What is the maximum number of answer choices a multiple choice question can have?
Posted by Respondus Support

This depends on the learning management system being used. The maximum number of answer choices is 20 for the Blackboard Learning System. The number is 26 for D2L Brightspace, Pearson Learning Studio (eCollege) , Moodle, Instructure Canvas, and the IMS QTI personality.

Moodle, Blackboard Learn and newer versions of other learning management systems support more than 26 answer choices where additional answers can be added after the question is published to the course. However, for questions with more than 26 answers in the LMS, Respondus 4 will only retrieve the first 26 answers in the question.
