Setting test questions
All questions have a 'don't know' option in addition to the normal answers. With multiple choice questions, correct answers score +1, don't knows 0 and incorrect answers -1. Numeric and text input questions also have a partially correct score of +0.5.
With multi-answer questions, each correct answer selected and each incorrect answer not selected scores +1. Each correct answer not selected and each incorrect answer selected scores -1. The total score for the question is then divided by the number of options to obtain a total somewhere between -1 and +1. A don't know answer scores 0 as usual.
With a listing and ordering questions, the user starts with a score of -1 but then scores 2 divided by the number of items in the list for each correct answer, giving a maximum of +1.
The score for each question is allocated
towards the total for a particular learning goal. You can keep scores for up to 32
separate goals. Normally you will have the same number of questions for each goal.
