prevent shortanswer autograding


Is there a way to create short answer questions in embedded cloze type activity that are not marked automatically?

At the moment I am using the following, 



{1:SHORTANSWER:~=*~________________________________________________________} (the line is there to make the text entry box longer)

but some teachers of the course are unhappy that students can enter anything and be marked correct.

I have tried the following, but not happy with the way it tells student their answer is incorrect.


Ideally what I want is a one line essay response.
