How can I have a Quiz type "Arithmetic Question" (algorithmic question) and at the same time "Multiple Choice"?
The "Arithmetic Question" type requires only one answer in the form of a textbox. I would like to have the answers as multiple choice.

    Hi Costa,

    I want to ensure I'm understanding your need correctly - Are you wanting to show students an equation and then have them select from multiple correct answers?

    If so you could use a Multiple Choice question then in the Questions Text field you should click the "Other Insert Options" button and you can add an equation there.

    Thanks for answering, but not exactly.

    I want to create an algorithmic (different numbers for every student) math question using "Arithmetic Question". This I can do. But the answer can be given only as a single answer in a text box. I would like to have the option of students selecting from multiple choice answers that I provide.
