Release answers and feedback

Releasing answers sends a notification to the students that your marks and feedback are available for them to see.

In normal (non-assessed) Lessons, any feedback that you write will be available to the student immediately. Releasing the answers sends the student a notification and allows them to see the right and wrong marks for each question, as well as the model answers. Questions with automatic feedback and answers are available to the student immediately after submitting the work.

For Assessments, the student can only see feedback and answers once you release them.

Note: Make sure that the Lesson is not hidden from students. Releasing the answers and releasing the whole Lesson are two different actions! Learn about hiding and releasing Lessons here.

What is visible to the student and when

The table below breaks down the differences between normal Lessons and Assessments, and what the students can see as their Lesson moves through different states of progress. When you look at an individual student's worksheet, keep in mind that what you see is not indicative of exactly what they see. You can see right and wrong marks on their worksheet before those answers are released to them.
