Please consider an update that gives us the ability to provide a sentence or short paragraph explaining the correct answer when a student gets it wrong!!! ... VERY IMPORTANT!!
This is available in Sensei 1.6 – http://www.woothemes.com/2014/06/take-learning-next-level-sensei-1-6/
See the docs relating to this feature at http://docs.woothemes.com/document/question-bank/#section-5
This hasn't been part of an update yet? Surely there has to have been some feedback update at some point... Is Sensei dead?
We absolutely MUST have this for the build we are working on. The user needs to see an explanation of WHY an answer is a certain way. Some of these people are taking theology classes and this is uber critical. Here is what we need for the site:
Session 2: Mortal Sin
1. True or False: Some sins carry a mortal weight because they destroy our relationship with God.
Catechism 1855: “Mortal sin destroys charity in the heart of man by a grave violation of God's law; it turns man away from God, who is his ultimate end and his beatitude, by preferring an inferior good to him.”
2. Which of the following is not a condition for mortal sin?
a. Serious matter
b. Full knowledge
c. Full consent of the will
d. Trivial matter
Answer: d. Trivial matter. If a sin is to be mortal, it must be serious matter.
If you disable the 'Reset quiz' button in Sensei > Settings, then the quiz will display the right/wrong answers when the user submits the quiz.
If the reset button is enabled it won't show that, as then they could just retake the quiz and get 100%, which seems pointless.
Any word on this??? Need to be able to tell the student which they got wrong, so they can try again. Or, tell them as soon as they press the button that they got it wrong.
Good to know Woo is on it. Releases take time folks!
I'd like to use this for a test prep site, so this is what I'd like to see and I think would please most people:
- Excerpt like field added for answer explanation
- Student enters quiz/lesson
- Student selects incorrect answer
- Sensei displays notification/alert box under the correct question with explanation
- Student can now select correct answer and move on
That's it. I don't think it needs to be more complicated than that setup. I think generating reports, etc is non-priority in this case. Seems like that solution would hit home for most people in this thread.
Well, I'm out--I understand that Woothemes is big and busy, but I have to go with the plugin that actually does what I need it to do. I was hoping that this would be integrated at some point in the future, and I may switch back... But I just can't wait any longer.
Thanks for all the fish!
this is immediate student feedback option, if the student gets it wrong, here's the reason, or the correct answer, very important!
My "quizzes" are really journal entries and I would LOVE to be able to comment on their entry and have that auto-generate an email. So, my need it a individual users' quiz level comment. Not an after quiz report as some commenters need (not that that wouldn't also be awesome).
The more I think about this, the more convinced I am that there should be some sort of after-quiz report generated. This can page can have it's own template, where designers can customize the design of the page. Have a couple of functions that calls all the question from the quiz you just took, and either displays ALL of them in a list, or ONLY the questions the user got wrong. The questions the user missed can have a distinct set of CSS so that it's appearance can be altered.
You might also consider adding an additional field to the question creation form that allows the test maker to add a short message that displays next to missed questions on this after-quiz report page. It would be nice to have the ability to add such data for every right and wrong answer—that way the test-maker can create comments that explain answers, and help user retention. If they choose not to enter information into these fields, then it doesn't show up. I think that this is an ideal approach to this issue, and I would be perfectly happy with the unique CSS rules that would allow me to change a wrong answer's appearance.

I absolutely must have this feature or I'm going to need to dump sensei asap and move on. Please confirm that this is on the way.

I agree wholeheartedly. To add to it, when I grade quizzes automatically & require 100% pass rate, it would be really helpful to have to option to tell the students which problems were correct and which were incorrect.
For the feedback, there would be a series of "?" next to the problems where I can embed text, image, or video to explain exactly why an answer is correct or incorrect
I will say this though, Sensei is useless to me without this feature. I have bought the product with a multi-site license, but it remains dormant on my client's website presently. Please, this is an almost perfect solution for what I need. Just a few more features, and it will be exactly what I need.
I think all the suggestions have merit here. It all comes down to having some form of inline feedback when a user answers questions and submits a quiz. It may be best to keep what displays next to each answered question in it's own template file, which can be structured and styled to the designer's liking. Provide a number of shortcodes that can be used to call out specific pieces of metadata connected to each question (such as text or image that displays when you get an answer right or wrong, a little blurb that shows a hint, or gives the correct answer instead). You could then place an interface in the back end that allows the users to enter all or none of this information.
I believe that this would allow everybody to customize this feature to their liking. Everybody's needs concerning this feature could be different. From including a hint or image (think about it—what if a user is developing a test for children? They will want to be able to place pictures here), to simply changing the color of the surrounding div to indicate success or failure. We need the ability to customize what the users see, and I think that using a template file is the best means to accomplish that.
Here's the plugin that makes the really nice-looking presentation I mentioned below. It's <i>m</i>Touch Quiz:
Please, please tell us a date that you're shooting for so we can know if we can wait (for example) a couple of weeks or if we should just go ahead and make our websites with other plugins. I'm hoping that you'll get this added so we can use Sensei.
Here's a perfect example of how it should work and how easily the feedback can be provided:
This is the end of June. I MUST have my courses online by August when school starts. We want Sensei. However, not being able to give students feedback is a deal-breaker for my school.
Most of the other plugins have this feature (even Blackboard tells students which questions were wrong, though it doesn't say why). In fact, I thought it was so standard that I didn't notice that you didn't have it until right before I was giving it a last look before I paid.
Students need to know which questions they got wrong, and then be able to see a box that automatically tells them what the right answer is. This can be done by giving us a place to enter the rule (for example "because 2+2=4"). Then, it becomes "Right because 2+2=4" or "Wrong because 2+2=4."
At the very least, I'd like to see a red asterisk or something to indicate which questions were answered inaccurately for Multiple Choice and T/F at the immediate moment upon submission.
First off, Sensei needs to have a review of quiz stage after they finish the test so they can see what questions where wrong. Then when they are going over the quiz they could click a "show explanation" button that will show the questions answers explanation.
I think it would be best applied during the actual quiz taking period, not just only grading. If a student answers the question right (or wrong) -- perhaps using ajax -- more details can be revealed right there live on-the-fly to help educate the user before proceeding to the next question.
Furthermore, add the option to show this feature on the front end either during quiz taking or after the quiz (after quiz is graded; when student reviews the test).
I agree with Scott's suggestion.
However, another option may be to allow students to have the solutions 'revealed' once a test is submitted (which would simply be a styled box underneath the question). The reality is that most students only really want to complete the test once (maybe twice) before they get the answers. The 'worked solutions' would be inputed where the questions are created. Having the ability to insert why the question is incorrect too would be a great bonus.
To echo the other comments below - this addition is a must. Not having the ability to view answers or allowing worked answers to be revealed at the end of the quiz really, really, really impacts the plug-in's utility in a major way.
