Full credit for any response/completing an assignment

I have a similar question to the previously archived Full Points for Any One of Multiple Correct Answers.

 

My faculty member has a checklist that students need to complete for an assignment. I have turned this into a quiz to make it easy for students to simply click a response to the question asked. However, in order for this to work correctly, I need any answer checked within each question to count and for the student to receive full credit for the question.

 

One option would be to have multiple correct answers for a multiple choice question, but that goes against the premise of a multiple question.

 

The other option (and one that the faculty member would like to have for other assignments), is to simply award the student full points for just completing the assignment.

 

I have holistic rubrics set up for the faulty member to be able to provide comments to the students on each of the sections of the quiz/assignment, but that is simply for comments and tracking outcomes.

 

Here is the scenario:

Quiz with 15 questions across four sections.

Option 1: Answering yes, n/a, no, not sure/unclear will get full points for the question

Option 2: Simply completing the quiz will get full 10 points for the assignment
