Specific options

Correct answers

In this section you can define correct numeric range for the solution. If you wish the solution to be a single numeric value, just type the same value in the minimum and maximum fields.


  • Expected number of decimals:this option will either cut the student's answer (if he has entered more decimals than the requested) or it will add decimals up to the maximum requested (if the student has entered less than the requested).
  • Input width: the width of the answer field.
  • Restrict number of characters to input width: This sets the max allowed candidate input to the same length as the input width.

    Make sure this is larger or equal to the correct answer. If it is shorter, correct answer will not be possible.
