Every multiple choice Activity includes two or more answer options. These options include the correct answer along with one or more distractors (wrong answers). 

The effectiveness of an Activity has a lot to do with the distractors you create. Distractors that are unclear or confusing can create frustration; while distractors that are too obvious make it easy for learners to guess.

We recommend creating your distractors with the following best practices in mind: 

  • Write plausible distractors
  • Include only one correct answer
  • Avoid answer bias
  • Lock your answer options in a logical order
