    Description

      When displaying the feedback to students, the correct answer field is appending a full stop. Whilst this may be aesthetically pleasing to some, it can be confusing when punctuation is critical in a response. It also creates nonsensical feedback when a response already containes a full stop, ie. the correct answer field will have two.

      eg.
      Student Answer: Smith, J. (1998). Ecology today. Nature, 8(1), 25-45.
      Moodle Response: Smith, J. (1998). Ecology today. Nature, 8(1), 25-45..

      eg2.
      The correct answer is: ABC News Online. (2008, November 4). ABC News Outline. Retrieved November 4, 2008, from http://www.abc.net.au/news/etc.
      The full stop at the end of a web address is incorrect. A student who heeded this feedback, then applied it in a referencing activity would be marked incorrect.
