When you are editing an assignment, you can use the fill in the blank tool to give your students the ability to type in a correct answer or have an answer box available that you insert for them.
(Click on the links to jump down to the correct section)
- Choose the fill-in-the-blank tool.
- Draw a box on the slide.
- Click "+ add acceptable answer" (if wanted).
- Add a point value (if wanted).
PLEASE NOTE the following:
- You do not need to add an acceptable answer. You can use the fill in the blank tool as a way to insert an answer box for students. This way, students won't need to insert a text box themselves.
- Fill in the blank is not case sensitive. This means that "yes" and "YES" will both be counted as correct if your acceptable answer is "Yes."
The screenshots below show examples of what you see when students answer a fill in the blank question.
The first screenshot shows what it looks like when you click into a student's slide and student has a correct and incorrect response. If the answer is correct, it is green. If the answer is incorrect, it is red.
The second screenshot shows what you will see from the teacher's View Work tab.
PLEASE NOTE: You can use fill in the blank and decide whether or not you want students to see if their response was correct/incorrect and to see what their total score is.
To let students see their score, turn the Grades feature under the Assign tab on. See this article for more information on the Grades feature and how to turn it on/off.
Please also note that students can change their answer - regardless of whether the Grades feature is turned on or not.
Check out this article written for students about whether they can see their grades and to see what it looks like for students if you have the Grades feature turned on.
