[New Quizzes] Preview individual question and feedback

Problem statement:

When authoring a quiz in new quizzes, it would be helpful if teachers could preview and test individual questions to ensure that both the question and the feedback for the question are working correctly before moving on to the next question. Currently, the instructor can preview the entire quiz, but for more complex question types such as formula questions and FITB that use regular questions, it would be most helpful to be able to preview the question at the time of creation and make adjustments as necessary,

Proposed solution:

Add a "preview" option to each question that opens a working version question in an overlay. The preview should allow the instructor to:

  • select or enter the correct answer
  • submit the answer -
  • view the feedback for the answer
  • refresh the question to try again (for formula questions, refreshing should show a different version of the question.
  • dismiss the preview and return to the editable version of the question

I support this, its an issue to not be able to test a question before its sent to students.

Oh, this would be cool!  Yes, we can preview once you've finished, but a question by question would be nice without having to Save and leave the edit screen.  That way, also, the teacher might not make a same mistake in the next questions.

Thank you for sharing this idea with the Instructure Community!

The Product Team reviewed all feature proposals recently, and unfortunately, this thread was identified as one that they would not be able to include in their current or future plans. While we appreciate your proposal, we also want to be transparent about the likelihood of something like this making it to production.

Thank you for collaborating, and we hope that you submit another idea in the future!
