Instead of questions answered by true/false, or fill-in-the-blank, what if your application is better suited for visual recognition?
The Definable Multiple Choice Question allows a learner to choose an answer by clicking on any object placed on a page. The objects that can be used as answers include graphics, buttons, draw objects or fields. For example, many states include the shapes of traffic signs, without the text, as part of their driver licensing exam. Also, text fields can contain formulas or lists that might be too complex for the standard multiple choice question.
First, gather or create the objects that will be used as answers:
The image below shows a graphic placed on the page, in a text field, and on a button. Also note the Definable Multiple Choice question button on the page.
Create a text field on the page and type the question to be answered into the text field.
Drag the Definable Multiple Choice question object from the Questions category of the Catalog onto the page. The Properties for Definable Multiple Choice Question dialog box should open automatically. If not, or to reopen later, right-click on the Definable Multiple Choice button and open the question properties dialog from the button of the right-click menu.

For this example, the highest possible score is 2 points, and each correct answer is weighted at 50% on the Scoring tab.
To complete the page, a Score button, Score Field and Feedback Field may be added from the Scoring and Tracking section of the Catalog. Be sure the Score this question box on the Scoring tab is checked if the results are to be recorded in a log or in an LMS activity record.
Other available question options include:
When the page is complete, switch to Reader mode and verify that everything is working as expected. This illustration shows that both correct answers have been selected, and the score and delayed feedback are displayed.
