During a session of Symphony Math, students may see the following message when they attempt to exit a Task Group:
This penalty was put into place because students were leaving a Task Group in the middle of tasks to avoid being penalized for incorrect solutions. For example, if they solved a task incorrectly, they simply exited to the Game Board, then re-entered the task group. This clever strategy allowed students to move through the program much more quickly than we intended, because our branching engine never recorded their errors.
As a result, we added the feature above that discourages students leaving in the middle of a task. Please know that this penalty is only enforced AFTER the student makes an error or receives a hint. If the student simply sees a new task, but doesn't check any solution, they are free to exit without penalty.
