How Do I create Text Input Problem?

Text input problems are a useful tool when you want assess a student's critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and when there may be multiple ways to approach and solve a problem.

One use case for text input problems is to test a student's ability to solve complex problems or apply concepts in a real-world context. For example, a science teacher might ask a question like: A car traveling at 60 km/h accelerates uniformly to a speed of 90 km/h in 10 seconds. What is the car's acceleration?

By asking a text input question, the teacher can assess whether the student has a deeper understanding of the concepts involved in the problem, such as acceleration and velocity, and can apply them to solve a more complex problem.

Steps for creating text input problem

Go to the assessments for which you want to create sectional test questions.
Click add Questions to create a question under that section and select text input problem.
Create a question by typing in the question prompt and enter the answer in the correct text you want to provide.
