Quizzes, Surveys, and Forms can be created using two types of Paging. Manual Paging and Auto Paging.
The below Page will appear, we will now look into each option of the QSM Options Tab.
General Options Tab
Based on the Type of Quiz/Form you have chosen the option will be selected by default. You too can change the Type according to the Quiz. The Quiz Type has 3 options Quiz, Survey, and Simple Form. Based on what Quiz Type you select the Options to configure the Quiz will also change.
Quiz and Survey Master allows for three different grading systems for your Quiz.
The correct/incorrect system allows you to set up your quiz to show percentages based on the overall score. You can select which answers are correct and you can show different results pages based on the percentage score the user earned from the quiz. You can also send different emails based on the percentage score if emails are enabled.
The points system allows you to assign points to the answers which are added together at the end of the quiz. You can show different results pages based on the total points the user earned from the quiz. You can also send different emails based on the total points if emails are enabled.
In this Option, you can use both of the Grading Systems i.e. Correct/Incorrect and Points Based.
Correct Answer Logic
If in a quiz user can submit more than one answer then you can use this option to set the correct answer logic to evaluate the same. The correct answer logic helps you achieve this.
- All correct answers – All answers submitted by the user need to be correct. The user needs to select all the correct answers, if he misses selecting any of the correct answers, the answer will be marked as incorrect.
- Any correct answer – Some of the answers selected by the user are to be marked as correct. This means, the user can select any of the correct answers and the answer will be marked as correct.
This option will work on the Multiple Response, Horizontal Multiple Response & Fill in the Blanks Question Types.
All Correct Answers
|User Ans. Selection||Correct 1||Correct 2||Incorrect 1||Incorrect 2||Result|
Any Correct Answers
|User Ans. Selection||Correct 1||Correct 2||Incorrect 1||Incorrect 2||Result|
Note: If you have added multiple answers and the user entered an incorrect answer the final output will be considered incorrect.
