Can anyone tell me if there is a way to get BB to grade a multiple fill-in-the-blank question for me?
Is there a way around this problem? Thanks! MHH
Multiple Fill in the Blank questions are designed around having a particular answer in each of the blanks, as in "A helium atom has ___ protons, __ neutrons, and __ electrons", or "EPA stands for ___ ___ ___". As you've seen, they don't allow for multiple answers that are given in any order.
Sadly, the prior response remains true. Blackboard has not added a multiple short answer question type, despite numerous situations in which such questions are dramatically better than the poor substitutes available in Blackboard. Why? Enquiring minds want to know.
If that's something you're interested in seeing as a new question type, it's worthwhile to submit a suggestion/enhancement request using the form at http://www.blackboard.com/Contact-Us/Feedback/Suggest-Product-Enhancements/For-Learn.aspx
