When you click the More options, you get a menu that includes additional settings which are not critical to the question but allows you to fine-tune the functionality.
- Set the question to not score the answer.
- Allow or disallow the participant to check (via a button) if they've answered correct (not give the correct answer).
- Choose between scoring types:
- Exact match: the amount of points set in the correct response schema is given only if the question is answered exactly like in the schema.
- Partial match per response: when the question has multiple responses available, each response gives the amount set by the correct response schema.
- Partial match: the amount set by the correct response schema is split between the correct answers (e.g. 2 points is split between two responses so they each give 1 point).
- Disables the auto scoring of the question and forces the assessor to manually assess the question. This will also hide the scoring options regarding automatic scoring.
- Set penalty for incorrect answers. This setting is sensitive to the scoring types above.
- Set the amount of times the check answers button can be pressed.
- Set a minimum number of points to give if the question is attempted.
Edit the visual layout of the options in the question. The layout options are very distinct for each question type.
- Change the overall layout of the question options from the standard "block" layout to more point checks and with centering.
- With more than one column, choose whether the order of the questions (e.g. A, B, C, D) should be horizontal or vertical.
- Label type for each option (numbers, upper- or lowercase letters).
- Number of columns (e.g. change from a 1x4 to a 2x2 grid).
- Font size for the question options.
Add an assessment guide or a comment for authors to the question. This is an easy way to convey information to assessors and authors that is not shown to participants.
- Assessment guide: overrides the stimulus (question text) chosen at the top, the question during the assessment phase and post-assessment. This setting is mainly developed to be used as a tool for the author to inform the assessor and participant of the reasoning behind the automatic scoring. Notice: if you want the original question text to be visible, copy it into the field and write the guide below.
- Comment for authors: Adds a blue text box above the question stimulus/text. This is shown in the question editor and during assessment to the assessor.
- Both field allow maths equation rendering with MathJax or MathQuill.
Below is an example of both fields from the assessment tool (Annotate).
