More Options

Alternate answers: If alternate answers are acceptable (like synonyms, alternative spelling, or abbreviations), click the + button. By default, Alternates are awarded full credit, but each set of alternates can be valued at different point levels (Correct must be the highest point value).

Unscored/Practice usage: Removes point value for this question.

Penalty points: Rather than not receiving credit for incorrect answers, an incorrect answer will deduct points instead.

Scoring type

  • Exact match (Default): All parts of the answer must be correct to be awarded credit.
  • Partial Match Per Cell: If all answers in a cell are correct, the credit designated in the Set correct answer(s) field will be awarded. In this example with two cells (Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere), 1 point would be awarded if all answers in the cell are correct, adding up to as many as 2 total points:
  • Partial match per cell - max score: Same as Partial match per cell, only the entire point value (in this case 1 point) is divided across all answers. In this example with two cells (Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere), 0.5 points are awarded if all answers in the cell are correct, adding up to 1 total point. Note - in this example, Rounding was set to None. The default is Round down, which does not offer fractional credit):
  • Partial match per element: Each correct answer will be awarded the full credit designated in the Set correct answer(s) field. (In this example with four response options, awarding 1 point per correct answer, adding up to as many as 4 total points):
  • Partial match per element - max score: Same as Partial match per element, only the entire point value (in this case 1 point) is divided across all answers. In this example with four responses, 0.25 points is awarded for each correct answer, adding up to as much as 1 total point. Note - in this example, Rounding was set to None. The default is Round down, which does not offer fractional credit):

Response container position: Adjust layout of responses in relation to the table. The default is Bottom. Additional choices are Left, Right, or Top (shown here):
