There are five methods used to define a custom question. Each S3 method should correspond to the type = TYPE supplied to the question.

  • question_ui_initialize.TYPE(question, value, ...)

    • Determines how the question is initially displayed to the users. This should return a shiny UI object that can be displayed using shiny::renderUI. For example, in the case of question_ui_initialize.radio, it returns a shiny::radioButtons object. This method will be re-executed if the question is attempted again.

  • question_ui_completed.TYPE(question, ...)

    • Determines how the question is displayed after a submission. Just like question_ui_initialize, this method should return an shiny UI object that can be displayed using shiny::renderUI.

  • question_is_valid.TYPE(question, value, ...)

    • This method should return a boolean that determines if the input answer is valid. Depending on the value, this function enables and disables the submission button.

  • question_is_correct.TYPE(question, value, ...)

  • question_ui_try_again <- function(question, value, ...)

    • Determines how the question is displayed to the users while the "Try again" screen is displayed. Usually this function will disable inputs to the question, i.e. prevent the student from changing the answer options. Similar to question_ui_initialize, this should should return a shiny UI object that can be displayed using shiny::renderUI.
