Choose Question

The updated Question block allows you to add Multiple Choice, Multiple Select, and Short Answer questions.

Multiple Choice: This allows you to create a question that requires a user to select 1 correct answer

Multiple Select: This allows you to create a question that requires a user to select multiple correct answers

Short Answer: This allows you to create a prompt/question that requires a user to write a short answer

Note: For cases in which a Short Answer question has an exact answer, such as "What company does the Rockstar Learning Platform belong to," you can setup the correct answer that a user must enter; and even make it case sensitive (so the answer must have proper capitalization).

The acceptable answers for this question might be "ELB Learning," "elblearning," or "ELB." If a user entered one of those variations, they would answer correctly.
