Completing the Short Answer Step

The Short Answer step asks the student to write a text response to a question. Students then assess their own response against a model. If they decide their response needs revision, they can rewrite it.

The Short Answer step helps develop comprehension skills and reminds students to read for meaning. It also provides the student with a change to compose her or his own written response.

​Students earn points for both writing and revising responses. 

To complete the Short Answer step:

  1. Read the question.
  2. Write a text response to the question in the text field.
  3. Click Next.
    A set of possible correct answers is displayed below your response.
    The page asks Is this answer correct?
  4. Select either Yes or No, try again in response to the question. 
  5. Click Next.
  6. If you selected No, try again, revise your answer and click Next again.
