[LON-CAPA-users] omit message for option response

Hi again,

With respect to Gerd's comments - I assumed you meant the "checkbox 
mode" of optionresponse. There are - of course ;-) - always several 
possibilities in LON-CAPA to achieve a goal.

If you like to keep with two options (true/false, yes/no, green/blue, 
...) and don't need the checkboxes, Gerd's second idea helps indeed.

I'd like to add that this forces the students to explicitly decide for 
an answer.
"checkbox mode": Not checking one option might be caused by just having 
forgotten to answer.
"normal mode": All options need to be selected. LON-CAPA would reject 
the answer if one option was not selected and provide the feedback "Some 
items were not submitted."

So, the latter case appears sometimes as the better choice.
