What question types are there?

Text question

Students answer in writing.  A text question is appropriate for open-ended, short answers, fill-ins, and essay questions. The answer can include text, numbers, and drawings (see figure 1).  
When grading text questions, it’s possible to comment and provide feedback directly in the student’s answer with the help of annotations.

Multiple choice question

Students are presented with multiple answer choices and select all answer choices that apply (see figure 3).  This question type is only corrected automatically when used with score based grading if the student gets the answer completely correct or completely incorrect.  If the student gets the answer partially correct, it is up to the teacher to go in and manually enter the score.
