Checking a Long Answer Question

One of the more powerful features of the new Question object is the facility to check and automatically score questions which require longer text answers than the usual text input questions. This tutorial takes you through the process of setting up and scoring even the most complex example of such a question without any programming.

Keeping Custom Score

Although Opus tracks a wide range of scoring variables automatically you will sometimes want to use a custom score. This is particularly useful for games and simulations. This tutorial shows you how to assign and display custom scoring, without the need for complicated programming.

This tutorial is suitable for all versions of Opus and is supported in HTML5 output too.
