Course Description

Calculated questions offer a way to create numerical questions with individualized, variable answers by using wildcards or variables (e.g., {x} or {y}) that are replaced by distributed, randomized values when the quiz is taken.

For example, if you want each student to see a differently valued "Calculate the area of a rectangle" problem, you can create a question with two wildcards (i.e. {base}, {height}) and put in the "Correct Answer Formula=" input field {base} * {height} ( * being the multiplication sign ). AsULearn will then base scoring of each student's answer for the question on the values he or she received when taking the quiz. Essentially any mathematical functions or operators supported by the PHP computer language can be used in the formulae for correct answers.
