Castle Learning offers many options for teachers to review, pre-test, and assess their students with an ever growing database of questions. These questions range in type and levels and include answers, hints, and reasons to help students learn as they go.
Extended Reply Questions are crucial for students to fully synthesize their lessons on a higher-level. These questions go beyond choosing an answer and require students to write critically and answer long form questions.
Varying question types is key for student growth in all subject areas. Extended reply questions help students develop arguments and fully explain their response. These are often seen as short-form essay answers. The open-ended nature of the question or prompt allows students to reach conclusions and display their knowledge and mastery on the subject.
Developing a well-crafted extended reply answer is a skill in itself. Teachers need to understand they will need to model how to write these types of responses. While they require more time to complete and grade for the teacher, they give a more in-depth understanding of the student’s proficiency on the subject.
The option of multiple question types, including Extended Reply Questions, allows Castle Learning users to construct assessments and assignments that challenge students on many levels, nurturing a greater understanding of the materials.
