Editing an Activity: Question, Answers, and Feedback
Open the Answers tab to edit your question text, and add answers and feedback.
Remember, questions are added from the Concept context panel.
Below the question, you can enter the default feedback that will be used for any answers (correct or incorrect) that don't have specific feedback.
ProTip: View our best practices for writing activities for some tips on writing effective questions, answers, and feedback.
Each question should have several answer options, consisting of one correct answer, and one or more distractors (incorrect answer options).
You can have as many distractors as you wish; however, we recommend no more than a total of 6 answer options.
Use the icons at the bottom of each answer option to set the following:
|Indicate if the answer is correct or incorrect.|
Only one answer option can be marked as correct.
|Lock the answer in position. |
For example, you may want to lock "All of the Above" in the last answer position.
|Indicate if the answer should be visible to learners.|
There is no way to delete an answer option, so if you no longer want it to appear you should set it to be hidden. This helps maintain learner data.
|Override the default feedback.|
This displays a new field where you can enter (and translate) feedback specific to that answer option.
You can drag and drop an answer into a new position or use the arrows to change the answer order.
Lock an answer in place if you want it to always appear in the same position.
For example, when creating a true or false question, you probably want to lock "true" in the first position and "false" in the second position.
As another example, when creating a multiple choice question, you probably want to lock "all of the above" in the last position.
All non-locked answers will be presented in a random order.
