The Multiple Response question is also a popular question type in creating tests. So, in this article, you will learn how to create this question type in ActivePresenter 9. 

A Multiple Response question has a quite same format with a Multiple Choice one. Both of them are widely used to test learners’ understanding of a certain field or check their ability to recall information. However, a Multiple Response question accepts more than one correct answer.

In ActivePresenter 9, you can see Multiple Response is at the third question type in the Questions tab. 

Questions tab > Multiple Response

This tutorial goes through 6 main stages to create this question type: 

Let’s start right now!

Insert a Multiple Response Question

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

  • Open the Questions tab > Multiple Response .
  • Open the Home tab > Interactions > Multiple Response . 

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

As you can see, the 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 this question type like others in ActivePresenter 9.

In detail, you can:

  • Change the container layout: Access the Properties pane > Size & Properties > Container Layout > select one layout mode: 
    • None: This option allows you to resize and reposition answer options freely. 
    • Flex: This layout arranges answer options horizontally or vertically in a flex container.
    • Grid: This option is selected by default. It arranges answer options in the grid pattern.  
Change question layout

After that, customize its properties if necessary. 

  • Resize the question title (1) and the answer area (2): Drag the resizing handles on the Canvas, or select them > Properties pane > Size & Properties > Transform > adjust the Width and Height values. 
Resize the answer area
  • Insert more answer options: Select the answer area (2) and click the plus button:
Add more answer labels
  • Delete answer options: Select one or more answer options and press DELETE on your keyboard, or right-click them > Delete.
  • Change shape of answer options: Select them > Format tab > Change Shape > choose your desired shape: 
Format answer labels

For example, change them from rectangle to hexagon: 

Customize answer labels
  • Hide/Show toggle button: Click the Show Toggle Button option to hide/show them.
  • Edit toggle buttons: Each answer option comes with a checkbox. Freely format them by selecting a built-in style in the Checkbox Styles gallery or editing it using Checkbox Tools.
  • Change answer options’ style: Quickly format answer options by selecting a built-in style in Quick Style gallery or customize using Style Tools
  • Add/Edit text of answer options: Click the default text and enter your own text. Then, you can customize their font, font size, etc. in the Home tab or inline text editor.  

Tip: If you want to save these settings and reuse later, right-click the answer area > select Set as Default Multiple Response Question. Thanks to that, the customized question will be the default one each time you add a new Multiple Response question slide.

Add Events and Actions

Similar to other question types, Multiple Response also has events – actions added by default. Particularly, it has 4 default events for the Graded mode (On Correct, On Incorrect, On Incomplete, and On Timeout) and 3 for the Survey mode (On Complete, On Incomplete, and On Timeout).
