I am trying to create a quiz in which the person has to answer with a long paragraph. This paragraph must match the one in the answer in order to get the score. Is there any way to have this done? Long answer questions? Have the system match the exact paragraph with the one submitted? Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Christine,

The essay and short answer questions aren't set up to check what the user wrote vs. the built in answer. I don't believe there is a question type within Quizmaker that would allow you to accomplish this... perhaps you could share a bit more about your goal and what you're looking to have the user do? I could see how if they have to type that much text in, a simple missing period or something could mark them completely wrong. But perhaps that's the point?

Hopefully the community is able to weigh in and share some of their expertise here!
