Which symbols are suitable to indicate that something is "verified" or simply correct? As far as i know, a (green) tick is the obvious choice. An alternative is a thumbs up-icon which seems to be widely understood.
In short, these are the popular ways to show correctness afaik:
- green check mark
- thumbs up
- green borders around a input field
- writing out words like "correct", "ok" etc.
What are alternative ways to show, that some "stuff" is correct? Notice that i don't want to indicate that some progress has been made.
I'm about to build a UI where i need to indicate for two distinct things, that they are correct. But i don't want to use the same kind of symbol for these different functionalities. Maybe there are different ways to do it, not icon based?!
To be more specific, i want to give feedback after a user solved a question via typing text in a textfield. There are no UI elements being enabled or disabled by the actions of the user. I just wan't to to inform the user if his answer was correct or not.
Problem: The question itself asked can be verified or not. These are the two distinct kinds of correctness i'am talking about.
More general advice how to handle this is also appreciated.
