The numerical input interaction is a special text entry interaction for numerical input. The solution expected from the learner is a number. You can set absolute and relative tolerances and define a solution area.

A licence is required to use this question type.

Tab Question/Answer

FunctionDescription
Text entryEnter your question and text in the input field. Any number of gaps can be created. A detailed description of how to create a gap can be found in the help section Text entry interaction.
Precision
  • Exact: Only the accurate entry of the exact solution will be assessed with the specified points.
  • Absolute: Determine the possible absolute deviation to the correct solution. The upward and downward deviation can be separately defined. The limits are automatically computed and displayed. You can specify whether the limits are included in the tolerance range, and thus if they can be entered as a solution to the gap.
  • Relative: Determine the possible relative deviation to the correct solution. The percentage upward and downward deviation can be separately defined. The limits are automatically computed and displayed. You can specify whether the limits are included in the tolerance range, and thus if they can be entered as a solution to the gap.
