Create a student audio response question on a Test or Quiz

From Sakai Help

This explains the process of adding a student audio response question (formerly called "audio recording" question) to any type of assessment. This question type presents users with a question that they must answer audibly. A recording utility opens and allows users to record the answer using a microphone.
