Advanced Answer Options for multiple-choice questions with multiple answers

Apr 8, 2012 12:37 AM

Is there a workaround to provide feedback for multiple-choice questions with multiple answers?


For example, I'm preparing a question with four ansers, both B and D are correct. If the users chooses only B, then the feedback will be "B is correct, but there is one more correct answer."

    The Advanced Answer option is only available for multi-choice questions where a single answer is correct, not multi-answer questions wherer two or more answers may be correct.


    If you need to construct such a question and have branching or feedback appear based on the actual answers the user selected, then you would need to construct this question on a normal Captivate slide using interactive objects, widgets, variables, advanced actions, and text captions.  The complexity of the task would depend very much on exactly what you needed to do. 


    Is what you have stated already (that the feedback caption tells them they have one of the correct answers but there is another one) the only requirement?

    Is this interaction being scored?  At what point do you want the scores to be reported to the Quiz Results?  Should they only report a score when the user gets all answers correct?

    Popping in to give you a link to a blogs post with some articles I published about creating custom questions. If you do not have to report to a LMS, that will be the way to go to have total control. Perhaps You'll find some inspiration there:

    I find the included widgets also very useful to create custom question slides. Here is another link:
