Predefined feedback per question and per alternative

This is available for Authors and Planners.

Feedback for questions and alternatives can be defined when authoring a question. If the Planner selects to enable this feature in the After test settings, candidates will be able to see the feedback after the test is closed. If instant post delivery access is enabled, this will also show the feedback immediately.

This feature:

Note: predefined feedback cannot be changed after the test is activated. If there are any issues with a question, we suggest to use the grading tool's annotation feature to provide feedback to the candidates.



Instructions for planner

In Deliver tool, options for feedback can be found under After test - Post-submission review. The options become available if the question set contains feedback on one or more questions and/or feedback for one or more of its alternatives.

If Show feedback for all alternatives is enabled, the candidates will see the feedback for all the alternatives. Leave it disabled if you only want to show the feedback for the alternative the candidate chose.

Note that the feedback will be shown to candidates immediately after submission if Instant post delivery access is enabled.
