Rename Multiple Choice to Radio Buttons

    It only took a minute to figure out, but I think the Multiple Choice should be renamed "Radio Buttons". You can't actually select multiple items, you can select one, which is the point of radio buttons. The Checkboxes option is clear since you can check multiple boxes (that one could actually be called Multiple Choice, since you can choose multiples.)

    Actually, multiple choice could be applied to drop downs too (you're choosing from multiples, right?)

    Please consider renaming Multiple Choice to Radio Button(s). Thanks.

  2. Multiple Choice doesn't actually mean that you can select multiple, it's that you select an option from multiple choices. A Multiple Choice test typically consists of selecting the correct answer out of multiple choices.

    But I understand why Radio Buttons may be a more generic term that more people would immediately understand. We'll take it into consideration and discuss it. Thanks!

    You're right about Multiple Choice tests. Thinking about, that's a pretty stupid name for them, isn't it? How about single answer or multiple answer tests? (You have multiple choices from checkboxes and a drop down as well.)

    In any case, thanks for considering changing it. I think radio buttons is more standard but maybe that's just me.

    Thank you
