Help your learners succeed with hints, distractors, and sample answers

Help students better understand the question with hints and multiple types of feedback. Distractor rationale and/or optional hints are particularly useful in formative assessments where they can help students pinpoint key needs and adjust accordingly.

Hints with your questions

Choose to display hints within assessments to help students struggling with a particular topic or question.

Distractor rationale

Distractor rationale makes it easy for content creators to keep learners in the loop with real-time feedback. By explaining why a response or distractor is invalid, authors can give students additional context during tests to boost learning outcomes.

Authors can employ distractor rationale per question or per response. Per question enables feedback for an entire question, while per response allows for unique feedback against each possible response.

Content authors can preview distractor rationale at question or response levels through Learnosity’s out-of-the-box Author Site or through the Author API.

Sample answers

Easily add a sample question to the custom fields to help both students and assessors with question interpretation. Students can get a sense of what’s expected, while graders can see what a good answer looks like.
