There are three primary functionality settings, as described below. You can test each of these in the Multiple Choice example that follows.
Retry: Students have the opportunity to retry questions when they get them wrong. There is no limit on the number of times a student may retry should they continue to get the answer wrong. Once a student gets the right answer, there is no longer the option to retry.
Show Solution: After a student attempts an answer, a new option to “show solution” appears. Selecting that button will darken the dot for the correct answer, but will not yet display the feedback. The student would then have to retry and select the right answer in order to see the feedback.
Randomize Answers: Answers are NOT randomized. This is primarily so we can label answers A, B, C, D and so on to more easily refer to them in the feedback, as well as to aid faculty in identifying options when discussing the question with students.
Note that the above settings may not apply to every question type. Further, in addition to these basic settings, each question type has its own unique settings that can be adjusted according to your needs. For instance, questions that require a student to type out an answer can accept minor spelling mistakes (or not), and can be case-sensitive (or not). Some settings might be best determined on a case-by-case basis depending on the nature of the question and what you’re trying to accomplish.
