How can I give full credit for two different multiple choice answers?

Jump to solution

I have a question on a quiz that is multiple choice. There are four possible answers, and two of them are both technically correct. Is there a way to accept either of these multiple choice options for full credit? I don't want to make it a multiple answer question - then students who put only one of the answers only get half credit. But if A and B are equally correct, I want to be able to award full credit for either answer.

Hi  @cmfox ‌

Thankfully this is doable.  In the options for the multiple choice question you have a vary points by answer option.  Set the points for both answers to be equal and you're on to a winner.  Unfortunately it won't show as correct for both of them so it may be best to restrict student view in the settings and allow them to see everything except for whether answers are right or wrong - just seeing the points should suffice.

Hope this helps!
