Authors sometimes find that accurately assessing their subject matter requires the use of short-answer or essay questions. We strongly encourage preparing these types of questions for in-class testing, assignments, or discussion posts, rather than using them for quizzing in our digital learning platform.
However, instructors are welcome to include short-answer questions in digital assessments, with the foreknowledge that additional work may be required to manually grade the results. Our Active Learning platform provides specialized grading tools to save time and effort with manual grading.
Note: When writing short-answer questions, please prepare feedback that can be shared with adopters.
