When creating a Multi-Short Answer Question (MSA), what is "Columns" referring to?


What is the difference between the possible selections of 20, 40 or 60?

    @Tara.U.403 I think that refers to the number of characters, or the width of the text entry box. It doesn't appear to show correctly if there's only one row, but if you change rows to 2 and preview each column choice, you will see the width increases for each one.

    Hi Jennifer,

    Thank you! I figured it was characters, but was hard pressed to see that without your suggestion of changing the number of rows.

    I agree that it is in reference to the width of the answer box (only evident with more than 1 row), as to how it is displayed while taking the quiz.

    Much appreciated!
