Brainko supports Open Question and Essay question types.
When you add an essay item, students can submit their answer by typing their essay in the text box, or by taking a picture with their phone by clicking on the image icon to attach any image.
When students submit their essays, you can see these by opening the Answers tab and clicking on the relevant question number in the results table.
You can then fill out the assessment form you created, and add comments.
When grading an essay, you can click the "Copy student answer" button to copy the student essay images into the "Teacher comments" box.
You can then click on an image and click the "draw" icon to annotate it and add comments or markings on top of it.
Use the toolbar to select annotation tools, and click the checkmark button when you're done.
Similarly to Essay questions, you can add Assessment items where students do not submit any answers, but rather you can use this item to submit personalized assessment for each student.
You can use this to submit online assessment for a paper exam, or semester assessment, etc.
