I'd like to set a word limit for essay type questions in Test. Is this possible to do?
Currently there is not a way to set a word limit for essay type of question. But there is an additional type of question that could help in your case. You can check the "Short Answer" type of question, it is similar to the essay type. It's not limited to the length of the response but to the possible numbers of rows for the answer (with a maximum of 6 rows).
Please check this Help link for Essay Type question and this one for the Short Answer Type.
