In a question, there are a series of tabs. When a student encounters a question, it displays the Question tab for them. After they hit Check Answer it follows the order of tabs in an “if, then” style. For example, if they got the question correct, then it displays the Correct tab. If they got the question wrong in an anticipated way (distractor for multiple choice, for example), then it displays the Incorrect tab specific to that mistake. If it cannot find specific feedback for what the student entered, then it displays the Default tab.
To see the feedback for each tab, click the Toggle Feedback button.
- Question: This tab shows the question just as it should appear to students without feedback or answer choices selected. The content of this tab will show up on all the other tabs of the question.
- Correct: This is the tab that automatically shows when the student submits the correct answer. The feedback for this tab shows the solution that students will see if they answer correctly, give up on a problem, or run out of attempts.
- Incorrect: This tab shows a specific incorrect answer choice, explains why it is wrong, and gives information that should help lead the student towards the right answer.
- Default: This tab shows generic information asking the student to make sure they submitted an answer and/or that their current answer is wrong. This tab will be triggered only if one of the other specific incorrect tabs was not triggered.
To see how these tabs work from a student perspective, close out of the preview window and go to the Assignment tab, then click on Assignment Preview in the top right.
