Hi, Chad Bryant (and here's a slightly belated) Welcome to the Canvas Community! Yes, it is possible to assign different point values to responses in Quizzes.Next: How do I create a Multiple Choice question in New Quizzes?
Implied in that answer is that if you want this, you will need to switch to Quizzes.Next. It is not available in the legacy version of Quizzes and Canvas has stopped developing that to focus on Quizzes.Next. So if you are using Quizzes, the answer is no.
To continue a thread from earlier today ...
This is another one of those typical Canvas Guide answers. "If [you are using Quizzes.Next] then [yes, you can do this]." But that doesn't answer the question when you are not using Quizzes.Next.
In a conditional statement, when the premise is false, the statement is true regardless of whether the conclusion is true. That means that Canvas isn't being dishonest when they do this, but they are not being complete, either. The problem is that many people aren't looking for the statement that Canvas gives, they're looking for the inverse or converse of it and that behavior is undocumented and untested by Canvas.
The truthfulness of the statement and contrapositive are equivalent, as are the truthfulness of the inverse and converse. However, the statement and it's inverse don't always have the same truthfulness.
In this case all four statements are true.
That is not always valid, though. There have been several circumstances in the last couple of days where the Guides have addressed the statement, but the inverse / converse are not true. Take for instance the Studio (Arc) list of users for the insights from earlier today: Insights of an Studio (ARC) video to show ONLY the viewers of that video
The guide says: "The Insights tab shows a graph of all users who have viewed the media at least once".
I don't have a good solution -- I'm kind of like Canvas when I speak. I say what is true but people want to infer something that I didn't say. For example, I say one thing but my wife hears something else. I argue that's not what I said, but she doesn't remember details like I do, only the general concept [which she happened to get wrong because that's not what I said].
Sometimes I know the answer ... I can give both answers. This is especially true with Quizzes.Next, which Canvas is trying to push, but many of us feel just hasn't reached parity yet.
Thank you for adding that clarification, James. This particular aspect of the Multiple Choice question is exclusively available in Quizzes.Next, and we are hopeful that more Canvas users will start trying it out, or will contact their local admins to get guidance on how to test it in a sandbox account.
Chad, please know that once you are able to enable Quizzes.Next in a course, it will not automatically transform your existing quizzes to incorporate the new features. They are two separate tools which can be used simultaneously in the same course.
Thank you! I believe James Jones is correct in that we do not have quizzes.next. When putting in my answers it does not give me the options to add the point value to each. Thanks for your help!
