This one's for the creative gurus out there. One of my colleagues wants to 
give 'warmups'. These questions are simply to get the students to read and 
login before the class.

He is not interested in a series of MC questions, but rather an essay 
question or two. On the other hand, he only wants to grade on the 
submission of a response, not on the quality of a response.
This score should show up in the GRDS area. And we're not really 
interested in using the Spreadsheet unless this is the only way to do it.


* Create an essay response that then pops up a second part radiobutton 
with an obvious answer once the student has submitted an answer.

* Is there any way to create it such that the problem grades itself? Can a 
script in the problem STORE a value? (I figure this is dangerous and not 
allowed, but I thought I'd ask)

Any other ideas?
