Written answer

The Answer fields must be filled in by the student with the answer, writing what they think is correct. We have two possibilities when adding this type of field: closed questions and open questions. The closed questions will have a series of correct answers that we have to input when creating the field, and can be autocorrected. The open questions do not have a specified correct answer, the teacher will have to correct the question once the student finishes the worksheet.


Once an Answer field has been added, its options screen will appear. We will have to input the correct answer or answers. Several answers can be set to adapt to different ways of answering by the students. For example, if the question is "10 / 4" we could input the answers as "2.5", "2,5", "two and a half" and "two point five" and all of them would be counted as valid when autocorrecting the card. 

To add more options to the correct answer we must click the + button. The editor will display the field filled in with the first of the correct answers.

If we don't enter an answer for a field, it will be interpreted as an open question. Before saving the worksheet, the editor will alert us that we have fields with no answer, to confirm that we really want to ask open questions and we have not forgotten to input the correct answers.
