Is there any way to select multiple correct answers for quizzes in Camtasia Studio 8?

I'm using the multiple choice question option. I'd like to have multiple correct options, so the user get's to choose all the answers that apply, rather than one.

Is this still an issue with Camtasia?  I'm making quizzes and would like to have multiple correct answers.

I would agree with Kathleen. The tutorial video illustrating 8.2 indicated only one correct choice.

Hello,
Right now, you can only select one correct answer.

This is by design and is not a bug or incorrect behavior.

Also, there is no current plan to change this. However, I will turn this post into an idea so others can comment if this is something they would like to see in the future.

Thanks for the response, Kelly.

Unfortunately, this is a serious limitation both from a e-learning perspective as well as a marketing one.  Without this feature, my team will need to use a third-party assessment tool (such as ClassMarker or SurveyGizmo).  Neither of these options is very nice as it breaks the flow of content and assessment.

Your comment here is two months old.  Has there been any change in attitude at TechSmith about extending this quiz feature?

Thanks,
Bryan

This would have been a great feature. I've just spent two days working on a project, only to find the mcq does not allow more than one option. I'm now going to have to redo this all in Articulate Storyline which is a real shame. I bet it would be so simple to implement. I don't understand why it isn't as this is a real necessity for e-learning.

To stimulate Learners' thinking, the formulation of multiple choice with a few different scenarios is essential.  
Who exactly was it who advised you to have only 1 answer as the response?  How many hours of instructional design did that adviser have??

This may not work in many situations, but certainly will in others. You can add a question type 'Short Answer', and then add 'Fill In the Blank', with multiple acceptable answers below. Then, in your question, include each of the possible answers. 

So a question could read: "Do you prefer apple, banana,cherry, or all? "  Then list each in the acceptable answers in the fill in the blank sections. I think spelling is checked closely, so you may want to allow for some misspellings. Not sure on capitalization.

I need this option too. Furthermore the title "multiple-choice" indicates, that you have the chance to choose more than one answer. Your solution with only one correct answer is "single-choice"!

I need this functionality for a compliance training quizz.  Any update on whether this functionality is planned?

I would also like to see a true multiple-choice question option. Limiting to one choice makes it easier to guess the right answer and is not a true measure of whether or not they gained the knowledge.

I too need the multiple choice answer availability. Take for instance this compliance question - Under the ADA, the definition of disability is: (check those that apply). The answers are 
□    A physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities of an individual

□    An impairment that is recorded as such

□    A condition regarded by others as an impairment

□    An impairment brought on by genetics, injury, or disease

A condition a medical professional declares a disability

I would have to combine the first three into one giant answer with only the single correct answer option.  It is vital in learning design that we have the ability to have different question types to keep learners engaged and to be able to ask the right kinds of questions that show us if they know/learned anything. Please change this feature!

as a crude workaround, have you tried structuring your quiz as a series of questions that ask about 1 item in a multiple choice series?  that way, you could capture multiple selections; like ...

definition of disability ... one choice for answer ... true/false

I think it should really be called "single choice". It's a little bit strange if you call it "multiple choice" but only allows for single choice...

Well, I also struggled with the fact that there is only 1 correct answer possible. If for instance I would ask the attendee to vote my tutorial and let them chose between with "did meet my expectations", "did not meet my expectations" or worse "please send me a refund" all the answers of my attendee should be accepted as correct. Not only the first. So multiple correct answers would be a very nice plus for the Quiz-feature! Furthermore it would be nice to have the option to hide the word "correct" in the result. Because "correct" as feedback to the given answer not always suits the kind of question. Hope to see this features added to a future update. Highly appreciated, thanks!

Multiple choice commonly means multiple choices to choose from with one correct answer. If you want a multiple choice question with more than one correct answer I think that would require a new name.

I would very much like to see a multiple select quiz question option.

Hi, a multi-select answer is really part of a best practice approach to making asynchronous multiple choice assessments. The fact that you don't have it or don't have plans to make it really does show the limitations of your ambition and best practice capabilities. It's quite short-sighted. I imagine it would not terribly difficult to hire a developer to work this out.

REALLY, that is amazing that TechSmith still doesn't have this type of quiz question?

Oh yes, I am just trying Camtasia (because I have to prepare for asynchronous teaching, guess why) and noticed that the "multiple-choice" quizz is unfortunately just a single-choice quizz. I think that this is rather worthless!
