Short Text

Short Text questions are auto-scored constructed responses. They are used to grade single sentence or paragraph responses according to a single rubric.

Students are presented with a text, image or other context and asked to respond according to a specific prompt, such as "what is the main idea in this passage?"

The automated scoring computes the "distance" from student's response and a collection of acceptable responses to determine it correctness, and generates notes to give the student feedback about how their response does or doesn't answer the prompt.
