Give instant feedback in tests

It would be handy to give specifications to students, while they are taking the test. If they have an incorrect answer, the system could show a message, that the teacher has wrote. At the moment the student only has the possibility to see the correct answer after taking the test, but there is no feedback. 


E.g in chemistry, there could be a question about the elements. If the student chooses Ag instead of Au in defining "gold", the system could instantly give you feedback that says: "that is silver, Au is the correct answer".

    Hi, this is possible in the test tool today :-) 

    When setting up the test: click Options tab, select Forward only, select On question or On alternatives. When you create your questions you can insert a teacher comment for each of the answers the student can select from.

    Please see the attached screenshot.

    I've tried the directions posted by H. Gjellesvik on April 2, 2017 however it only allows a generic comments applied to all questions.  I can't customize feedback by question.  Our district is in the US and using version 3.105.0.365
