CBT Question Types

All CBT question widgets may have "Delayed Feedback" and all except ORDERTEXT may have immediate feedback. The delayed feedback is stored in the ASYM_WID_summaryFeedback[x][12] array of the widget, while the immediate feedback is in ASYM_WID_ansArray[x][12]. Beyond that, what is displayed in the CBT Question Editor and whether any other content is embedded in the widget depends on the type of question. See the following table:
