Brad M recently suggested another way to elect an interactive short-answer
question, so the Runestone problems have moved to that.
The "signal" is to put a "response" element after a "statement" and before any
solutions (hint, answer, solution). It may always be an empty element, but we
plan to use it to carry attributes that might affect the behavior of a text box.
Note this will only happen when your project is hosted on a Runestone server,
since it is pointless otherwise.
In some recent trials, reading questions were automatically short-answer. And
for about a couple weeks now there was another scheme in place, which is now
abandonded. Tom J will need to add about 120 "response" elements to AATA, and I
need to add about 108 to FCLA. Tedious, yes, but it will be a more flexible
scheme in the long-run.
