What are Features and Simple Features?

Learnosity Features are used to enhance your assessments; they can appear in Items alongside Questions, or they can appear within single Questions. Features are added using the Question Editor, in the same way that Questions are added.

Adding Standalone Features to Items

Standalone Features can be added to Items. This means that the Feature will be available while the learner is accessing the Item (and all Questions within). When the learner advances to the next Item, the Feature will be removed.

To add a standalone Feature to an Item, Authors click the "Features" tab in the Question Editor.

Adding Simple Features to Questions

Simple Features differ slightly from standalone Features in that they can be embedded directly inside a Question; they are added using the Rich Text Toolbar, so they can appear in any Rich Text field. This means that the Features are loaded only when that specific Question is open. When the learner advances to the next Question, the Feature will be removed. 

To add a simple feature, click on the Simple Features icon in the rich text toolbar.
