reason, hints, and feedback

If you check the Reason box, students will have a place where they justify their answer. Note that this will have no effect on their score unless you review their rationale for answer and manually adjust their point total.

If you enter Hints in authoring, students will be able to view them WHILE they are taking the test, provided that you check “show hints” in the assessment settings. If “show hints” is enabled, students will be able to click on a link and they will see the hints you offered in an overlay pop-up window.

The Feedback area is where you can enter additional clarification information on the concepts covered in this question. This feedback will be seen by all students when they review their submission (if enabled in settings).
