Question in Howtos
A couple of different ways of showing the correct answer to a single part as soon as the student submits an answer. One way allows the student to change their answer, while the other locks the part.
A third part includes a "reveal answers to this part" button, which allows the student to choose to reveal the answer to the part.
Think very carefully before using this: by revealing the answer, you are removing the opportunity for the student to later on realise they've got that step wrong, as a consequence of some further work. It's often possible to use adaptive marking to use the student's answer in place of the correct answer in later parts.
