Label answers to quizzes

 Is there any way to label the possible answers to a question in  Quizzes? For instance, "a," "b," etc.  I'd like to be able to offer an option of "A" and "B" only...but can't do that if the possible answers aren't labeled.

Hi  @jmerriam ...

This is a common issue I come across when I am building quizzes for our instructors using the old/classic Quizzes interface.  My solution does not involve letter choices at all.  Instead, I do something like this:

1. What does 4 equal?

  • 2 + 2
  • 2 x 2
  • Both "2 + 2" and "2 x 2"
  • Neither "2 + 2" and "2 x 2"

Sometimes, the answers inside the quotations are longer, but that's okay.  I've not gotten any feedback from our instructors that this isn't working for I'm assuming they are figuring things out as they take quizzes/tests/exams in Canvas.

Would something like this work for your needs?
