Points by Choice for Multiple Response?

Why is the option to assign points by choice only available on single-response questions? Is there a workaround to do it for multiple-response questions?

Scenario: I have a question with 9 choices and four correct answers, the question score is 20 points - 5 per correct response. But... if someone gets three of the four right, why can't they get credit for their correct responses (15 points)?

Hi Niki,

Within Articulate tools the questions are all full-credit, meaning the user has to select all the right answers to proceed and be scored correctly. We've had a few folks ask for partial credit as a feature to add, so I'll add you to that list! 

If we have more details to share, we'll pop back in here to do so on this feature!

Thanks for the response, Ashley. It just seems to me that in multiple response questions, partial credit should be an option. If there are four correct responses to a question, and a user gets 3 out of 4, it seems unfair to give them zero points.

I'm not surprised that other people have ask for that feature; hopefully it makes it into your development queue!

Hi all,

I have to agree with Niki,

I am just starting to get to know Articulate but I have already encountered this limitation on my 4th day using the software.

To be honest I am very surprised this feature (points by choice in multiple response questions) is not a given option in Articulate. Many MC exams at universities work with this approach and I wanted to use it in my company to test training knowledge of employees.

Is there any development plan on this?

Best regards,

Michael

My client has same request.

Any workaround available yet?
