How to answer - Extended Response

Extended Response

Extended response questions enable you to provide a written response with an optionally specified length. 

Question structure

Short answer questions will display:

  1. The question asked.
  2. The writing space for your response is below the question.
  3. Points allocated to the question.


Activating the writing space by via click/typing actions brings up the toolbar with formatting options, and the ability to insert images, tables, links, code snippets and equations.



As you start writing , the writing space starts expanding to fit the content. You can scroll up and down to view the question and everything that you have written so far.


Character limits

In case there is a word count, it will be shown at the bottom of the page, under the writing space. If you are going above the word count, the indicator will change to show you the number of words you are going above the limit.



There is no requirement to save anything explicitly. All your written work is automatically saved as long as you are connected to the internet.
