History and Feedback

- The multiplication questions I got in part a) were enormous and I doubt that someone would even try to do that in their head, opting instead for a calculator. If they do use a calculator, I don't think they will gain the understanding from this question that it is designed to instil.
- I see you have set the marks for each question in a) as 0.25/question. I think this might be a little low and it looks a little strange when you get all the questions correct to only get 1.75 marks for doing 7 questions, regardless of the difficulty of the actual questions.
- Part b statement does not require a colon. I think it should be a full stop instead.
- I think the tables in the advice are excellent, and a really good idea.
- In the advice, you do not need the 4th word.
- In part b) of the advice, I think I would capitalise the second "Symbol", even though it might not be correct, it will look better. Maybe full stop each of the Symbol lines to make it correct.
- Just a suggestion, but you could create some sort of number line to show your answer in part b)ii).
- Make sure to full stop after i), ii) and iii) in part b) advice.

Which part is it that only works for you sometimes?
In (b), on the final line, you have two equations in-line. I'm not sure why, as they could be merged but, as a result, \displaystyle not applied to the second.
In the advice in part (a), I think I would put the information and examples into a table, with columns for the sign of the first and second number, a column for the resulting sign, and an example. This would help the student to pick out patterns.
"press the symbol S⇔D" seems too specific, as my calculator certainly doesn't have that button.
When describing the mixed number, I think this needs to be broken down further. Start with e.g. 8 = 8 x 1 = 8 x 8/8 = 64/8 to explain where the first term comes from.
Rather than the horizontal lines in the advice it would be better to give the answers to each part and bring up the rules as they occur. For example in part (c) the rules that you describe are relevant for the second and third gap respectively. You could add sub-numbering i),ii),iii) to each expression to help with referencing.

Error in variable testing condition
There's an error in the condition you specified in the Variable testing tab. Variable values can't be generated until it's fixed.
No parts have been defined in this question.

Test that the marking algorithm works
Check that the marking algorithm works with different sets of variables and student answers using the interface below.
Create unit tests to save expected results and to document how the algorithm should work.
There's an error which means the marking algorithm can't run:
Click on a note's name to show or hide it. Only shown notes will be included when you create a unit test.
No unit tests have been defined. Enter an answer above, select one or more notes, and click the "Create a unit test" button.
The following tests check that the question is behaving as desired.
This test has not been run yet This test produces the expected output This test does not produce the expected output
This test is not currently producing the expected result. Fix the marking algorithm to produce the expected results detailed below or, if this test is out of date, update the test to accept the current values.
One or more notes in this test are no longer defined. If these notes are no longer needed, you should delete this test.

This test has not yet been run.
In order to create a variable replacement, you must define at least one variable and one other part.
|Variable||Answer to use||Must be answered?|
The variable replacements you've chosen will cause the following variables to be regenerated each time the student submits an answer to this part:
These variables have some random elements, which means they're not guaranteed to have the same value each time the student submits an answer. You should define new variables to store the random elements, so that they remain the same each time this part is marked.
