Adding Checkbox Questions

A Checkbox Question is answered by checking a box or leaving it blank.

  • Checkbox questions can be scored and assigned to types (for Type and Multi-type assessments).


To add a checkbox question to your assessment, start by entering the Assessment Generator editor.

First, select the “Edit” link in the menu underneath your assessment.

Then click on the “Questions” tab at the top of the page.
