Would it be possible to be able to sort through student answers when students are asked to write in a "free response" answer?
In a related manner, would it be possible to somehow be able to mark correct only the answers that were actually submitted? So, when using the "mark correct?" button to give points to everybody, it would do it only to those who actually submitted.
I would like this for my course of 1000+ students, to use the free response feature as a "survey". I would incentivize students taking the survey by making it worth a few points, but only want students who actually wrote something in to get points. (And I don't want to have to give pts to everybody one by one, that would just be too time-consuming and difficult wrist-wise if you see what I mean.)
