Checking answers of passed quizzes


Badge +1
Hello everyone, it's my first course in here
I was wondering how can I check the answers of the quizzes I passed, there is this quiz that I passed but I wasn't sure about the answer of one of the questions, and I don't remember what I picked (It was a multiple choice question), here is a screenshot of what it shows me when I go back to what I submitted


Is there any way I can check my answers?
Thanks

Hi @MiRaN,

I understand your point. In some courses, after taking a quiz, it'll show you some pieces of feedback about the wrong and right answers. So you'll know what you had selected. In some other courses/quizzes, you'll see absolutely nothing except for green check marks (☑) and red signs (❌).

Yours exemplifies the latter case. This Help Article explains it well: Take quizzes

After you finish and submit a quiz, you'll see your score. For some quizzes, you might also see feedback, like hints or explanations, for each question.



My suggested workaround is this:
If you've forgotten the correct answer, you can retake the quiz. Or you may want to just re-attempt that particular question. This time make sure you'll remember your selected answer. It does not have any bad effects on your final grade if you select an incorrect one while experimenting this, because the system always keeps your highest score. All the best.

@MiRaN , what I have done is to either take a screen shot of the quiz, or handwrite it with the responses you gave. This can also be a good resource to refer to in the future. My courses would tell you if you were correct. But when you retake the quiz, the questions often are mixed up so you really need to have kept the entire quiz, not just the answers you gave.
And, of course, @MiRaN @Judith @Maryam this is the way people pass courses without knowing the subject, just a little cheating game.....
Students can obviously figure this out by themselves, but to ‘advertise’ it openly.....
Everyone is allowed to take a quiz as many times as they want to. It is strongly emphasized in that Help Article, too.
In this particular thread, the person has already discovered the right answer. Why is it considered "cheating"? The system enables you to retake a quiz to eventually get the full grade. Yes, unlimited submissions may not be the ideal scenario, but it does not definitely mean that retaking a quiz is considered cheating. You can re-attempt to learn a new thing without being penalized. It is what a good formative test does in a classroom environment, too.
@Maryam
Giving thousands of people a way to get their certificates without any subject knowledge is, to my mind, not quite cricket. Of course it is a platform fault, to have this option.
I was thinking about this as a learning tool. Quizzes make good references.
In a live class, you spend time going over correct answers and understand where you misunderstood information.
I didn’t mean to suggest that this is a method to “cheat”. Finding the correct answer is about learning. It is unfortunate if anyone is only trying to pass then quizzes. I would hope they were taking the course to learn.
