Check Answer


Once a question has been answered, the student may select Check answer to get instant feedback on his response. If he is correct, he will receive a green check and an option to see a detailed solution. If he is incorrect a detailed solution will automatically appear and the student will have the option to retry the page.



Retry this page


Once a student answers a question, a Retry this page button will appear on the screen. By selecting this button the page will be regenerated with different variables and the student will be able to attempt the page again.


Show me an Example
