What are required questions?
Teachers have the ability to define which questions on a formative must be answered for students to be able to submit their work, by setting required questions. Required questions are also a way to prevent students from navigating to the next section of a formative (if sections were added to it) before completing all questions displayed.
There is no limit to the amount of required questions teachers can add to a formative.
Note: Once you designate a question as "Required", subsequent questions will default to required as well, however you will have the option to toggle it off.
Set a required question:
Click the blue + sign and choose the question type
Proceed to create the question
Toggle on the "Required" button below the question
Once a question has been set as a required question, students will not be able to submit their formative without providing a response.
If there are sections on the formative, students will not be able to navigate forward to the next section until the required question(s) in the section has been answered.
From the student's view, there will be 3 indicators that required questions are included in the formative:
The question will have a red label "Required"
A warning will appear over the "Submit" button stating "Please answer all required questions."
The "Submit" button will be grayed out and non-functional until all required questions have been answered
