How do I add feedback to an assessment question in New Quizzes?

You can add feedback to any assessment question created with New Quizzes. Students can view your feedback when they view their results after submitting an assessment. In addition to general feedback, students will see all feedback comments relevant to their answer choices.

You can also add feedback to any answer choice when creating a Multiple Choice question.

Note: Because Essay and File Upload question types require manual grading, any feedback responses added to these question types only display after the quiz is graded and scores are posted.
