Moodle 3: Activities & Resources: Quiz Question Types: OU Multiple Response


An OU Multiple Response question is a multiple-choice, multiple-response question type. The main difference from a standard Multiple Choice question type is the way the grading works. When creating a question, the teacher simply indicates which choices are correct. If there are n number of choices, the student scores 1/n for each correct choice and loses 1/n for each incorrect choice.
