Standard Format for Importing Short Answer Questions

To import a Short Answer question, the first line of formatting must begin with "Type: S". This is followed by the "Title" (which is optional), the question number, and the question wording.

Example: Type: S
Title: Who invented television?
5. Who is known as the "father of television"?

Respondus allows you to import only one correct answer per question, but it does permit you to enter multiple forms of that answer.

Example: Type: S
Title: Who invented television?
5. Who is known as the "father of television"?
a. Zworykin
b. Vladimir Zworykin
c. Vladimir Kosma Zworykin

Answers can also be placed at the end of the file, using a format similar to multiple choice questions. The only difference is that you can enter multiple forms of an answer by repeating the question number.

Example: Answers:
1. A
2. C
3. B
