Practice quizzes with immediate feedback after each question?

Jump to solution

Is it possible to structure multiple choice questions that students can answer and then immediately get feedback on their answer for that question (i.e., see if it is correct or incorrect and get an explanation)?  I realize students can submit their answers, then be shown their answers and retake the entire quiz, but I often use quizzing as a no credit practice exercise, in which students try to answer a question, get it wrong, and retry the same question having more information.

Is this possible in Canvas? Thanks.

Unfortunately, students can only see their answers and whether they scored correctly or not after they complete and submit the quiz at the end - not question by question.  However, what you can do and - hopefully should help, is you can still add the feedback that you would like to give for each question (based on each type of answer that the students provide).  This way, after completing and submitting the quiz, the students can see the questions, their answers, plus the feedback that you provide them.

Thanks, Rebecca.

So after reviewing the quiz and feedback for incorrect questions, the students would retake the quiz. As I understand it, they would not have the feedback in front of them when they retake it, right?

Sorry to monopolize your time.

No bother dsiegel@nesl.edu‌ at all!  Yes, they would start the quiz again, and the feedback would not be in front of them.  After you set up your feedback while building the quiz, I would recommend that you "Preview" the quiz so you can experience it as a student yourself.
