You may prepare you essay using your class notes, books and your word processing program. Enter the exam and paste in your response. I have set the exam/essay to maximum time (12 hours), this should give you plenty of time to edit your work. You will only be able to enter the exam/essay once. A possible solution – or key points for your essay – will be displayed in the grade book. The essay is not auto-graded.
