Short Answer Exercise, evaluation based on interaction?
Is there a way to set the short answer widget to allow participants to go through the exercise of typing an answer, but with the qualification being having typed at least 5 words or something like that?
I'd like students to go through the exercise of typing out an answer, but don't need to evaluate the content.
Hi Ali! There's no way to set a minimum word limit on the short answer widget. You can decide which keywords will automatically mark the answer as correct by going to "setup" in the widget and typing the word into the section titled "Automatic evaluation - correct if text entered matches any of the following conditions"
If you would not like these questions to be graded at all, simply click the "x" on the right side of the automatic evaluation section to remove grading criteria.
If you do not want this section to count towards progress, you can click on "completion tracking" at the top of the widget and choose "no completion tracking". You can also choose "completed upon any interaction" if you'd like it to count towards progress without the answer having to be correct.
