Our exams have "select all that apply" or multiple choice is what Canvas calls it. In our world we do not give partial credit for these questions. It is all or nothing for the point. I cannot find how to change this in Canvas, unless we cannot.

I'm not sure I understand the question, but I'll give it a shot.

In "New Quizzes" you can choose the "Multiple Answer" option.  If you also select "Exact Match" the student only gets credit for choosing all possible answers.  In other words, if there are two answers and they only choose one they get a zero.

Edit:  I couldn't find a similar feature in the "Old Quiz" format.  The Exact Match option is only in the New Quiz format.
