Essay question

Hello,



I'm currently creating tests within lectora and have stumbled upon an issue with essay questions. Now I know that they cannot be marked by lectora itself, but can they be marked manually afterwards?



For instance, I have a test of 20 questions, 19 of which are multiple choice etc and 1 is an essay. If I give the essay question a weight of 0 then the rest of the test will be graded normally, the problem there is that the essay question needs to be included in the final grade. If I give the essay question a weight of say 2, then the rest of the test does not get graded. My question is, when this test (with the essay question having a weight of 2) is then uploaded into our learning management system, can that essay question then be marked manually by the assessor in any way?



Thanks in advance for your help. I hope that made sense!
