by Jon Bolton - Wednesday, April 17, 2019, 8:13 PM
 

A multiple-choice question (MCQ) is composed of two parts: a stem that identifies the question or problem, and a set of alternatives or possible answers that contain a key that is the best answer to the question, and a number of distractors that are plausible but incorrect answers to the question.

It is one of the core question types in Moodle.
