# How to use string and self correct in note

I want to have it say Which form is the equation y = -2(x+5)(x-7) and self correct…and later let the student’s know how many correct they got.

It works for correctness, but once I try to add the string that says the actual question, it stops working.

This doesn’t work:

and this works:

And the answer is…Put what I wanted to say between the quote marks in the otherwise area. That will put up the question first.

Here is the solution…
content:

when choice8.isSelected(1) “Correct!”
when choice8.isSelected(3) “Incorrect. Remember that the axis of symmetry is a vertical line that goes through the vertex.”
when choice8.isSelected(2) “Incorrect. Remember that the axis of symmetry is a vertical line that goes through the vertex.”
when choice8.isSelected(4) “Incorrect. Remember that the axis of symmetry is a vertical line that goes through the vertex.”

otherwise “Which form is the equation y = -2(x+5)(x-7)”

correct = choice8.isSelected(1)

You could also condense to 2 whens by doing this:

`... when choice8.isSelected(2) or choice8.isSelected(3) or choice8.isSelected(4) "Incorrect..."`

Or if you don’t want the feedback to display until they actually submit an answer:

`when choice8.submitted and choice8.isSelected(1) "Correct!"`
`when choice8.submitted "Incorrect..."`
`otherwise "Which form..."`
