Scoring an Exam question with multiple correct answers

If you have selected several answers as correct answers in a multiple-choice question, you will find an extra setting for this at the bottom of that page of your question:

The options are:

Require all correct answers checked for full point

Only when your participant checks all the right answers, he/she will get the full amount of points for this question. With any mistake, there will be no points awarded to them.

Give points per correct answer (points per correct answer = question points / total correct answers)

If your question would have 4 correct answers, and 4 points to score, your participant would get 1 point for every correct answer that he/she selects.

Give points per correct answer and a penalty per wrong answer

The score for a question with this setting will be calculated through this formula:

score = (max_score / correct_answer_count) * (correct_answers_checked - wrong_answers_checked - correct_answers_not_checked)

German question type: Give points for a correct answer checked, penalty for correct unchecked and a penalty for incorrect answer checked

The score for a question will be calculated through this formula:

score = (max_score / answer_count) * (correct_answers_checked + wrong_answers_not_checked - wrong_answers_checked - correct_answers_not_checked)
