There is an average of 6 characters per word, this includes one space.

For example, if you want to limit an answer to 100 words you would estimate the character count as 600 characters.

  • Also, note that spaces are counted as characters in Foundant GLM. Be sure to account for spaces when creating questions that have character limits on forms.
