I work in a dental school and we frequently use free text blocks in other learning tools as there's often no fixed answers or different terminologies that would report back as incorrect when they weren't. An example I'm currently working on is 'Describe this radiograph' - we don't want the student to give a textbook answer but use the space to organise their thoughts before we provide the sample answer. We don't need the tutor to see the answers given as it's purely for self-directed learning to encourage the students to be thorough.
