    I believe Question 3 has two correct answers.


    If you are gathering evidence to support a hypothesis, you are ignoring evidence against it. That is bias, at least in my book.

    Seven out of seven correct.

    I can understand Jeremy’s viewpoint. I also considered that reasoning, as “support” sounded a bit like confirmation bias in action. While a good scientist isn’t necessarily ignoring evidence against a hypothesis even while looking for evidence to support it, substituting the phrase “support or disprove,” or the word “test,” might have been a better way to say it. But when I saw the other answer, knowing only one could be chosen, I knew that was the better one.

    I’d like to add that this happened to me once or twice before, in previous quizzes. Because of the usual behavior of check-boxes, I checked one with the intention of also checking another, but the quiz moved on to the next question as soon as I chose the first. That’s when I learned only one answer was possible.
    It might be better to use “radio buttons” for the quiz since they typically designate only one possible answer.
