Hi Lee,

No, no expectation to write more, just because we're typing.

If you were on campus, writing your answers in the standard UWA exam booklets, then (most students) would answer a 10-mark question on 2-3 
pages of the booklet, producing reasonable answers in that space.  And, because of the stresses during an exam, students usually write 
large, 5 words per line.  Correct answers, achieving full marks, don't require long flowing essays.
