Thank you for the feedback, I agree on second reading of the question, it isn't the best approach to ask this in this way at this point in the question. I was trying to test that the student can identify rate of change just be reading the equation but I think it is slightly pointless without any calculus now that you point it out. 

I'm just going to remove that part for now and then I'll add developing a question on recogising ate of change to my to do list.

What's the idea with part e? Without calculus, how do I answer it? I think the choices and answers are the wrong way round - you have two options for "no acceleration". I think looking at graphs is more appropriate at this level. Either way, it should be a separate question.

Thank you for the feedback, I have acted on this by splitting the question in half and adding a part e) onto the end of this question. I have also moved the axis to make the graph easier to understand.

You need to shift the $x$ axis up so it joins the $y$ axis at $(0,0)$. The graph looks very unusual with the $x$ axis where it is and it also makes it hard to see that some of the accelerations are negative. I also think that it would look better to have speed on one graph and acceleration on another. You could still ask the student to idenitfy which graph is which.

Make sure $\mathrm{metres}$ is spelt the English way.

I think $3$ questions on finding the distance is excessive - one where the area under the graph is a rectangle and another where it is not would suffice.

Currently the final part of the question just requires the student to add lots of numbers together. A better question would be to give them the distance travelled over the time periods they haven't yet calculated and ask them to calculate the average speed over the full time period. 

I actually think this could become two questions, one that looks at using a speed-time graph to find distance and one that looks at the relationship between speed and acceleration, as it is a long question assessing many aspects of the topic. It could also be good to encourage the student to think about what the speed-time graph will look like if the acceleration is not constant.

This variable is an HTML node. HTML nodes can not be relied upon to work correctly when resuming a session - for example, attached event callbacks will be lost, and mathematical notation will likely also break.

If this causes problems, try to create HTML nodes where you use them in content areas, instead of storing them in variables.

Describe what this variable represents, and list any assumptions made about its value.

This variable doesn't seem to be used anywhere.

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:

Run this script the built-in script.

This script runs after the built-in script.

To account for errors made by the student in earlier calculations, replace question variables with answers to earlier parts.

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.
