In a Text Match question, the participant types in a single word, or a few words to indicate their answer. You define right or wrong words or phrases in advance by entering a list of acceptable answers. The grading logic can also allow scoring based on the presence or absence of keywords or key phrases and check for mis-spellings. You can also use this question type to gather information, without scoring it.
