Essay  #

The candidate answers the essay question type by typing an essay. It is the most common choice for written assignments. Write your question text on the top of the text editor: “Replace with question text":

In this question type you will find an additional option on the right hand side menu: Bands and Criteria:

This option enable graders mark within certain criterias or cathegories, and reward marks using thresholds/bands per category. For more information, see Inspera Assessment Knowledge Base

The candidate will write his/her answer in the box, and by clicking inside the box a diffent menu will appear on the right side:

"Prompt": Change the text in the editor. Default text is “Fill in your answer here...”.

"Size": The author may define maximum lines allowed in the answer, default the text box will extend automatically as the student progress. When the function "Expand automatically" is switched on, the question text and any PDF-attachments will move out of view as the candidate types. If it is important that the question text and/or the PDF-attachment is visible at all times, you should uncheck this box.

"Option": The author can choose to only allow the candidates to use plain text (will not allow the candidate to use tables, formulas etc.), or to limit the maximum amount of words.

The essay has a rich text format, such as fonts, lists, undo function and full-screen editing. It will also save the candidates answer automatically every few seconds to make sure that no work is lost if the candidate navigates to another question, battery or power outage, or similar situations. The essay assignment is evaluated manually.

Text Area #

This question type provides the candidate with a blank text area, but unlike the Essay question type there are no rich text formatting, fullscreen editing or word counter. The text area question type allows the author to add several question elements to the same question.

Programming  #

This question type is answered by writing programming code in a predefined programming language. Here too, the question text can contain a PDF-document or an illustration. Write the question text above the programming editor. 

By clicking on the editor, you get a menu on the right side with two alternatives: “Prompt” lets you change the instruction text “Fill in your answer here”. In “Options” you can define which programming language to be used for the answer. You can also choose to allow help and line numbers. The grader manually assesses the programming question type. Remember to define a maximum mark score.

Math working #

Use the math working question type to let the candidate answer with mathematical calculations. The candidate picks mathematical expressions from a dropdown menu. 

In the menu to the right, you can also add score marks and include an illustration or a PDF document.

Upload assignment  - for hand in assignments only #

The “Upload assignment” is for home exams, or any open exam (performed without the use of a lockdown browser). This question type lets the candidate upload a file from their own computer.
