When creating incorrect tabs the idea is to anticipate the errors a typical student might make. On each incorrect tab you will select an incorrect answer and then explain why that specific answer is wrong and/or guide the students toward the right answer.
For example, for the question, "What is the product of 2 x 3?" you might expect some students to misinterpret this as "2 + 3." In this case, you could use an Incorrect tab for the answer "5," with specific feedback telling the student that they need to multiply, not add.
- To make a new incorrect tab, click the button on the top right hand corner of the screen.
- Next, answer the question incorrectly on the tab as you anticipate a student doing.
- Then using the text box tool, write your response to that incorrect answer (responses should be similar to something you would say to a student in a live tutoring session.)
- If you don't have enough room to write your response under the question, remember that you can use the “simple explanation” bin down at the bottom of the screen.
