Add Open-Ended/Fill in the Blank Questions to Assessments

Lab on Demand Performance Based Testing Platform Update

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]You can now add questions to an assessment exam where the answer is text. This can be fill-in-the-blank type questions or open-ended questions. The new options for answers are 1) Text response, exact match or 2) Text response, Regex match. The second answer type uses a regular expression that has different answer possibilities and compares it to the answer the student inputs. To add these type of questions/answers to an assessment type exam:

1. On the Exam tab, click Add Question

3. From the Format dropdown, select the format for the answer:

a. Multiple Choice, Only One Answer
