Allow Differing Option Count

To mandate that every item should use the same number of Answer Options, deselect the Yes check box, then specify the number of Options that each item must have.
To allow items to have differing numbers of Answer Options, select the Yes check box.

This setting has no affect on Matching type items and is always considered as true for such item types.

Info

This setting is not selected by default, with 4 Answer Options set per item. There is no limit to the number of Answer Options that can be set for an item. The numeric value must be an integer.

Note
titleHow can I make the number of Answer Options for Items stay at something other than 4?

The text box to specify the number of Answer Options grays out when the Yes check box is selected. The number entered into this box, before it is grayed out by selecting this setting, is the default number of Answer Options that appear when a Writer authors an item. The number in the text box (thus the default number of Answer Options) can be modified by momentarily deselecting the Yes check box to make the text box editable, modifying the integer value in the text box, then selecting the Yes check box again, and clicking Update.

The Writer can change the number of Answer Options while authoring the item by clicking the  Add Distractors icon to add an Answer Option, and use the  Remove Distractors icon to remove the corresponding Answer Option.

Default option labelsThis setting allows you to specify whether the default Answer Option Labels are alphabetic or numeric via the radio button selection.
Select Alphabetic (A, B, C) for alphabetic or Numeric (1, 2, 3) for numeric Answer Option Labels default.

When Numeric (1, 2, 3) is selected, a message box appears for Drag and Drop and Point and Click type items as shown below:

Restrict users to only write assigned questions

Select this setting if you do not want to allow Writers to author items except according to their individual work assignments. This means that if there is no work assignment for the Writer to write items, then the Write Question link on the Project Writing Summary page is not active and the Writer is not able to author any item as shown below.

Deselecting the Yes check box displays a Write Question link on the Project Writing Summary page for Writers so they can write an item assigned to any area of the blueprint even if they do not have any Write Question assignments.

This setting is not selected by default.

Note

This setting has no affect if the Require writer to classify Questions to level setting on the Questions tab of the project's configuration is not selected.

Questions must have references

Select the Yes check box to mandate that every item must have at least one reference assigned. This setting is selected by default.

Info

If this is selected as Yes, then either Allow users to add Book references, Allow users to add URL references, Allow users to add Journal references, or Allow users to add Equation references must be selected.

Require writer to classify Questions to levelChoose Yes if the writer is required to classify the item to a blueprint area.

Choosing Yes on this setting also displays an Unclassified assignment in the assignment table for the user so they can write items outside of their blueprint assignment. It shows all the blueprints available for the project.

Select a blueprint level for which you want to classify an item, and click Update.

Go to Develop Question → Write Item → Write Question page → Blueprint tab to select a blueprint for the item currently being written from the accordion control near the bottom of the page. Then click Submit .

For unclassified Question: While submitting an item, the selected level of the item must have a corresponding level in the blueprint. If the blueprint does not have levels up to the level selected for the item, an error message is displayed: Additional blueprint information required. Please select additional levels in the blueprint section below the Question.
Allow Question types

Choose the Question types you will allow the authors to submit for the project.

Note
titleLimiting the types of items in a project impacts everyone in the project

If a project is restricted to allow only certain types of items, all other types are disabled for the project. This includes the users' ability to write new items, the Project Manager and Observer's ability to search for items, and the exam builder's ability to add those items to exam forms. Also, the Cases page is not displayed - items belonging to R-Type or G-Type Cases are hidden unless the Project Manager enables those kinds of items in the project.

Create task for modification of any question from Group

This affects items that exist in multiple language versions, items having a language group with multiple language codes. When the Yes check box is selected and one of these items is modified, a task notification is created for authors of the remaining language versions of the item, stating that they must update their respective language version of the item.

Note

This setting does not affect a Project Manager.
