Why we do not recommend using OnDemand for essay questions
Using OnDemand for essay questions has certain issues and accessibility restraints for students.
The OnDemand word processor has no formatting options, cut and paste is not available and students with accessibility needs are not catered for.
Word, as well as being a familiar application to the student, has a more robust workflow, from opening the app, to backups during the exam and to the final delivery of the work. It is a tried and tested workflow that we have honed over several years.
