Multiple Answer Questions

I have been searching for a way to do multiple answer questions without the students receiving partial credit.  I have not found a way, so I began researching it and found chats where Canvas indicated they are working on this option.  However, these comments are from 2015.  In speaking with someone from Canvas in a Chat, it was indicated this is still not a feature.  In Nursing (and I am sure other professions), the licensure exam does not give partial credit.  It is vital for us as educators to prepare our students for the types of questions they will see on the licensure exams.  In the chat, it was indicated that the only way to do all or nothing credit on multiple answers is to grade that question individually for each student.  That really defeats the purpose and is not practical with the number of students enrolled in courses.

 

Is this something Canvas is working on?  Is there an update of the status of this since what I found in questions from 2015?

 

Thank you
