Highlighting/Underlining on PDF

I am looking for a way for my students to highlight or underline where they’ve found answers in the text. For example, if I upload a reading passage with questions, how can students show me where they’ve found their answers in the text?

Thanks in advance!


Hi @cshattuck

Great question!

If you take a screenshot of the text, you can embed it into the ‘Show your working’ question type. Your students will then be able to underline/circle parts of the text to exemplify where they got their answers from.

I used used this question type for a poetry lesson so learners could identify which image was best described within a few stanzas (see below image).

I hope that helps!


This is a great workaround! I’ve been looking for a more seamless way for students to do this. Thanks! :slight_smile:
