Further options

Students can reply to each other

This option will allow students to see and reply to the responses given by other students. Note that it is on by default!


Students can edit answer option

This will allow students to change their responses after submission. If you leave this option disabled, students are given a warning message before they confirm their submitted answer.

Submit answer?
You won't be able to make changes to your answer after you've submitted it

It is generally better to leave this disabled. There is still the option for the student to make a private comment after they have handed in their response.


Ask the question

When you are finished compiling your question, you can click the Ask button, or schedule for later. Once a Question is posted, your students will also receive an email advising them of the new posting. Make sure your students know how to turn in their work. Once handed in, the Teacher can view the students' work, and mark and return it to the student as needed.
