Friendly greetings to developers.
Well, I guess I have to explain why this fix is necessary.
Most question types have a General feedback and a Combined feedback. "General feedback is shown to the student after they have completed the question" (tooltip explanation), i.e. the General feedback is shown to the student after:
- a correct response, or
- a partially correct response (in Adaptive mode), or
- an incorrect response... on the last try!
For example, if the Penalty for each incorrect try is set to 33.333%, the student has 3 tries. If the student's 3 tries are incorrect, the General feedback is shown... only after the third try!
This Combined feedback/General feedback is correctly implemented in all question types, except for the Formulas question Part's combined feedback/general feedback.
There is no reason why the behaviour of the Formulas question Part's combined feedback/general feedback should not be the same as that of the other question types. In fact, the present behaviour is faulty and quite inconvenient, and has to be fixed, preferably
sometime in the next future.
