When you launch an activity from a Product page, you will see a page similar to the page below.


How to use the Activity pages

  • First, Select your product.
  • Select one activity.
  • Try and complete the activity.
  • Select 'Submit' to check your answers and record your score in your markbook.
  • Symbols next to your answers show your correct and incorrect answers.
  • If you want to try the activity again, select 'Try again'.

You can do most activities more than once. However, most activities have a maximum number of attempts. This means you will only be able to do the activity a certain number of times before your final score is recorded in the markbook.

Once you have reached the maximum number of attempts, you can select 'Show answers' to see the correct answers for the activity.


The symbol with the red triangle shows where you answered incorrectly. You can hover your cursor over the symbol to see what your answer was, e.g. 'on' on the image above. 

The symbol with the red circle shows where you didn't complete an answer.

You can continue to try the activity again and check your answers. However, no new scores for this activity will be recorded in the markbook.

Remember, if you are studying this Richmond course in a school, college or university, your teacher will also be able to see the scores in your markbook.


Some activities have attachments with information that may help you to complete the activity. Use the button in the top right hand corner to view attachments.

These activities are for your personal answers and ideas. There are no right or wrong answers, so they are not marked. No score will appear in your markbook for notepad activities.
