Question types: Essay (auto-grade)
The "Essay (auto-grade)" question type awards a provisional grade as soon as the student submits an essay. The provisional grade is based on the number of words, sentences and target phrases that are present in the essay.
In addition, this question type allows the teacher to specify "grade bands" which can be used to create a non-linear grading scheme.
At any time, the teacher can override the automatically generated grade by giving a manual grade and feedback as in the standard "Essay" question type.
