Add/Modify Question Multiple Answer

 

Overview

After selecting the Multiple Answer question type on the Test Canvas the Add/Modify Multiple Answer Question page appears. Multiple answer questions allow users to choose more than one answer. Partial credit is not given for partially correct answers, but Instructors may manually change the number of points a Student receives on the Grade Assessment page.

 

Note: Survey questions cannot be assigned a point value, keywords or to a category. Surveys are not graded; therefore answers are not correct or incorrect.
