September 20, 2016 Sofia Morales

All question types may be created one of two ways, either within a Course, or when building an Assessment. Since the creation process is the same for both, we'll show the process once a Course has been selected.

If there is more than one correct answer, commonly referred to as a Multiple Answer Question, the following option will appear:
