An open response or short answer writing prompt typically asks a student to respond to one key idea with 2-4 examples and short analysis from the text.
Open response or short answer questions often show up on state standardized tests for short reading sections. They do not require students to complete a full essay on the question at the end of the reading, but they do expect students to craft a solid topic sentence and provide 2-4 relevant examples from the text with some analysis of how each example relates to the prompt. These kinds of questions can usually be answered in 1-2 short paragraphs.
