SparkLearn® 3.15 Release Notes

November 2023


The SparkLearn 3.15 release focuses on a new way for learners to answer questions and updates to underlying frameworks and libraries. 


  • Quiz Questions Can Have Multiple Correct Answers
    • Quiz questions can now be created with a “Mark all that apply” answer type, requiring learners to choose one or more answer options before submitting their responses. This allows Content Managers greater flexibility in question types and responses.
