Quiz Feedback

When the quiz or test is deployed the only feedback the student will receive is their grade. If any component of the test needs to be graded by the instructor (an essay, for example), the instructor will need to finalize the grade before the student can find out the results of their exam.

If the instructor wants students to know the correct answers to a quiz, then the instructor must update the feedback options. The correct answers should not be released before everybody in the class has finished their quiz and all grades are final. We do not want one student to be able to pass along the correct answers to others who have not taken the quiz yet. Once all quizzes are graded the instructor can go back to the test options and select the type of feedback you want students to receive. You will need to do this for every test that you want the answers released for.
