I've created several multiple choice questions in excel. Each question has a dropdown menu with 4 choices each.

Is there a way I can set this up so when a user selects the wrong answer they are alerted?

Is there a way I can set this up so points are accrued for each correct answer?

I did not get nothing "profi" so I created just simple and if nothing maybe it will be better than nothing :)
Correct answer could be highlighted with green background, wrong by red (unfortunately manual work for each answer). Each correct answer could have points which can be counted by formula

Thank you but I need more detail on how to set this up. For example, what would I do to have correct answers give a green background and incorrect answers give a red background?

This red/green background is made by conditional formatting (check it on Home ribbon in excel) where you tell what is right answer (green) and what not (red).
In B column is formula (IF) which validate the answer - if it is correct (true) than it gives certain amount of points, if not (false) it gives nothing (or less, as you desire).
Because B column formula contains right answer I make this column hidden (better will be to lock worksheet to prevent user unhide it). Finally in C column is just a refference to B to show points.
Overall score is simple Sum of points

Just ask if you need anything else
