I have seen other software that allows students to receive a hints for questions. This would be an awesome addition to the test/quiz feature or test feature. This way if a student has multiple attempts on an assignment, they can receive a hint for questions before they reattempt the assignment. It would be even better if we could assign point deductions for using these hints.
I have seen some programs that allow multiple hints and with each hint used more points are lost towards the question. Each hint is designed to be more and more detailed. This would allow my students who often get "stuck" to have help while doing work independently or without the teacher present.
In the hints section I would like the option to insert videos, example problems, or text.
