1. Essay question

On essay questions, write the question in the text field and then enter points. You can limit the maximum length if you want. You do this by specifying the number of words or characters the students can write. Using character limitation, it can be good to know that an A4 page corresponds to about 4500 characters. If you do not give any restriction, students can write as much as they want.

In connection with the essay question type, it is possible to choose the correct spelling, if desired, in the languages ​​Swedish, English, German, French, Dutch and Finnish. The punctuation function means that the student receives support with spelling in connection with, for example, a longer text being written.

In the editor where you write your question you can also add pictures, sounds and videos - see the icons for picture and video. Sound is preferably added as an external file by selecting "file" in the froala-editor which is used to write questions.

Lastly, enter the number of points that you think the question is worth. It is also possible to choose an evaluation matrix instead with associated assessment areas and criteria. When you have finished your question, click on "Save and add a question".
