Response Formats

This article outlines the data structure of the different response formats that all the types of Learnosity Questions will return when submitting responses to the Questions API, with examples of their usage.

Warning: response formats are subject to change

Response formats are not guaranteed to remain static over time, as they represent "under the hood" functionality of Learnosity. However, we provide examples of the formats and an explanation of how they work in order to give client developers as much information as possible. We recommend that you do not write tightly integrated code that relies on the response formats remaining the same over time.

    Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
    Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
    And summer's lease hath all too short a date;
    Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
    And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
    And every fair from fair sometime declines,
    By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd;
    But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
    Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st;
    Nor shall death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
    When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st:
    So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
    So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.</p>",
