CheckBox and RadioButton Groups are almost identical.

CheckBox Groups can have 0, 1, or more selected choices.

RadioButton Groups typically have one and only one choice selected.  Clicking on another choice will clear the previous choice.  They can have 0 choices selected, but this is usually the initial state of a multiple choice question.  They cannot have more than 1 choice selected.

To edit, add, or reorder the answers:
  1. Select a CheckBox or RadioButton Group on the stage.
  2. In the Properties panel, click the Edit Answers button.
    Double click on the object.
  3. In the Edit Answers window, you can:
  • Add new answers by clicking the Add button.
  • Delete answers by selecting the undesired answer and clicking the Delete button.
  • Reorder answers by selecting the desried answer and using the Move Arrows.
  • Edit answers by selecting the desired answer and clicking the Edit button.
    -or by-
    Double clicking on the desired answer.

Edit the answers by double clicking on what you want to change

Edit the answers by double clicking on what you want to change.  Double click on the object to open the answers, double click on the answer to edit the text.

    You can randomize answers if you want to deter learners from simply learning the positions of correct answers, rather than learning the .  Randomization only occurs when previewing or viewing published content, and is only cosmetic.  This means it does not effect the order of the answers when viewing them on the Authoring Stage, or in any actions.

    You can also customize the look of the CheckBox Groups or RadioButton Groups in a number of ways.
