Adding and Clearing Answers

Our system supports multiple answer types that can be answered in assessments. In order to answer a question, you can select or type in the applicable response depending on the answer type. All selectable answers are saved automatically and composed answers can be manually saved by selecting the checkmark in an open answer text box. Furthermore, pre-populated or manually provided answers can be cleared from an assessment before it is sent back to the publisher. 

Please Note: Attached files and answer comments can be cleared from questions as well if applicable. 

Optionally, you can assign questions or sections to your team members for answers. Click here to learn more about assigning questions to your team.
