New And Improved Answer Feedback For Quizzes

Updated on February 1, 2022

Sensei LMS 3.14 has launched with a focus on improving the feedback options for learners on quizzes.

Along with quiz feedback, this release also includes several bug fixes and performance improvements under the hood.

Answer feedback blocks

Answer feedback is now editable in the block editor, separately for correct and incorrect answers. Best of all, feedback can now show any content – including formatted text, images, and videos!

See the feedback options for yourself – which work with Multiple Choice, True/False, and Gap Fill question types – by editing any lesson in a quiz and scrolling down below lesson content.

You’ll find that editing quiz feedback looks the same as it does on the front end of a lesson.

More granular settings

Along with the new feedback options, you can now adjust what information learners see when reviewing a quiz after grading.
