Recommended settings in feedbackr

Multiple Choice question

Show results immediately: disable, if the results should remain “secret” until the resolution. Activate this setting if you feel that there is a “competition” among students with the aim that their favorite subject wins.

multiple choice: Depending on the type of question, a multiple choice may make sense.

Free text question

Show answers:

  • never: The students never see the topics that have been entered. Regarding transparency, this adjustment is rather not recommended.
  • once stopped: the students see all the suggested topics of the others as soon as the voting is stopped.
  • immediately: the suggested topics become directly visible to all students. This is especially useful in combination with the setting “Answer Ranking”.

Multiple answers: enable this setting if you want your students to submit more than one suggested topic.

Answer Ranking: only effective in combination with “Show answers: immediately”. Thereby Students control the prioritization of answers / topics.
