"comments on answer sheets."

Posted by rich [rpoteat@quicklearningschool.com] on at 06:19 PM
hi.

is there a way to add a comments field to the answer sheet? this way, if a student wants to e-mail his results, he can also add comments or questions about the test.

maybe i missed something, but i can't figure it out, what i'd like is a box with say a 250 - 500 word limit.

any help would be appreciated.
thanks (again),
rich

Yes, there is a way to add a "comments" text area onto the answer sheet.

What you would need to do is edit the "answer_sheet_template.html" file that is located in your "classes" directory. On that template, add a new TEXTAREA with the pre-defined name "student_comments" ... and uTest will handle the rest.

EXAMPLE HTML TO ADD A "COMMENTS" SECTION ONTO THE "answer_sheet_template.html" PAGE:

---------
< BR >
Enter Any Additional Comments Below:
< BR >
< TEXTAREA WRAP=SOFT NAME="student_comments" COLS=30 ROWS=8 > < /TEXTAREA >
< BR >
---------

Refer to Appendix A in the uTest User's Guide for more information about customizing the uTest Answer Sheet template:
