      Description

      Would it be possible to add a word count function to the essay question-type in the Quiz module? This would be two-pronged: 1) the instructor would be able to limit the number of words that the student can use in the answer; and 2) the student would be able to click on a button in the toolbar to let him/her know how many words he has used.
