Is it possible to have more than one feedback box for assignments having multiple short answer questions so the feedback is more specific to the response for a single box not the entiore assignment?

Mike, are you doing this via BrainHoney, Buzz, or straight through the API?

So, there is a way to have feedback per short answer. This would need to be configured in the Customization XML. Check out <questionfeedbacktypes>.

Example:

<questionfeedbacktypes>
     <questionfeedbacktype display="Correct answer" type="shortanswerspecific" group="sas_correct" condition="answercorrect=true" />
     <questionfeedbacktype display="Incorrect or partially correct answer" type="shortanswerspecific" group="sas_incorrect" condition="answercorrect=false" />
</questionfeedbacktypes>

If I were to place the above code into my Customization XML, it would enable two new feedback options per short answer option. Specifically, it would have a feedback box if the student answered the question correctly or incorrectly. 

When editing the question, if you select "Edit Feedback" you would see these options. Notice that there are multiple feedback boxes per short answer.

I hope this helps.
