Giving students a choice of questions to answer in a quiz

Jump to solution

Is there a way to give students a choice of questions to answer in a Quiz? For instance, if I wanted to design a Quiz with five essay questions, but wanted students to answer only three of those five questions, what would be the best way to accomplish that? Thanks!

 @lindalee ​, please read the discussion surrounding this similar recent question: Essay Question Choice

In your case, if you follow  @kona 's advice, you'd create a "text no question" type that contains the five essay choices along with clear directions to students, and would then provide only three text entry boxes beneath it in which students could compose and submit their responses. If you follow the suggestion of  @josh_emmitt ​, your Assignment Group would contain five separate quizzes, each of which presents one of the five essay questions, and you'd then set a grading rule to drop the lowest two.
