Review Exercise At the top left of the screen the student will see how many questions have been answered, the total points scored, and the percentage. At the top you can see that there are 21 questions in this Review Exercise. The student has answered numbers 1, 2, and 8 incorrectly – those are highlighted in red. Number 3 is light gray – that is the question on which the student is currently working. Number 21 is highlighted in green which means the student answered that question correctly. When a student answers a multiple choice question correctly he/she will automatically be moved to the next question. This is the message a student will receive after giving an incorrect answer. Clicking OK will take the student back to the exercise where he/she can continue working on that question or move on to another. Once a student has answered all questions, whether correctly or incorrectly, the Finish button will be live and can be clicked. Once the student clicks Finish his/her score will be submitted. Exercise This is what a student will see when working on an Exercise. He/She will only have one chance to answer a question and will not be told whether the answer was right or wrong. A student may answer questions in any order he/she wishes by clicking any question number. Completed questions are blue, the current question is grey, and unanswered questions are teal. When a student answers all questions he/she should click Finish. Exercise/Review Exercise After the student submits the exercise he/she will see this screen, which will tell the score received on all questions. If there were any short answer, fill in the blank, or graphing questions, you will need to score those.
