Tests Where All Answers Are Correct...

I've been thinking about this for a while. What if there was a multiple choice test that provided different levels of correctness? What could we learn from the results?

For example:

Where is the city of Washington D.C. located?
A. The United States of America
B. The Northern & Western Hemispheres
C. Closer to the Atlantic Ocean than to the Indian Ocean.
D. In North America

Do the answer choices demonstrate a level of knowledge and an opportunity for further learning? What if the student had to explain why they chose the answer they selected? Does anyone see any value in pursuing this approach?
