When creating an assessment, you can create a Multiple Answer question in New Quizzes. Multiple Answer questions are formatted like Multiple Choice assessment questions, but there are multiple correct answers.

Students must get all answers correct to receive full credit for a Multiple Answer question. Partial credit is not awarded if any incorrect choices were selected or correct answers were not selected.

Add Question Title and Stem

Add Question Title and Stem

In the Question Title field [1], add a question title. Question titles are optional and are not visible to students.
