1.8 Review options

This section controls what is displayed during and after an assessment has been submitted. The matrix offers a wide variety of settings that control the visibility of certain question elements.

1.8 The review options section of the iCMA definition form

During the attempt: settings for use with interactive with multiple tries and immediate feedback question behaviours

Immediately after the attempt: i.e. as soon as the assessment is submitted.

Later, while the iCMA is still open: At the OU we expect this column to be the same as the 'Immediately after the attempt' column.

After the iCMA is closed: i.e. after the closing time and date specified on this form.

The attempt: Controls whether an attempt and student responses can be reviewed. At the OU we would expect these boxes to be checked.

Whether correct: Controls the use of colours behind the navigation panel and student's response and the appearance of Correct/Partially correct/Incorrect in the status panel that is found between the navigation panel and the question. The colours are accompanied by hidden textual information for screen readers.

Marks: Controls the display of marks alongside each question. This setting also controls the display of the overall grade on the iCMA.

Specific Feedback: This controls the display of the feedback that is supplied to specific responses on the question editing form.

General feedback: This should be shown to all students irrespective of the correctness of their answer. It should contain the correct answer to a question and an explanation of why that answer is correct.

Right answer: This will usually not be checked. If checked Moodle automatically adds information on what is and is not the correct answer to each question, however how the system does this is not satisfactory for use at the OU. We strongly recommend that authors use the General feedback box to inform students what the correct answer is and why.

Overall feedback: This can be matched to the student’s overall grade on the iCMA and is completed at the bottom of the iCMA definition form. Please see the below.
