Tokyo - Activities | Multiple Matrix answer

"Multiple Matrix activities" allow creating a question offering multiple answers, but these answer options may be inserted in a text or a table. 

This type of activity is divided in three areas:

A. Wording area. It includes a sample text by default, but other components like images, audios, and videos can be added.

B. Answer options. This area may also include more answer options and/or new "Columns" that include new contents.

C. Feedback. It is possible to configure some positive feedback and negative feedback related to questions. Apart from text, feedback can also include an image.

Setup process

  • Step 1. Create the activity
  • Step 2. Set up activity properties
  • Step 3. Set up the wording
  • Step 4. Add answer options
  • Step 5. Advanced layout design: how to add columns
  • Step 6. Configure feedback

Step 1. Create the activity

There are two preset templates available to add a Single Matrix activity: an empty activity or an activity where various answer options are inserted inside a table (Single matrix).

A. Activities with table format help to quickly create an activity where we can select one or more correct options per row and/or column.

B. Empty activities allow us to create activities from scratch and customise them.

Step 2. Set up activity properties

After adding the activity, go to the "Properties" tab and configure them:




Activity title.


This property is only avaliable with a quiz with a "Quiz" view.All the questions have the same weight by default, but we can decide how much questions count towards the final score. See here to know how to calculate quiz scores depending on the weight of each question included in the quiz.


This is only applied when we add questions within a quiz with an "Activity block" view (see Section 3.27.).

This property allows indicating the number of attempts available to complete the activity. If you want unlimited attempts, write "0" attempts. (It will only be finished after overcoming the activity).


Score required to mark activities as complete and get a positive feedback. Getting a 100% score is required by default.
This is the formula to calculate the score: "correct options marked - wrong options marked / total correct options".
If an activity had 6 correct options, the score would be divided by 6 (16%) and results would be:

  • 2 correct options: 33 points
  • 3 correct options: 50 points
  • 3 correct options and 1 wrong option: 33 points
  • 6 correct options: 100 points
  • 6 correct options and 1 wrong option: 83 points

Step 3. Set up the wording


Write the text for the question (see here the setup options available for texts).

2. Opcionalmente, puedes añadir más componentes dentro del enunciado. Asegúrate de tener el enunciado seleccionado (la forma más cómoda es mediante el camino de migas) y, en la pestaña "Añadir" incorpora los componentes que necesites.

Paso 4. Añade opciones de respuesta

3. Selecciona el texto que encontrarás debajo del enunciado. Debes redactar el contenido que deseas y dejar los espacios correspondientes a las opciones de respuesta.  

4. Sitúa el cursor en el sitio del texto donde quieres añadir una opción. En el editor de textos, despliega el menú "Componentes"y selecciona "Opción Matrix Multiple". La opción se añadirá en el texto. Repite la operación con tantas opciones como necesites.

5. Tras añadir todas las opciones deseadas, selecciona una opción correcta, accede a la pestaña "Propiedades" y márcala como verdadera en la propiedad "Corrrecto". Repite el proceso en todas las opciones que sean correctas.

Step 5. Advanced layout design: how to add columns

Normally wordings and answer options are enough to configure activities correctly, but sometimes we want to add especial elements (images, audios, etc.) to create more complex layout designs. So, we will be able to add "Columns".
Columns can be inserted anywhere: after wordings, after answer options, etc.

Within a column, we can add different elements: images audios, videos, texts or answer options. Within the "Properties" tab, we can configure properties like "Size", "Offset" and "It's the last column".




This is the size occupied by a column inside a row. Columns can occupy 1-12 spaces.


This option allows creating a breaking space on the left of the column, which can be visually noticed. Offset can have 1-12 spaces.

It's the last column

This property allows marking a column as the last column within a row. This means that the second column will be placed below the first column, so that the third column appears as the last one within the row. So, this example shows that more options could have been included in the first row, but we have decided to insert them in the next row.

Step 6. Configure feedback

Finally, we write the texts of positive and negative feedback to finish the setup.
As you can see, the text can be replaced by an image.
If you do not want to include any feedback, you can delete it.
