Checkpoint description

Describe what's changed since the last checkpoint.

Julia Goedecke 3 weeks, 1 day ago

Gave some feedback: Ready to use

Julia Goedecke 3 weeks, 1 day ago

Saved a checkpoint:

Now cleaned up  marking algorithms, and added the feature that the system at the beginning can't be submitted if some entries are invalid or empty.

Restore this checkpoint

Julia Goedecke 3 weeks, 1 day ago

Saved a checkpoint:

Checkpoint before cleaning up the custom marking algorithms, to make it clearer what i have changed.

Restore this checkpoint

Julia Goedecke 4 weeks, 1 day ago

Saved a checkpoint:

Changed the coding of "swap rows" so that if no entry is given, it takes the original row again in that place.

Restore this checkpoint

Julia Goedecke 4 weeks, 1 day ago

Used new "bareMatrices" flag to display the augmented systems as they should be.

Julia Goedecke 4 weeks, 1 day ago

Gave some feedback: Needs to be tested

Julia Goedecke 4 weeks, 1 day ago

Changed visibility of options so that only options that are possible within given matrix size are visible. Made it possible to leave blanks in the multiplication of rows if they are to stay the same.

Issue happens with "real life" examples but the following contrived one is the smallest I can find

The "some problems" is that when you calculate with 1/3s, you sometimes get \(0\pi\) rather than \(0\).

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.

No parts have been defined in this question.

Select a part to edit.

Ask the student a question, and give any hints about how they should answer this part.

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


Advanced settings


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.

Base marking algorithm

                
Custom marking algorithm


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:

Unit tests

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 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.

When you need to change the way this part works beyond the available options, you can write JavaScript code to be executed at the times described below.

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.
