In the multiple choice problem, every problem has several settings, or
attributes, that appear when you click Settings in the component editor.
1 Display Name: is the name of your problem. The name appears as a
heading over the problem in the LMS. It also appears in the course
accordion ribbon at the top of the page.
2 Maximum Attempts: indicates the number of times a student can try
to answer the problem. By default, a student has an unlimited number
of attempts.
3 Problem Weight: Determines the maximum number of points the
problem is worth. You can change it by changing the Problem Weight
value. It is also possible to create a problem that has more than one
answer space–for example, you may create a problem that has two
questions, one with a multiple choice answer and one with a numerical
value answer. Each answer space is worth one point. Thus this
problem would be worth two points by default.
4 Randomization: defines how often inputs are randomized when a
student loads the problem. This setting only applies to problems that
can have randomly generated numeric values.
