Article/Explore More Comprehension Question Delay

If a student answers an Article Comprehension question or Explore More Media question incorrectly, they won’t 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 attempt to answer the question again.


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.
