Item Feedback in Scorpion gives test administrators an opportunity to provide instant feedback to examinees after a question is answered or after the exam. You can create feedback for the item as a whole and/ or for individual responses. Examples of item feedback:
- Information on why a particular answer is correct or incorrect.
- Where the examinee can find reference material relating to that item.
Item feed back needs to each item and enabled in the form.
Creating item feedback
1- Click on the item you would like to add the item feedback to or add a new item. (This article will show an example of feedback being added to an existing item. See also “Using the Item Editor in Scorpion.”)
2- Scroll down to the content section. For item feedback directed at the whole item click on the Show stem feedback check box. For item feedback directed at individual responses, click on Show more.
3- You will see new text boxes appear. Under stem you can add feedback directed at the whole item. Under the item response options you have two text boxes to add item feedback. The first box is what the examinee will see the second is for the test administrator organization, the examinee will not see what is in the second box.
4- After adding the feedback make sure to save the changes by clicking the save button in the top left-hand corner.
