Previously any answer marked correct would add points.
In an incremental update to Kahoot‘s suite of features, the support team rolled out a new option to teachers and presenters, allowing quiz questions to require all correct answers, opposed to any correct answers.
In the past, it was possible to mark any number of options as correct, but students and guests would only be able to choose one answer: So long as they clicked a correct answer they would receive a standard share of points.
This new feature is much more specific: If there are multiple answers then players must click each of those answers to receive points, and each answer is worth up to 1000 points, meaning one question could be worth up to 8x the points of another.
While it was technically possible to do this before–using responses such as all of the above, or by tweaking the question stem to say “which isn’t correct”–this allows more flexibility with potential responses.
The feature is also enabled for polls allowing respondents to a presentation to provide deeper insights and answer more broad-based questions.
Kahoot continues to adjust its gameplay options–just last month it allowed games to have multiple components including quiz questions, polls, sorted puzzles, and true/false type questions.
Pro, Premium, or Premium+ plans are required to access the new features.
