Visual, interactive problems that are easy to grade
Students answer questions by drawing with digital ink. It is very direct and interactively simple. Creating such a question consists of drawing or capturing an image, adding a problem text and specifying the color and style of the digital ink.
Such questions are graded using a simple visual tool that presents and grades many student answers simultaneously so that the instructor can see the diversity of student answers.
Drag and Drop
Students answer questions by dragging placing visual objects. Grading is done by the location of the objects. It helps if the problem provides a context (map, sentence, graph, etc.) in which to place their objects so that student answers will have consistent locations.
Typing in Context
Students answer by typing should text. The type in spaces are in the context of the problem making them easier to understand.
