Answer a question

This article is for students

Your teacher can post 2 types of questions: short-answer or multiple-choice. For short-answer questions, you enter a response. For multiple-choice questions, you select an option. If your teacher allows, you can see your classmates’ answers after you turn in your answer.

Before you answer a question, check for instructions or attachments. A question can have attachments, such as a Google Drive item, a link, or a YouTube video.

You can view and answer the questions on the Classwork page or the Stream page.
