This article explains how to set up the MCQ element.
You can configure each MCQ individually or define global settings for all MCQs.
Global MCQ configuration is in the Module settings menu. Here you will find a list of all MCQ settings, including points, icons and sounds.
MCQs are set to Use global settings by default. If all or some MCQs must function or appear differently from each other, select the toggle to reveal the settings that will be applied to the individual MCQ.
Assign a Quiz ID for in-course scoring. The ID then must be entered into the Points Update element to be added to the score calculation. It allows you to choose which MCQs are a part of the Points Update. For example, when a user completes a second section of the course, you might want to show how well they answered questions in this section only, excluding questions from the first section.
The ID doesn't have to be unique for each MCQ. For example, all first-section MCQs can be assigned section1 Quiz ID.
Order of items
Choose if the MCQ options should appear in the prescribed or random order.
Maximum number of attempts (1-100)
If the user answers MCQ incorrectly, additional attempts will allow them to retry.
One click response
When enabled, the user's answer will be recorded right after they select an option without having to Submit. This feature works with MCQs that have one correct option only.
When the user answers MCQ, choose which options' icons to show, or hide them completely.
Option width (1-100%)
By default, options appear in 100% width of the MCQ element, stacked vertically. If you have three options and reduce the option width to 33%, the options will show next to each other horizontally.
