Similar to Multiple Choice questions, Multiple Response questions are widely used to test learners understanding about a certain field or to check their ability to recall information.

Multiple Response questions’ format is much like Multiple Choice’s. In detail, this question type also includes two parts: a stem that identifies the question or problem, and a list of possible answer options. However, with Multiple Response questions, there is more than one correct answer option on the list.

In ActivePresenter 8, Multiple Response is the third question type that you can see in the Questions tab:

This tutorial will show you how to create a Multiple Response question through 6 stages: 

Let’s start right now!

Insert a Multiple Response Question

To insert a Multiple Response question, do either of the following:

  • In the Questions tab > Multiple Response Multiple Response Question Icon
  • In the Home tab > Interactions > Multiple Response Multiple Response Question Icon 

Then, you will see a new question slide inserted into your project as in the below image:

Multiple Response Question Slide

As you can see, a Multiple Response question slide has three parts:

  • (1) the top text box to add the question title;
  • (2) the answer area with four default answer options;
  • (3) and the Submit button.

Customize a Multiple Response Question

You can customize a Multiple Response question in the same way you do with other question types in ActivePresenter.

In detail, you can:

  • Change the container layout: Access the Properties pane > Size & Properties tab > Container Layout to change the question layout. In this section, ActivePresenter 8 offers you three options: None, Flex, or Grid. Select the layout mode that you want. Then, you can customize its properties.

  • Delete answer options: Select one or more answer options and press DELETE on your keyboard. Alternatively, right-click one answer option and select Delete.

  • Edit/ Add text to answer options: You’re free to add or edit the text. To do that, click the default text, then enter your own text. 

Tip: After customizing the question, right-click the answer area and select Set as Default Multiple Response Question if you want to reuse it. By doing this way, the next time when you insert a new Multiple Response question, this default question will appear.

  • (5) track learners results;
  • (6) mix up answer options when the question is presented to learners;
  • (7) set points for correct answers;
  • (8) set the maximum attempts that learners can interact with the question;
  • (9) set a time limit which only allows learners to respond to the question in the given period of time.

Add Events and Actions

ActivePresenter offers default events and actions for Multiple Response questions. Generally, a Multiple Response question has four default events for the Graded mode (On Correct, On Incorrect, On Incomplete, and On Timeout) and three for the Survey mode (On Complete, On Incomplete, and On Timeout). 

If you’ve selected the Graded mode, here what you’ll see:

The Events - Actions Section for MR Questions

You can remove, change, or make events and actions for Multiple Response questions more advanced as you wish. To do that, first, select the answer area. Then, access the Properties pane > Interactivity tab > Events – Actions

See Work with Events – Actions to learn more.

Customize Feedback Layers

ActivePresenter automatically adds default feedback layers for Multiple Response questions. These default feedback layers can be Correct Feedback, Incorrect Feedback, Try Again Feedback, Incomplete Feedback, and Timeout Feedback (for the Graded mode) or Complete Feedback, Incomplete Feedback, and Timeout Feedback (for the Survey mode). Bear in mind that you can delete, change, or add more if necessary.
