      Description

      The feedback dates (Show Feedback On and Show Feedback Until) need to be listed on the Date Manager, along with Open, Due, and Accept Until dates.  Perhaps, like Forums, these can only be active if the test settings are to show feedback after a set date, rather than no feedback, immediate feedback, or feedback on submission. All other tools that provide feedback do so when the instructor grades / releases the feedback. The Tests & Quizzes tool is the only one (that I am aware of) that has the automatic feedback, and I feel needs to have these dates included in the Date Manager.

      I have two reasons for this:

      1) If an instructor uses feedback after a set date, they would still need to go into the test settings to update the feedback date(s), which decreases the usefulness of Date Manager.

      2) If an instructor neglects to update the feedback date and those are set in the past, the feedback works as if Immediate Feedback was selected, potentially allowing students to change their answers mid-test. If an instructor doesn't realize that the Feedback Date would have this effect if set before the due date, they may think that setting the due & accept until dates through Date Manager is sufficient.
