By default, answer format tips help your students know what kind of answer is expected. If needed, you can hide answer format tips for your assignments.
Tolerance
By default, answers within ±2% of the answer key are considered to be correct. For example, if the answer is 3, then 2.94, 3.06, and any value in between are all accepted as correct responses.
You can set the required tolerance for your numerical questions.
Precision
By default, the numerical precision of your students' answers is not considered. For example, if the answer is 3, then 3.0 is also accepted as a correct response.
You can set the required precision for your numerical questions.
AnswerDependent Questions
Answerdependent questions are multipart numerical questions that let your students provide numerical data or estimates and then perform calculations based on the provided data.
