I'm jumping into this discussion with what I think is a similar inquiry. I've experimented with various question types (including non-core types) and am having difficulty achieving the following:
I want to ask a question that has multiple correct answers (e.g. Select the four key terms related to Global Relations.) that are to be selected from a list that contains multiple distractor (incorrect) options.
I understand (from unsuccessful experimentation) that I cannot use drag and drop options as they have a 1 to 1 relationship. (i.e. each item must be dragged to a specific location).
I also understand that I cannot use the multiple choice option with "Multiple answers allowed" because - I want students to get partial credit (from the point total for each item) based upon the correct selections and no credit for incorrect selections. I also do not want them to be able to select more than the specified number of options and still receive credit. The multiple choice question type, as far as I can see, does not allow for what I want to accomplish.
If I have 10 options, from which 4 are correct, in a multiple choice question with "Multiple answers allowed", the student can simply select all options and get the question correct. This behavior makes the "Multiple answers allowed" function seem meaningless...I know I can assign negative values but in the above scenario that does not calculate the point score for the item as desired either...
I thought I'd found a solution in the "OU Multiple Response Question" type...however, that one does not work as I had hoped either. In the same scenario (as explained above), if a student selects 6 items, for example, from my list of ten with four of them being correct and two, of course, being incorrect, they get a partial score...which, incidentally, I can't seem to figure out the calculation for....I think it is simply subtracting the fractional point score for each correct answer from the total possible...thus:
If I have 4 correct answers with a point total of 4 and a student selects 6 options, 4 being correct and 2 being incorrect, the student gets 2 points....when I want them to get a zero because they selected more than they were supposed to.
Maybe there is an obvious question type option that I am overlooking. Also, I wonder if the original inquiry here is not similar to what I have outlined above? Doesn't the ordering type require options to be in specific positions? Tracey has two options that are worth 17%. Can those two options be in either of the first two positions or do they have to be in specific locations?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide and my apologies for the confusing nature of the inquiry.
P.S. Sorry...after posting all of this...I'm starting to realize (hopefully correctly) that the matching type might be an option...but the one to one relationship still exists...🤔
