Any answer

Sometimes, you want to provide feedback on failed answers in short answer questions. The way to do this is to add a last answer and set it to catch Any answer in Validation options > Comparison with student answer.

Ensure that this is the last Answer in the list, set Grade: None, and write the desired Feedback.

Note that you have to put something in the field Correct answer; anything, but not empty. We recommend you use * because it's easy to get it at a glance. Conversely, beware the * symbol is not enough; you must select Any answer inside.
