Explain your thinking - change the prompt

Is there a way to set the “explain your thinking” prompt to say something else? I want the students to click on an MC answer and then be prompted to explain why what they chose is not an equation, but an inequality - so, “explain your thinking” doesn’t quite get to that. Many thanks!

Yup, just use the explainPrompt sink in the CL. You can read about it and see an example of it in the documentation here:

You can conditionally change the prompt as well based on choice:

explainPrompt: when MC1.isSelected(1) or MC1.isSelected(4) "That's an inequality"
when MC1.isSelected(3) "That's an expression"
otherwise "Explain your thinking."
