Standard Format for Importing Feedback with the Various Question Types

With an Exam file, feedback for individual answer choices can be imported by placing the feedback immediately after the answer choice and by beginning the line with the @ symbol. There must be at least one space between the @ symbol and the feedback text.

Example: Title: Speed of Light
3) Who determined the exact speed of light?
a. Albert Einstein
@ No. Albert Michelson determined the exact speed of light.
*b) Albert Michelson
@ Yes. Albert Michelson won the Nobel Prize for Physics for determining the exact speed of light.
etc.

"General Feedback" can be imported in a similar way, but it must appear immediately after the question wording and before any of the answer choices. The line must also begin with the @ symbol, and there must be at least one space between the @ symbol and the feedback text.

Example: Title: Speed of Light
3) Who determined the exact speed of light?
@ Albert Michelson was the first American to win the Nobel Prize in Physics (1907).
a. Albert Einstein
@ No. Albert Michelson determined the exact speed of light.
*b) Albert Michelson
@ Yes. Albert Michelson won the Nobel Prize for Physics for determining the exact speed of light.
etc.

As shown in the previous example, both types of feedback can be used within a single question. (Note: if you are importing questions into a survey file, all feedback designations will be ignored.)
