Show or Hide Previous Answers on Assignments

You can show or hide your students' previous answers on the assignment. Together with correct/incorrect marks, this helps your students avoid repeating mistakes they made in previous submissions.

If enabled, your students see a Previous Answers link in the question heading that the student can click to see all of her previous responses.
