Automatic evaluation. The question is answered by entering a mathematical expression.
Math Entry is similar to Text entry and Numeric entry, and allows both the author and candidate to build sophisticated mathematical expressions using an intuitive palette of mathematical symbols. Math Entry can be combined with other question types using the Composite question type.
In this section you can add multiple correct answers by using the palette, latex, numbers or text.
- Input width: this is the width of the box where the student can enter his answer.
Allow unique responses only - This applies to questions with more than one question element. The purpose is to avoid awarding too many marks when a correct answer is repeated in the question elements.
Example: Four different correct answers are defined in each of four math entry elements in the question. This is to make the question flexible, so the learners can choose which math eny element to input the answers in. If the learner inputs the same answer in all elements, the result is all correct.
With this option enabled, the duplicate answers will not count as a correct answer more than once, the duplicates are ignored.
