The way that instructors release test results and feedback has changed with the latest update. Here are some tips to help understand how it works now.
Start by going to Edit Test Options.
In the Show Test Results and Feedback to Students area, there are two rows of options available. The top row is the main condition for releasing results and feedback, and the bottom row is an optional sub-condition, which has different options depending on what was selected for the main condition.
By default the settings are as pictured below.
The main condition is set to release the score for each question immediately after the student submits the test. There is no sub-condition, as no conditions are selected in the second row.
Other options are available in the When drop menu, including After Due Date, etc. There is no option, though, to not show students anything. If you select --Choose--, it is the same as if After Submission is selected, students will immediately see their results. If you do not want students to see the test score, you need to hide the column from students in the grade center.
If you just want students to only see their score but not see which questions they got right or wrong, you need to select the appropriate option from the When drop menu (your choice) but then leave all of the other options alone. If you do not check any other boxes, students will only be able to see their score and will not have access to their test attempt.
If the Score per Question box is checked, students see the questions from their attempt and the number of points they received (if any) per question.
The Answers area offers many different options. If Submitted is the only box checked, students will only see the answers they selected, with no others listed. If Correct is the only box selected, then students just see the correct answers. If both Correct and Submitted are checked, students see both but not any of the other possible answers. If All Answers are selected, students can see all available answers, but they still need Correct and Submitted checked to see which is the correct answer and which was the one selected, respectively. So you can mix and match these options to your liking.
Feedback will be shown if checked. When you create a test question, or edit an existing one, there is an area to provide correct and incorrect feedback.
The Show Incorrect Questions places an icon with a red X next to questions that were answered incorrectly.
You can use Student Preview to check how the test appears in My Grades. Just remember to set it so that the Student Preview data is saved when you leave the preview.
