In most cases, we see that a one word feedback is provided for the learner’s responses to questions in assessments of online courses – Correct or Incorrect. The feedback provided for all right responses is the same. Similarly, a common feedback is provided for all wrong answers. But, we can provide separate feedback for each option to a question.
The main advantage of providing ‘individualized’ feedback is that the learning is reinforced effectively. Furthermore, as the feedback for each option is different, we need not add too much of content.
Recently, I was tasked with developing an assessment for a course, using Articulate Storyline, which comprised Multiple Choice Questions. Each of these questions had three options, and the feedback for each of these options is different from the others.
Here are the steps that I followed to meet the requirement.
Step1: Insert the MultipleChoice slide.
Step2: Enter aquestion and itsoptions.
Step3: By editing the fields below, you can provide separate feedback for and assign ‘individual’ scores toeach option.
Step4: By default, we can see the option By Question, is selected in the dropdown Feedback. I change it to By Choice.
Step5: By selecting By Choice, various fields with the Morebutton are added to provide separate feedback for each option.
Step6: In this step. I provide‘individualized’ feedback for each option.
- How to insert feedback for the first option: When you click the More button, the Question Level Feedbackwindow is opened. Enter the feedback text then click OK. You can also add the related audio for each feedback. The text highlighted in blue is the feedback for first option.
- How to insert feedback for the second option: You can add the feedback for the second option in the same way you added for the first.The text highlighted in blue is the feedback for second option.
- How to insert feedback for the third option: You can add the feedback for the third option in the same way you added for the first and second.The text highlighted in blue is the feedback for third option.
Step7: After entering all the feedback, Save & Close the question window.
Finally, the output for each option is as follows.
