Multiple Choice: process of checking

I'd suggest a better way of checking how answers are marked as correct in multiple choice quizzes. The problems are (tested with "Wrong Choices Provided"):

.) Right now, when clicking on one of the choices (A,B,C,...) it's immediately revealed if the selected choice was wrong and which one was correct by displaying a red and green frame around the answers.
.) There's always only one single answer recognized as correct, although there are more than one flagged with "correct choice" in the facet of the note.
.) Answers are sampled together from different notes, mixing correct and wrong answers, but only allowing marking one answer as correct even if there are ones that are correct. Essentially correct answers are flagged as wrong, even when they are not (screenshot).

My proposal:

.) Click and select different choices (A, B, C,..) then click on an extra button "check answers" and then, lastly indicate if the selected answers where correct or not
.) the interface should indicate clearly which answers where selected right and wrong (see example screenshots)
.) the study mode "wrong choices provided" should not mix facets from different notes rather take the facets per note

so long,

    Yes, this is an ongoing discussion here. We would like to support having the option for multiple choice quizzes with multiple answers, but currently that is not supported.

    The results you are seeing are because you have setup multiple correct answers for each note, and that will not work properly.

    We've heard this feedback before, and would like to see if we can add support in future. It requires quite a bit overhaul of slideshow logic, and even navigation behavior (eg it is annoying to have to hit an extra button to check answers, but otherwise how do you know someone is finished answering. That is a big downside in my view.)
