Radio buttons are used to allow you to select the answer that you think is correct. Only one button can be switched on. Clicking on another button in the list if you change your mind switches the previously selected button off. Q2 is an example of an MCQ where more than one of the options given is correct. Check boxes are used to allow you to select those answers that you think are correct. More than one (or all) the boxes can be checked. Clicking on a previously checked box if you change your mind will uncheck that box. Another type of MCQ is a picture question. In this instance you will be shown a picture and be asked a question that relates to it. In some cases the associated question will be a straightforward single or multiple answer question like the ones above. Once you have finished the questions, click on the 'Submit Answers for Grading' button to get your results. This activity contains 14 questions.
