Multiple choice questions

A multiple choice question is probably the most flexible and widely used question format in online learning. To create the question all you have to do is enter the question stem and the alternative answers and then provide feedback for each of the answers. Two question formats are provided, allowing you to choose whether the options are presented in a single column or two columns.

First enter your own question stem and options. Delete rows if necessary. If you need more than six options, copy and paste row six, but make sure in the HTML that any numbers specific to the option are incremented as well.

Then, in the HTML, type in your feedback in the JavaScript section labelled 'feedback text'. You also need to specify the number of options. If you add lines for further options, be careful to follow the syntax exactly.
