4: Configure Feedback

Configure Feedback: Now that we have our question and semantic answer, let's set up our feedback. For detailed information and feedback strategies, click here.  Ideally, your teacher avatar will provide feedback for each student input. One student input turn is demarcated with a "." at the end of the text. 

There are 6 different types of feedback rules explained here. For starters, it might be best to only use "CO" or total coverage for each turn. It is important to consider all types of student input for each turn. For example, some students might type "I don't know." as their first input. Given our semantic answer, this would likely result in a CO score of .0 -- So we should have a feedback trigger for either CO = .0 or CO < .1. To do this, click on the "CO" button at the bottom of the page. 

Then select "1" for the turn, and "less than" for the relation. Select ".1" for the value, and "teacher" for the avatar. The "Feedback from avatar" is what your teacher avatar will speak whenever a student provides input that has less than a ".1" score for total coverage on turn 1. 

It is good to have your feedback indicate whether or not the student's input is correct, near correct, or incorrect. For coverage scores less than .1, it might be safe to assume that the student input is incorrect, or at least marginally correct. So let's provide some encouragement to the student as well as a hint by typing: I know you can do this. What does the first amendment have to do with self expression? into the "feedback" column.
