What is GeoGebra
GeoGebra is an open source dynamic matematics software which ties together geometry, algebra and calculations.
Perspectives in GeoGebra
Depending on the mathematics you want to use GeoGebra for, you can select different Perspectives:
How to use GeoGebra as a question type
To use GeoGebra as a question type in Inspera Assessment you must upload a GeoGebra-file (ggb-file). The file that you upload must be saved locally in your device. This allows you to e.g. decide which perspectives the candidates can use.
For example, if you are going to have a spreadsheet question only, upload a ggb-file with just the Spreadsheet perspective:
You can also add more information in your ggb-file before you upload it. E.g.: If you want your candidates to do a "One Variable Analysis", you can add this in the ggb-file before uploading it. In addition, you can add numbers and other information such as text etc. to the spreadsheet.
The question will look like this in Inspera Assessment:
There is also a possibility to customize the toolbar in each perspective. You can do this if you want a toolbar that contains the commands that the candidates will use only. This is also something that you must do before uploading the ggb-file into Inspera Assessment.
Remember to preview the question. You may edit your file to get a better layout (see Example 2).
Examples of questions with GeoGebra in Inspera Assessment
Below you will find two examples of GeoGebra questions in Inspera Assessment. You can find more question examples in this Inspiration GeoGebra demotest.
Example 1: Probability
This example shows a ggb-file which is uploaded in the Probability perspective.
In the file, we have selected binomial distribution instead of normal distribution (which is the first alternative in GeoGebra).
In this way, you can pre-select which distribution the candidates will see/use. Note that they still can change the distribution type themselves.
Example 2: Equation set - graphics
This ggb-file consists of Graphing- and Geometry perspective.
If you want a wider Geometry perspective, drag the margin towards Graphing perspective in your ggb-file. Save and upload your file again.
You can also adjust the ratio of the axes in the Geometry perspective. This must also be done in advance.
