Multiple choice knowledge checks in Honeycomb

Author-it Honeycomb User Guide

Honeycomb courses support two types of multiple choice questions; those that have a single correct answer and those that have multiple correct answers. Both types are created with the same general steps, and can include text and images.

  • For questions with more than one correct answer, use the Multiple Choice Multiple Selection knowledge check. To reinforce that the question has multiple answers, the slide uses selection squares.
  • For questions with only one correct answer, use the Multiple Choice Single Selection knowledge check. To reinforce that the question has a single answer, the slide uses selection circles.

To create multiple choice knowledge checks:

  1. Create a topic based on the Knowledge Check Multiple Choice Single Selection template or Knowledge Check Multiple Choice Multiple Selection template.
  2. Place the slide topic at Level 1 in the book contents, or inside an assessment group.
  3. Add the question, using any style except Lists and special Honeycomb-related styles.
  4. Add several answers, each in a separate paragraph:

  5. Apply the style Answer Correct to indicate the correct answers (one answer only for a Multiple Choice Single Selection question and several for a Multiple Choice Multiple Selection).
  6. Apply the style Answer Incorrect to indicate the incorrect answers.

    Answer Correct shows text in green with a tick mark, and Answer Incorrect shows text in red.

    Author-it randomizes the order of the answers during the publishing process. For this reason, you should not use answers such as "All of the above" and "None of the above"; instead, use answers such as "All answers are correct" and "No answers are correct".
