The statement question is a question type that contains two or more statements and most often has a limited amount of options like true/false or yes/no. The grading of these statements is done with response rules which allow you to set the awarded points based on the number of correct statements. A commonly used statement rule set is the Kprime rules, which is easy to use with the statement question type.

This marks the question as a bonus question, which means the number of points awarded with this question will be counted until the maximum amount of points achievable for this assignment is reached. The points of the bonus question are not included in the maximum amount of points that can be achieved for the assignment If the student answers the question incorrectly, this will not be detracted from the number of points and the mark.
You will first need to assign which students are exempted from answering this question within the settings of your course. You can then enable which questions can be skipped by these students. They will see a notification in the test informing them they can skip the question. The number of points for this question will not be counted in their result. It is not possible to change this setting after the test has been taken.
Students will receive points when their answer is partly correct. For example, if the total number of points they can receive for a question is 2 and their answer is 50% correct, they will still receive 1 point. Without this option, they can only receive 0 or the maximum number of points.

A solution for the reviewers (and for participants when published). The model answer can be an extensive elaboration, an image, or a file.
Start with zero points (For the points-per-criteria and rubrics grading method only)
If this option is enabled the marking of this question will always start at zero points and the points will be added up when selecting the criteria. When this option is disabled, the marking will start with the maximum amount of points that can be awarded for this question and selecting the criteria will be subtracted from this maximum. This means that the criteria should be added as minus points of the total amount. The reviewer can then select the criteria if the student did not meet this with their answer, so it can be detracted from the total amount of points.
Limit minimum to zero points (For the points-per-criteria grading method only)
With this option enabled, it is not possible to go below zero points when selecting the different criteria. It is still possible to manually adjust the number of points to go below zero with the adjustment option during the reviewing.
Limit maximum to total points (For the points-per-criteria grading method only)
In the grading settings it is possible to set the maximum amount of points achievable with the question, separate from the points per criteria When this number deviates from the maximum amount achievable by adding up the criteria points, this option will cap the maximum amount of points to this manually set number.
