  8. In the Choices section, complete the following actions:
    1. Enter each choice.
    2. Select the radio button corresponding to the correct option.
      Note: By default, Assessment provides 4 option fields. If you want to add more options, click the Add a choice button that is displayed after the fourth field.
  9. In the Difficulty level list, select the difficulty level of the problem: Easy, Medium, and Hard.
  10. In the Score section, perform the following tasks:
    1. Enter the maximum marks that you want to assign to candidates if they answer the question correctly. For example, 2 for Easy, 4 for Medium, and 6 for Hard questions.
    2. Enter the negative score that is subtracted from the candidates' total score if they answer the problem incorrectly. For example, if you enter 1, then 1 mark will be subtracted from the candidate's total score.
  11. In the Time section, if you want to make the question a timed MCQ, then add the maximum time in the Max Time field within which the candidate must answer the problem. If this time is greater than 0, then the question is treated as a timed question.
  12. In the Tags section, add the tags that are relevant to the question.
    For example, if your problem is assessing the knowledge of inheritance in Java, then you can add multiple tags such as Java, Inheritance, OOP, and so on. These tags can be used to auto-generate tests for specific profiles. 
  13. You can click Save as draft to save the question for further editing or Click Publish if you are ready to add the question to your library.
