      Description

      The Essay help string that appears in the question-type chooser (pluginname_help | qtype_essay) could be improved.

      Currently it reads:

      {blockquote}
      In response to a question (that may include an image) the respondent writes an answer of a paragraph or two. The essay question will not be assigned a grade until it has been reviewed by a teacher and manually graded.{blockquote}

      Other systems have a separate question type called something like "File response". See, for example, https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=280281, but people do not realise that the Moodle Essay type can be used in the same way.

      I'll put a suggestion into en_fix, but I thought it would be easier to discuss it with Helen Foster and [~maryc] here first.

      I can't do a suggestion now. I have to go and get a bus.
