Create NCLEX (NGN) Extended Multiple Response Items

In the NCLEX, Extended Multiple Response items allow exam-takers to select one or more answer options at a time. This item type is similar to the current NCLEX multiple response items, but with more options and the opportunity for partial credit scoring.
