The Text Slide app is useful in getting short text answers from students for a fill-in-the-blank type of question. This tool is best suited for open response questions. Examples as follows:
By default, the answer is limited to 140 characters. You may select for the response to be provided up to 500 characters.
If you do not want to allow changes to be done in the answer after submission, deactivate the 'Allow answer changes'.
Do not confuse this with the Lock - with Text password. The key difference is that the Text Slide App is a free-form response with no validation of answer.
