Add a "Select All That Apply" question type in Assessments.
There is one simple request that I have been hearing from a lot of teachers. They would like the ability to do multiple correct answers in multiple choice questions. (ex: pick the two that are the most correct, select all that apply, etc)
As districts across the nation switch to common core, we need to be able to set up our exams so that we can have multiple correct answers. In other words, we would need to be able to set up the answer key so that the correct answer is a,b, and d for example and students need to mark those three choices to be correct.
Sometimes you would like students to have the option to choose more than one answer that may apply.
Add a question type for "Check All that Apply" so that teachers can enter questions and specify multiple items that must be checked to be correct.
An excellent and rather necessary option....... very SBAC-style
Yes, the addition of different question types including a multiple select option would be fantastic!

It would be wonderful to have the multiple select option in the Haiku test. It will better prepare our students for up coming state assessments.
I agree, adding this type of question would make me go back to using Haiku for assessments. Haiku, please consider this request!
Our tech coaches have been getting the same request from teachers, as they feel this feature would be particularly useful for preparing students for end-of-year online summative tests from the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium.

Thank you for your suggestion!
We've sent this on to our internal Assess and Engage team, who have been investigating this and other improvements to our current Assessment tools. This use case is really helpful to have, and we'll be sure to update this suggestion as things progress.

It is called level of confidence. If I assign A - D as possible answers for a given question, students could apply 4 points to one answer (based on their level of confidence of which IS the correct answer), 3 and 1 to two answers, 2 and 2 to two answers, or 1 point for each A, B, C, D. Rather than all or nothing, partial credit is important especially if students are allowed to retake quizzes, tests, etc.
So for instance, I give a 4 point 'after a presentation / lecture quiz, the total points would be worth 16. Since I use a 0 - 4 point grading system, I just simply put the ?/16 into the grade book, change the total score for the quiz to 4 and Haiku grade book automatically makes the adjustment and I am finished.

Would love to know if this feature is being considered.

Is there any news on this possible development being added to the roadmap?
I agree with these comments. It would help me to have the ability to put multiple correct answers on a test, especially in science where I want to know if my students know all of the elements that make up an item.
Debbie Grieve commented
This is a highly critical development item for us. It was save hours of manual assessment and gradebook entry using third party tools.

I also find it limiting to only only allow a single multiple choice answer.
Just want to add in here that I have not used haiku to its potential, I have not done online assessments since the beginning of the year since when I was these issues were arising, I understand that it takes some time but I would like these up by summertime so that I can set up my classes for next year

Could not agree more. Add this functionality.
Agreed. We also have a short list of additional question types that we want to add including multiple fill in the blank and hot zone images.
Come on guys, this should be an easy one. Some times you just don't want all your questions of this sort to be negative, that is, for example: "Which of the following is not an example of irony in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein?"
-- I would like to be able to have a list from which students might instead: "Select from the following descriptions from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein those which show irony." This flexibility would be helpful. TMEDIAGUY
