Is there anyway to add it such that Essay types apper in Column?
It would then allow us to have multiple open-ended questions in one H5P content type and show them all in the scroll. We would be VERY, VERY grateful.

Look what ticket we created just yesterday ... You can track the progress there.
Fri, 03/09/2018 - 17:56
So, does this mean we might see essay added to column soon? thanks much.
Fri, 03/09/2018 - 18:43
That's a yes!
Fri, 03/09/2018 - 19:30
not to be pushy, but do you know what that day might be?
thanks much for taking the time to respond.
Fri, 03/09/2018 - 21:22
I cannot pinpoint it, but "within the next four weeks" might be at least as good as the weather forecast.
Mon, 05/28/2018 - 01:30
Any hope on Essay coming to Column soon? thanks.
Fri, 06/01/2018 - 02:15
As soon as priorities allow someone to review and approve my updated code for Essay ...

Would that hold true for the Question Set too? Will we be able to add the Essay type to a Question Set by July?
What does "Implement the Question type contract" mean?
Fri, 06/08/2018 - 15:04
Yes, it's the same for Question Set. But I cannot give you any exact dates.
H5P as a framework so far has only one contract. It's a contract for Question type contents. If your code offers all the functionality that's described there, it will be fit to be used in compound content types such as Column or Question Set which can then rely on a function that returns the score, a function that resets the content type, etc.

Did this ever happen? Really looking forward to using this one.
Wed, 11/14/2018 - 09:16
It's about to happen still, and you can track progress in our ticket management system. As you will notice, the major blocker is that the pending update of H5P.Essay has not been code reviewed yet. You can track progress for that as well.
Wed, 11/14/2018 - 15:07
thank you for the update, we are really keen on getting essay in column and question set. I did notice that when i looked at the essay it says it is now "ready for question set" ... is there anyway to get that part live? thanks in advance.
Wed, 11/14/2018 - 15:16
Essay is ready, but it has not yet been released. Of course, you can grab the current code of H5P.Column and H5P.Essay to build your own temporary fork.
Wed, 11/14/2018 - 16:03
We have yet to create alternative forks and like you my engineers have a list of tasks with code switching being a cost we can't do at the moment. So, i will continue to remain hopeful that you all will update essay and bring into question set and column soon.
Question: If we did fork it does that mean it would be ready for just question set or question set and column? And i am assuming forking and integrating into question set and column is a big lift or?
thanks again, and anything you can do to get them to just embed essay would be so much appreciated.
Wed, 11/14/2018 - 18:33
The code of H5P Essay implements the complete question type contract, so it's suitable for H5P.Column and H5P.QuestionSet. Making it available in the latter is just a matter of seconds, because you'll only have to update the library selector inside semantics.json to use the correct version of H5P.Essay.
Please note though, that in case something has to be changed in the code of one of the libraries that you're forking, you'd have to put your system into development mode briefly, because otherwise H5P will not allow to update local libraries that have the same version number as the one that is about to be installed.
Fri, 06/08/2018 - 15:27
Super quick reply, thank you.

Tue, 09/04/2018 - 10:48
Any news on the release date?
Wed, 09/05/2018 - 09:16
Sorry, no. You may have already spotted the development ticket for this request that you can use to track progress. It is linked to a missing code review of the updated version of H5P Essay, which has not been done yet due to other priorities. You can track its progress as well.
Mon, 12/03/2018 - 22:10
Oliver, any new news on essay being integrated into these two types? Question set would be first need, and then essay. It looked so close in March but then seems to have stalled. Thanks, and hope your conference is going great.
Sat, 09/22/2018 - 22:00
Does essay content type still not generate xAPI statements for correct answers? If it gets integrated into Question Set, would it then? Thank you!
Sun, 09/23/2018 - 03:20
Essay sent out xAPI statements right from the start. This has nothing to do with integration with other content types or with a host system's gradebook. The latter will be possible too, but there's still a code review to be done. You can track the progress in our ticket system.
Mon, 12/03/2018 - 23:00
The status is still similar, but the review is scheduled for the next coding sprint, so it should be done really soon. Fingers crossed.
Sun, 12/16/2018 - 02:30
Oliver, just checking in to see if you think this might be out before the end of the year? Thanks as always for your feedback.
Sun, 12/16/2018 - 02:35
Unfortunately, I don't think so.
Tue, 02/19/2019 - 14:23
Just began working with Moodle and H5P for a non-profit and this feature (in particular essay in column) is exactly what I need to get one of my first projects up and running. Is there any new info on when we can expect to see this released?
Thanks for the great work!
Tue, 02/19/2019 - 14:26
Any idea when essay in column will be up and running?
Wed, 02/20/2019 - 07:34
Same status as what Oliver mentioned above. There are still some coding that needs to finished and some issues to be ironed out. After those steps a code review and a series of testing are needed before the new feature is released.
Thu, 02/21/2019 - 03:41
To the best of my knowledge, it's only the code review that's missing.
Thu, 02/21/2019 - 06:03
I think you are right. Thanks!
Thu, 02/21/2019 - 06:07
Not to burst your bubble, but it has been at this point with the idea that we are almost there for a year and am not sure if there is any new movement. WIth that said, if it happens we would be quite excited as well.
Thu, 02/21/2019 - 06:10
But we were also told that it was almost ready a year ago and there has beeen no meaningful movement. I think they are hoping and i would be stoked if that happens ... but i am not holding my breadth.
Thu, 02/21/2019 - 07:12
What can I say? There's nothing I could do.
You can, of course, always use the source code to use the update right away. https://github.com/otacke/h5p-essay
Thu, 02/21/2019 - 14:36
Thank you for your quick response always. Don't get me wrong, I am grateful for all the H5P work. I was simply communicating that "almost ready" is the state of this for over a year ... still grateful for whatever gets done. ty.
