Quizzes that allow us to choose specific facets for both prompts and answers.

I'm not sure if this is a bug, a feature that hasn't been implemented yet, or my misunderstanding how the app works, but I've noticed that the "Multiple Choice Quiz" option isn't as powerful as it could be.

I have a stack of notes, each with five facets, and I'd like the ability to choose in my multiple choice quizzes, when sharing incorrect answers between notes, which specific facet # would provide my pool of prompts, and which specific facet # would provide my pool of possible answers. The current options don't seem to allow this.

For example, let's say I want a Multiple Choice Quiz, with incorrect answers shared between all notes in my stack. Each note has 5 facets. I want my prompt to always pull from Facet #1, and I want my possible answers (both correct and incorrect) to pull from Facet #4. Currently, it seems that no matter what options I choose, the prompt is always Facet #1. And although all incorrect answers will pull from Facet #4 if that is what I choose (in this case, the option would be "3rd Remaining Facet"), the correct answer will not pull from Facet #4. In my experience, it always seems to pull from Facet #2. This makes the "quiz" very predictable and useless, since the correct answer will always be the one that isn't in the same facet as the other options. The only useful quiz, in this instance, would be the one gained by selecting "1st eligible facet" under "Prompt (Facet #1), and "1st remaining facet" under "Response(s)," (Facet #2).

I hope this explained the problem clearly. Being able to quiz specifically by facet would make this app infinitely more useful. Right now, the multiple choice + share incorrect answers feature is only useful for the first two facets.

    Hi Bryan,
    I am way late with this response. Our email system marked your email as spam. My apologies.
    I hope by now you figured out how to use the quiz in Studies. If not, here is an explanation.

    1. You make cards using the Multiple Choice template (though you can do it manually too if you follow some rules)
    2. The first facet is the prompt
    3. The second facet is the correct answer
    4. Other facets are incorrect
    5. You start a quiz study session for the stack

    Studies automatically reorders the facets when in a quiz study session. The correct answer will not be the first; it could be put anywhere on the slide, even though you did have it as the first response in your editing mode.

    Note that the template for quiz notes is just a convenience. To create a multiple choice note, you must mark one facet as a prompt (use Q button), and mark the incorrect answers by clicking the third button at the top-left of each facet (Incorrect choice in a multiple choice quiz). Those are the rules to follow. The template is the easiest way though.

    Kind regards,
