  • Admin Notes:

The Multiple-Select question type takes the number of correct responses possible and divides the correctness of the question evenly across each possible correct response. Each incorrect response subtracts 1/N of the correctness where N is the number of possible correct responses. Please note the score for a question will never be negative. 

  • (# of Selected Correct Responses / N) - (# of Selected Incorrect Responses / N) * Weight of Questions

Additionally, it is important to note that Multiple-Select is a different question type than Multiple-select-AR.
