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".

    Thanks for explaining further. We will share it with the relevant teams and consider it for future development. We will keep the suggestion on the ideas portal to see if it gets more ‘up votes’. This helps us understand which ideas are most popular.

    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.
