Workarounds for creating multiple-answer Qs on self-scoring quizzes

What workarounds are folks finding when creating questions on self-scoring quizzes (i.e., no instructor is going to fudge around with scores in Grades)?

I wanted an item with 4 responses in which two are correct. The item is worth 2 points (1 point for each correct answer). As I understand it new-quizzes doesn't do partial credit. And then there are these scenarios: students just select all 4 responses and get full points, or they get no points even if they select 1 correct answer.

Context: This assessment is of low-stakes content in a community college, baseline-skills course. It'll be largely an elearning experience: no dedicated instructor, but a potentially a facilitator at different assessment points.I'm looking at Canvas' functionality as well as Camtasia's for delivery.

saurilio, partial scoring for multiple answer questions in New Quizzes is coming in the next release: Canvas Release Notes (2020-04-18). Will that help?
