Article/Explore More Comprehension Question Delay

Article and Explore More comprehension questions are automatically graded by Studies Weekly Online and students receive immediate feedback while answering them. Students have unlimited chances to select the correct response, but they are incentivized with coins to correctly answer each question in as few attempts as possible.

If a student answers an Article comprehension question or Explore More Media question incorrectly, they will not be able to select a different response or move on to the next question for a short amount of time. The delay gives the student an opportunity to go back to the article to find the correct answer or read the question again before they make another attempt.

Students are required to answer all questions before moving on to the the next task.


Teachers can only view this feature if they are logged in as a student. For information on how to log in as a student see the How to Navigate the People Page article.
