The difference between multiple choice and multiple response is:

Multiple choice - Choose ONE answer.

Multiple response - Choose Multiple answers.

I suppose you could have a multiple response question with an answer consisting of only one choice, however, it has the possibility to allow for multiple-simultaneous answer selections to be the correct answer, if you so choose.

 

I do not know how to switch types, but i would like to.

Hi Services SMPCA and welcome to E-Learning Heroes :)

Thanks for reaching out. 

It looks like the users here were wanting to swap a question type once it was built. You mention a layout, so I wanted to verify what you were trying to do. Do you just mean a specific slide/question as was mentioned above or did you build a master slide for questions that you wish to apply? I just wanted to make sure I understood your question fully.

It's been our experience to keep things simple. We had encountered this frequently with our SMEs wanting to flip from multiple response to multiple choice questions. Over the years, we learned that multiple choice questions and feedback for every single answer as to why the choice is correct was most effective in elearning modules. We want to create short, simple, meaningful learning to make things stick. If you have too many busy questions, it almost becomes a distraction and noise. It makes sense to have this option in Articulate to flex rather than having to recreate the quiz. Hope that the developer will use this as an opportunity.

I too just ran into this annoyance with Storyline 3 (latest release). I was hoping there would be a way to easily change a multiple choice question into a True/False. 

I am really disappointed that Storyline doesn't allow what should be a trivial change. Yes, trivial in the sense that I could do this with other authoring tools. 

After 3 or more years of authors asking, I suspect that this functionality will never exist. :(

It would be a great feature, especially since you can save so much time reusing existing quizzes and editing them quickly and easily.

Just so I get this right: I can create a new question slide and copy-paste all the content into an existing quiz slide and that will work? That would be an acceptable workaround for me. In an existing quiz (esp. one with complex navigation like a Jeopardy or board game with dice) it would be a nightmare to adjust all navigation triggers.
