View Freeform text answers in LMS

Feb 28, 2023

I have a need for the instructors to be able to see (although not grade) student's answers for freeform questions.  The learning activity is writing sentences based on prompts.  The student then sees a sample and rates themselves.  However the instructors, while not assigning a grade to the student for this activity, would like to see what the students types.  I am using Blackboard (original recipe) not Ultra.  I have tried following the directions here, but this test file is not giving me student answers.  Under Learner response, in Blackboard it lists N/A.

Hi, I have been trying to do this myself and the only way I have found is to go to the slides tab and add a survey question (Essay). This will give you a text field. Then add a results slide and link it to the essay slide. Publish has to be set to Completed/Incomplete and it needs to be Scorm 2004.

Hi Nadine, 

I'm glad to see that the community has already responded to your inquiry. Just to add to Brian's response, here's a helpful article on adding Results Slides to Storyline 3 projects:
