Open question is a question that cannot be answered with “yes” or “no” but requires an exhaustive answer.
Learners are given the opportunity to type an answer into a text field. This question type must be graded manually.
Open questions ask the learners to think and reflect.
They allow students to share more information, including feelings, attitudes and understanding of the issue. This provides the course authors with better access to the respondents' true knowledge of the subject.
