multiple choice - Tips and feedback


I'am not sure if it is a bug. But for me it is.

1. The situation is when i create a question with multiple choice in a board game or a question set. When i create a question i want to give my student, when selecting the right answer, some extra feedback (information). So i do this with the Tips and Feedback option in the settings of the Quiz.

I select Chosen feedback and write here what i want the student to see. To be clear i don't fill in the tip text or the not chosen feedback.

When i test the Quiz the user can see a small cloud or speech bubble beside the correct answer. This will give away the correct answer. I understand it will normally just show a tip. But i didn't fill in the tip text only the chosen feedback.

2. Ideally i would like to see for my students directly if the answer is correct or not. My idea is that there will be a optional pop-up which tell if the answer correct or not and if needed gives extra information (feedback). I made a small example in one of the attachements. :)

Thank you for the feedback! Do you have a link to a MultiChoice that has the problem described in #1? I created a multichoice now, and the feedback didn't display until the user checked the answer.


I will try later today to create a page for you to acces. But the problem is not that the feedback is displayed until the user checked the answer. The feedback is in fact hidden. But the problem is that the icon of the speech bubble or cloud can show my students that the answer must be the one with that icon because its the only answer with it. I hope i explained it better now. In the attachment i put a red square around the icon/symbol which i mean.

Ok, what happens if you click that icon?

Nothing it opens a small empty space beneath the answer. See attachment.

In this way it is too easy to see the correct answer. Because it is the only answer with the icon. I think it is normally for placing the tip text. Which i didn't fill in. :)

I think there must be some white space or something in the tip text field in the authoring tool. Could you perhaps share a link to that content?

You need acces to my wordpress dashboard or just a open page with a example of the problem?

Open page :)

I made a example with question set. :)

Here is the pagelink

There is a linebreak or something in the tip for the alternative red causing the bubble to appear. We will try to improve the code so that it won't display the icon unless there are characters in the tip. You can try to delete any whitespace and linebreak in the authoring tool for the tip for red and see if it goes away.

Please leave that page available so that the developers can use it for testing the fix for this problem. And to be clear it only accidently appears on the correct answer since for some reason it thinks that the correct answer has a tip defined in the authoring tool.


Deleting any whitespace and linebreak seems to fix my problem. Strangely now i cant reproduce the problem anymore...


Well suddenly the problem is back without me changing anything at all XD. I will leave the testpage open for you guys. Would be nice if you could let me know when its fixed so i can close it again. :)

We'll let you know. Might take a few days as we're finishing up other things now. I have no idea how it could just suddenly happen again. Something must have changed somewhere. Mysterious.

I was not able to access your test page, however I suspect this is an issue concerning whitespaces/linebreaks inside the feedback text.

This has been fixed at github, and will be added to the next H5P release.

Hi everyone,

Really enjoying this tool. Is it possible to add an image to the "Tips and Feedback" instead of text? I can think of multiple use scenarios for this both in terms of pedagogy and gamification.

Many thanks

Hi Andrew,

This is a wonderful idea.  In order for your feature request to attract as much interest as possible make sure it follows the below guidelines:


  1. It is clear from every perspective how the feature will work. We recommend describing the feature with one or more user stories, for instance “As an author I want it to be possible to pick between different effects for the check answer animation so that the learners will see a variety of effects and also I can adapt the effects to my target audience(I’ll be using pink unicorns which works really well for both my target audience which are 4 year old girls and venture capitalists)”

  2. If the feature can be illustrated with images or videos it always helps

  3. Make it clear what content types this is relevant for, and or if this is a new content type

Make sure you post the feature in the Feature Request forum.
