Fixing Multiple Choice Answer Formatting
Last modified on 04 July 2023 02:37 PM
Sometimes multiple choice quiz questions will be displayed in different colours or may have additional line spacing added.
Distracting formatting is commonly caused by pasting content from coded text such as Microsoft Word or web pages which copy unwanted format codes.
This article outlines how to repair the formatting easily and prevent student distractions during exams.
To fix formatting errors in quiz questions:
Your formatting issue should be resolved:
Note: The tag "<p>” is a paragraph marker that draws its style from a hidden style sheet which sets the paragraph colour and spacing. Some other coding overwrites that style with extra line spaces or different colours.
Note: Alternatively, deleting all HTML coding at the beginning and end of an answer choice will remove all colours and leave behind no line space issues.
