Hei guys,

Supposedly if i ask:
Which roads are meeting at intersection X ?
Answers ABCD ...
Any combination of the answers would be correct CBDA ... DBCA ... and so on.
Partial answer would be correct too ... not complete, but correct.(graded individually)
Now the problem is that the quiz only takes into consideration the exact order i was giving and its a nightmare to write all of the 24 permutations just in case someone chooses to answer so.
Also wildcards would be awesome:
3 letter animals that has the ending -at!
Answer: cat, rat, bat
... also in any order

Can you please if this is possible... and if not ... is there any quizmaker that does this ?

... maybe i should just start learning programming :)))))

Thank you for this question.
First option can be easily implemented with Multiple Response question type:
The student can select several answers from the list.

The second option can be created as "Fill in the blank":
You can add several blanks so that the student won't have to use commas.

You can view a quick sample by this link:

Thank you!
The second quiz with animals is possible with the usage of >Alfabetical order< allthough it should not be necessary.

I was thinking more like a function that you write inside the answer to let the quiz know that it is allowed to use a wildcard that can be a certain letter ... or a number of letters in a certain order or in any order.
Something like {=r,=b,=c} *(at). Which would mean that the quiz accepts answers that have ending at and start with letter r,b,c.

For the first one ... i do not want them to choose from a set of things ... i would like them to write them down... so they can learn better.

As i said it is an impossible job to write inn all the possible combinations.

I mean how can i tell a kid with a straight face that the answer was incorrect and there is another street first not the one she wrote.
