(C1,iii) Add Short Answer Feedback Assistant (ShortAnsFA)
The Short Answer Feedback Assistant (ShortAnsFA) provides suggested marks
and auto-generated content-related feedback for close-ended, short answer
questions for any subject and level.
As ShortAnsFA uses generative AI, its response is probabilistic in nature.
Thus, it may not be suitable for questions involving mathematical computation
and may at times be inaccurate. Teachers should review the feedback generated
before returning it to students. ShortAnsFA's capabilities will be continually
improved over time and schools can keep a lookout for the latest improvements
via the Singapore Learning Designers Circle (SgLDC) Facebook group.
Use ShortAnsFA for questions with answers which have short phrases or
clearly defined marking points.
ShortAnsFA can only be added in a Free-Response Question as part of a
File Submission is disabled when using ShortAnsFA.
Create a ShortAnsFA question
On the Lesson Editor page, click Add New below the Component
Bar, then select Quiz. Click the Pencil icon
on the right and select Teacher-Marked Quiz from the Quiz
Mode dropdown list.
From the Teacher-Marked Quiz page, select Short Answer Feedback Assistant under
Free-Response Questions from the Component Bar. The Create New Question
subpage will open.
From the Leniency dropdown list, select the intended leniency of the feedback
and marks provided by ShortAnsFA. High leniency would cause feedback generated
to be more open and diverse, with a looser interpretation of the Suggested
Answer. The default Leniency is set to Medium.
From the Response Size dropdown list, select the response size, or estimated
length of students’ response. A short response would be approximately 100
words long, a medium response would be 300 words long, and a long response
would be 500 words long. The default Response Size is set to Medium.
Specify a detailed mark scheme in the Suggested Answer:
provide as exhaustive an answer key as possible in bullet points or
separate points with line breaks
include the mark allocation for each point in the answer
key in the format [1m]
keep each point succinct, do not over-elaborate or include
Click the Up/Down arrows to set the Marks for the question.
Tag the question to the Subject/ Level/ Learning Outcome or
Content Map to increase accuracy or the response.
When you are done editing, click outside the Quiz component to save.
After students complete the Teacher-Marked Quiz, you may view the feedback
generated by ShortAnsFA. Enter the Teacher-Marked Quiz under the Monitor Assignment page
and click Teacher Comments.
