Answers

Each question can have many possible answers, but every question must have at least one correct answer with a value of 100%.

If the Randomize Answer Order check box in the main screen is checked, then the order of all questions’ answers will be randomized each time a student plays the widget.

Keep in mind that Randomize Answer Order will not affect the order of the questions, only the answers for each question.

Feedback

Feedback is purely optional, but may be used to provide helpful information for incorrect answers or additional details for correct answers.
