Short answer quiz questions
I'd like to include quiz questions in my videos that require full sentence (or even multi-sentence) answers. The announcement last fall of the new fill-in-the blank question type said: "Fill in the Blanks — Added a new question type in quizzes, allowing users to add fill in the blanks or short answer questions." But when I try to add those questions to my videos, there is only space for single word answers. The students can write more words, but those words scroll off the screen so they can't see what they are writing or re-read their answer before submitting.
Is there way, either formally or as some sort of creative workaround, to allow students more space to write?
Ideally it would also be nice to make these questions manually graded - right now the system seems to require me to include a list of correct answers. I think I can work around that by not showing the 'failing' grade to the students and then assigning grades myself later, but I haven't come up with a workaround to allow longer answers, and I'm hoping someone else might have.
For context: I recently started a Panopto trial and am seriously considering purchasing a Pro account for my classes this fall. I've been impressed with the viewer structure and many of the features Panopto offers, but if it's really true that there is no way to ask short answer questions then that is probably a deal-breaker for me. I hate to walk away from what seems like a great program, but the ability to ask students to reflect on what they are watching seems sufficiently fundamental that I'm really hoping it's actually possible and I just haven't figured it out yet. I'd love to hear any suggestions from those of you with more experience. Thanks!
