The multiple-choice question feature has gone through a recent update that will make grading an easier experience for your team. In short, all formats will now be auto-graded and will save your team loads of grading time! To take a deeper look into these changes, keep scrolling to read over our guide that illustrates in which ways multiple-choice questions can be used.
The single-answer format is the ability to list more than one answer choice, with only one being the correct answer.
By default, multiple-choice questions are set to have one correct answer (single-answer format). So that our system can grade these questions for you, start off by inputting all answer choices you'd like to be listed. Once added, apply point values ranging between 0-10 to these answer choices. Correct answers should be weighted at the maximum of 10, to receive the full credit.
- As shown below, you can apply all 10 points to the correct answer, so that candidates are either given a score of 10 (correct answer) or 0 (incorrect answer).
- If other options are acceptable but should be weighted differently, you can apply the appropriate point value for those options as well.
The multi-answer format is the ability to list more than one answer choice, in which all answers should be chosen as correct.
Turning the toggle on (toggle turns blue), will enable the ability to add multiple answers that are correct. Select the correct combination of answers by clicking the corresponding checkboxes.
Candidates will have to select all correct answers to get the full point value of 10 for the question.
However, if you'd like to give candidates partial credit for choosing at least one or more correct answers (without choosing an incorrect answer), you can do so by clicking the "Enable custom scoring" toggle to add point values. Once point values are given, the AI will then calculate their score based on the formula below:
If one correct answer is chosen, the AI will grade using the following formula:
(SUM of points for selection options / SUM of all points) * 10
Example: If Candidate answered 5 points from a total of 10 (5+5) points, the score is calculated as 5/10 *10 = 5.
NOTE: If a candidate chooses one incorrect answer, they will automatically be given a score of 0.
