Questions with Multiple Correct Answers
You can create a quiz question with multiple correct answers by typing multiplem:// within the 'Correct Answer' field, followed by your correct answers, separated with a colon (:).
For example: multiplem://Penguin:Ostrich
Students answering this question would be able to select either 'Penguin' or 'Ostrich' to successfully answer the question.
Questions with Multiple Weighted Answers
Weighted question types allow you to set a score for each question which is double the value you state for each of the 5 possible responses: Strongly Agree; Agree; Neutral; Disagree; and Strongly Disagree.
Type multiplem:// into the 'Correct Answer' field followed by the weighted responses in this format: Strongly Disagree|value: Disagree|value: Neutral|value: Agree|value: Strongly Agree|value (see example above).
