Pick Many -- multiple correct responses

I'm sorry if this is a stupid question!

I wanted to do a Pick Many where three out of five answers are correct.

However, I would like for learners to get a 'correct' response even if they choose just one of the right answers. 

Is this possible? Right now I can't get it to work... learners have to select all three, or they get an incorrect result.

Hi Andy,

Using the built in pick many question you would need to select all the correct answers. What you'll want to do is set up two off stage buttons for correct/incorrect and make those the elements which determine your quiz element and you could use a Pick one question type. You'll then set up the objects on your slide that the user is able to select and set a trigger to change the state of "correct" to "selected" when the user clicks object A OR object B. The Or condition is the crucial element there. 

This would allow you to have the behavior you're looking for where the user can choose all the correct options or only one and still be scored correctly.

Hi Andy,

Put this together as a quick example for you. I only have 3 choices, but two are correct. I've set this up in the way that Ashley has described.

When you look at the trigger panel, be sure to notice that the Submit Interaction trigger has to be the last one in the list.

Please shout out with any questions.

Hi, I get the gist of it with the 2 "off-stage" buttons' states being changed. The piece that is missing for me still is what exactly is telling the results slide (and when and where) that the changed states of these two buttons will give the user different scores? Button 1's selected state means Correct and user gets 1 point.  Button 2's selected state means Incorrect and user gets no point. 

I'm using a multiple-choice question, where the instructor wants to give students 1 point for picking whichever of the 3 choices available because they are all correct.  Thank you!!!

I've included all the questions in the file attached, but the only "problematic" question I need help with is Q6. Any of the 3 choices should count as "correct" and should give the student 1 point in their final results. Just to clarify, the last slide with the EXIT sign on it is the Results slide. We don't want to display the points to the students so I had removed all the objects on the default Results slide and inserted my own. However, we DO want detailed tracking of how students answered each question and we DO want that data sent to our LRS (we use Learning Locker). Initially I just didn't select a correct answer in the Form view, but this seemed to have lead to students receiving a partial grade in Canvas (since we are using Quiz Results to track completion. Is it possible to use the multiple-choice question format, and somehow make all the answers correct and credit students the same way whichever answer they picked?

I have followed this thread and am having trouble understanding how I can accomplish my idea. Forgive if this has been answered as maybe I am not understanding. I am creating content that is surveying in what areas students would like to enhance their skills, ie. professionally, technically, socially, etc. 

I have listed various skills underneath the main categorically of skill development. What I want to do is have the students choose the skill applicable to them, such as "select all that apply". Some will only choose certain skills. All of them can be correct, but I want to grade only the ones they choose without them having to select ALL the correct answers. Is this possible? Is it also possible to see which students selected which skills to develop as this is used for academic advising as well?

Hi Mark!

Thanks for attaching your file!

For the Area of Further Growth Scene, it would be helpful to add a button to bring the user back to the first slide where you ask "In what areas do you desire further growth?". This would make sure users don't need to click every checkbox in order to return to the main slide. 

In regards to tracking the progress, you'll want to add a result slide to track the information. Don't hesitate to use a blank result slide to track that information!

Hello Lauren,

Perhaps I wasn't clear in my intent.

I want to collect the responses they chose, not a graded percentage.

For example, If they choose three of the 10 skills, I want to see the three that they chose, not that they get 100% for choosing three.

Is this a functionality that is offered? I can't really wrap my head around it quite yet.
