Hi Christian

I noticed that this when answering this question, the computed answers are no longer being used and it keeps 0 as the correct response.

Best wishes,

This is a strange place to have a thread, but if you reading this, Mike, you may want to take a look at this question:

Mike Smet1 year, 4 months ago

Hello Christian,

I really enjoy the possibility of using data from an external file (e.g. csv or Excel) in Numbas: I was wondering whether it would be possible to randomise between differerent files. I have a group of about 300 students and want to let them run a regression and let them answer some questions about the regression results. Is it possible to randomise between for example 50 different csv files (in order to avoid copy/paste behaviour among students)?

Kind regards,

Mike

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.

The correct answer is an equation. Use the accuracy tab to generate variable values satisfying this equation so it can be marked accurately.

Checking accuracy

Define the range of points over which the student's answer will be compared with the correct answer, and the method used to compare them.

Variable value generators

Give expressions which produce values for each of the variables in the expected answer. Leave blank to pick a random value from the range defined above, following the inferred type of the variable.

String restrictions

For each choice, specify the number of marks to add or subtract when the student picks it.

For each choice, write 1 if the student should tick it, or 0 if they should leave it unticked.

You must set a maximum number of marks in order to use this marking method.

For each combination of answer and choice, specify the number of marks to add or subtract when the student picks it.

For each combination of answer and choice, write 1 if the student should tick it, or 0 if they should leave it unticked.

Both choices and answers must be defined for this part.

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:

Question variables

These variables are available within the marking algorithm.

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.

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.

This part can't be reached by the student.
