I suggest you ...

Select ALL that apply question style.

TLS needs a Select ALL that apply style that scores nil unless the learner selects ALL the correct answers.

These need to be marked strictly right or wrong. The current version give credit for the correct bits and therefore overmarkds a wrong answer

        By default of all question types within TalentLMS are marked as correct or wrong. We do not give partial credits for half-correct answers. In the past we offered half credits but we decided that the simpler solution would be easier to comprehend and more fair in most cases. Said that there is no perfect solution to that problem as it depends on a number of factors.

        It is important for student to have a testing in place, which it could help students to practice.

        I don't see how mocks can have a mark for getting a question half right for half an answer, when all applicaple to the question need to be selected. There's no working so this should be clear, either a full mark for a full and correct answer or nothing for anything else. Students won't get constructive feedback if the marks they get confuse things.

        It is important to have a testing system in place that simulates exactly or as close as to the real exam. Only that way do students have a clear idea of where they are at and what they need to focus more on before the actual day.

        Essential for this type of question, otherwise it doesn't reflect how the actual exam is marked

        A very important amendment to make the system sensible e.g.

        Which of the following are NOT football clubs:

        Liverpool
        Tony Blair
        John Major
        Manchester United
        Everest

        I agree, allowing students to gain credit/partial marks for not getting the entire question correct is not how exams work. If a student is given five options (let's say A, B, C, D & E) and is asked to select ALL that apply, if the answer is A, B & D they need to select all of them to gain the mark - not score 0.66 if they select A, B & E.

        We are seeing a number of professional awarding bodies move to online exams and this type of question is become ever more prevalent.

        For example if a question asks for which of the following are countries in the EU

        Australia
        France
        USA
        Germany

        Select all that apply

        The right answer is France and Germany and therefore should only be awarded the marks if both are selected. If one is selected no marks to be awarded. This select all that apply question style is currently used by a number of professional bodies where students only get the marks by selecting all of the correct answers inside a question if they miss 1 no marks are awarded. It's either right or wrong. Currently inside the talent LMS students get partial marks which is not replicated in real exams.

        This is a super important point so that students get the same simulation mark that they would in the exam.
