Create a "Program Code" question type
The Long Answer question type is not useful for asking students to input a snippet of computer program code for an answer. The L.A. type strips out multiple spaces that a student may enter for indenting lines of program code. The response the instructor sees on his/her screen is all left-justified, which is difficult to analyze or to show to the class. A "Program Code" question type should preserve all spaces for viewing. Ideally, it should also use a monospaced font so that columns line up.
