameters helps determine letter case sensitivity. See Cobra Learning - Understanding regular expressions for more information.

  7. For each possible solution of a Blank field, enter an Answer and set a weight in the Weight (%) field. You can set different weightings if some solutions are more correct than others.

    Note An FIB question's maximum points value is reflected by a 100% weight. As a best practice, the combined weight of your answers should equal 100%. If your FIB question has multiple blank fields and each blank field has several possible answers, we recommend the combined weight of each blank field's most correct answer equals 100%.

  8. Select an Evaluation field for each possible answer:
    • Case Insensitive Auto-grading searches for a matching character pattern in the answer text with or without letter case correctness.
    • Case Sensitive Auto-grading searches for a matching character pattern in the answer text that must have letter case correctness.
    • Regular Expression Auto-grading uses meta-characters to search for one or more matching strings in the answer text's character pattern. What you set as meta-character parameters helps determine letter case sensitivity. See Cobra Learning - Understanding regular expressions for more information.

  3. Click Add a File to upload an image to accompany your question. You can enter a description of the image in the Description field.
  4. Choose a Grading format:
    • Equally weighted The total points value is divided equally among all possible correct matches. Users receive equally weighted points for each correct answer.
    • All or nothing Users receive the total points value for correctly matching every answer or else they receive none at all.
    • Right minus wrong Users receive points equal to the number of right answers they choose minus the number of incorrect answers they choose. To determine how much each answer is worth, the system takes the total number of points assigned to the question and divides it by the total number of answer choices.

      Example If a question is worth 10 points and has 5 answer choices, each correct answer is worth 2 points, and each incorrect answer is worth 2 points (10/5 = 2). If a user gives 3 correct answers and 2 incorrect answers, 2 is the total number of points received for the question [(3-2)*2 = 2].

      Note Users can receive a minimum of zero on a question: they cannot receive a negative mark.

  5. Click Add Choice to create more answer choices. Enter an answer choice in each choice Value field.
  6. Click Add Match to create more matches. Enter a match choice in each match Value field.

Creating arithmetic questions

Arithmetic questions enable you to assess users' knowledge and comprehension of mathematics and number theory. You can ensure each respondent receives a unique question by including set variables that randomly generate numbers within the problem.

Note As a best practice, we recommend that you create long answer (LA) question types for arithmetic problems that require users to demonstrate their calculations and show their work.

Automatic decimal rounding rule: Round to Half Even

Learning Environment automatically applies the Round to Half Even rounding rule when assessing answers that contain decimal places that end with "5". Currently, there are no options to change rounding rules. Applying the Round to Half Even rule, answers with decimal places that end with "5" will round down instead of round up.

Example One: 3.41 * 25 = 85.25
If you create an arithmetic question and set the Answer Precision to 1, the correct answer using Round to Half Even is 85.2.

Example Two: -3.41* 25 = -85.25
If you create an arithmetic question and set the Answer Precision to 1, the correct answer using Round to Half Even is -85.2.

Create an arithmetic question

  1. Enter a Title.
  2. Enter a Points value.
  3. Select a difficulty level in the Difficulty drop-down list.
  4. Enter your arithmetic question in the Question Text field. Enclose variables with curly braces to generate random numbers.

    ExampleIf you set variables x, y, and z with a Min 1 to Max 5 number range in 1-step increments, the question “You have {x} green marbles, {y} red marbles, and {z} blue marbles. How many marbles do you have in total?” will randomly generate a rational number (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) for {x}, {y}, and {z}.

  5. Click Add a File to upload an image to accompany your question. You can enter a description of the image in the Description field.
  6. Enter the solution's Formula and enclose all variables in curly braces.
