Create or edit model answers

Compare student answers to model answers and discuss them in class.

Model answers are embedded into each open-ended question in Stile, and teachers can modify these or create their own. Teach Mode and Quick review allows teachers to quickly compare student answers to model answers, and it also allows them to review answers with students in class. Currently, you cannot release model answers to students. They are available as a tool to help you review student work or foster discussion.
