Yes you can.

You'll want to include a 
<hiddenline />
in the code.

There will then be a 

<input name="HWVAL_<responseid>" type="hidden" />

(For example
<customeresponse id="10">
  <hiddenline />

will generate 
<input name="HWVAL_10" type="hidden" />

You'll need associate a value to the field before the submit occurs.

For example:

document.lonhomework.HWVAL_10.value = 'something';

Should cause 'something' to get submitted against the response.

There were some examples of this in vcu I believe.
