How to create a Multiple-Choice Question:

Editing/Deleting Choices

To edit a Choice, you need to click the pen button on the right side of the same line

To delete a Choice, you need to click the trash bin button on the right side of the same line

Sorting Choices

The choices are sorted from top to bottom -as they appear on your screen- by default.

You can change the order of a choice by clicking on the up and down arrows next to choices.

Shuffling Choices:

If you tick the Shuffle choices button, the the order of the choices will be randomized for every applicant.

But you can fix the position of a choice if you want to even when you are using the shuffling option.

For instance, the choices such as "All of the Above" and/or "None of the Above" can be fixed to the last places.

Percent Value

If you plan to use Scoring in a Question, you need to edit the Percent Values of each choice.

A choice can have maximum +100 (correct) and minimum -100 (incorrect) as Percent Values.

In the Questions, in which you allowed multiple selection of choices, the final percent value is calculated this way:

  • All the values of the choices that applicant has chosen is added together,
  • If the final number is smaller than -100 (like -150) then it will round it back to -100,
  • If the final number is bigger than +100 (like +200) then it will round it back to +100 and then these rounded Percent Value is used in Scoring.
  • But if the final number is 0, then the Scoring will be 0.

In the examples below, you can see how the Percent Value is set for each specific case:

  1. Only 1 correct choice (which of these numbers is a single number?)
  2. When there are multiple correct choices
    1. and only 1 choice can be selected (select a single number from the choices below)
    2. and only some of the choices can be selected (select at least 2 single numbers from the choices below)
    3. and all the choices can be selected (which of these numbers are single numbers?)
    4. and all the choices can be selected while all choices are correct (select all the single numbers from the choices below)
  3. When incorrect choices decrease the Percent Value from correct ones.

Min/Max Selection

Min. Selection and Max. Selection fields determine how many choices that the Applicants must select at least and at most.

For instance, for a question with 5 choices:

  • If the Min. Selection is 2 then the Applicant must choose at least 2 choices.
  • If the Max. Selection is 4 then the Applicant can choose at most 4 choices.

If a Question is added to an Exam as non-required then the applicant can leave the Question empty.

If a Question is added to an Exam as required then the applicant must adhere to the Min. Selection's value.
