Creating a Multiple Choice (MC) Question

Multiple choice questions give students a list of possible answers from which they may choose only one. When you view a list of questions in your quiz, multiple choice questions are designated with “MC.”

It is strongly recommended that you create all your quiz questions from within the Question Library. This gives you the ability to reuse questions on various quizzes and to create random sections within quizzes. To utilize the Question Library:

  1. Click the Assessment tab on the course navigation bar and select Quizzes and Exams.
  2. Click the Question Library link on the Edit Quizzes and Exams screen and the Question Library page displays.
  3. Select the Multiple Choice question type from the Create New drop-down list.
  4. When the Multiple Choice Question page appears, enter the question in the Question Text box.  The entry box is a full html editor and you can view more options by clicking on the arrow symbol. Next, you will fill in the answers, select the correct answer, and save your question.Select Save to save the question and return to the main page; Save and Copy to save the question and create a new question of the same type that retains the copied properties; or, click Save and New to continue creating questions of the same type.
