draft available soon! watch it on arxiv.org 



dear PED,


AQ1
AQ11. page2, superscript 5 is actually superscript 3 and 4 combined. no sure if you want to remove 5 and replace it as 3,4.
if agreed, will need to change superscript 6 to renumber down as 5.


AQ12. page3, after figure8 that is a word "foster", i recommend removing the word "foster".


AQ13: page4,
"correct answers our multiple-choice questions for"
replace to
"correct answers to our multiple-choice questions for"


AQ14:
options 5 (a) to (e).
replace to
5 options (a) to (e).

AQ15:
The survey results add to the existing
understanding of a need to design assessment
for learning through an input field
with customized feedback (figure 9) for
optimum cognitive loading. We postulate
that the act of thinking and deciding on a
measurement to key into the input field is
not only making the students’ thinking visible,
but allows self-assessment of learning,
which is not achievable using observable
hints and answers alone.

these text should be in normal font instead of italics as it is the author's paragraph and not part of the student's feedback.

AQ2
for simple reading of the rules of (table 1).
replace to
for simple reading of the rules (table 1).
the reason is the table1 is not "of", but to refer to table1 for the data of results.
