  2. Answers: Select from one of the three in the dropdown menu:

    Exact answer: Enter the exact answer with the exact error margin allowed. For example, if the answer were 2.12 with a 0.01 margin of error, the quiz accepts any response between 2.11 and 2.13 (inclusively). By default, the margin is 0.

    Answer in the Range: Enter the range of answers that can be accepted as correct, such as answers between 8 and 10.

    Answer with Precision: Enter the answer with the precision number. The precision number is how many significant figures are expected in the answer. Precision answers can be negative numbers and should not include trailing zeroes. Student responses will be marked as correct if they omit the trailing zeroes, as long as all preceding digits are correct.

    Add question feedback if desired (green box for correct; red box for incorrect). Extra Answers boxes can be deleted if not used.

Formula Question

This question type can be used to randomize variables / answers to each student

This example is of the simplest that can be done in Canvas

  1. Question: Type in the question text and add any instructions for student, e.g., “What percent of 200 is 58?” Answering correctly all students would have same answer. Setting up as a formula question with “range” of variables generates different question “set” to each student. However, using variables generates unique question a student. “What percent of [x] is [y]?" Enclosing in variables in brackets opens Variable Definition option: There are three input areas to complete. Variable Definitions; Formula Definition; and Generate Possible Solutions.
  2. Answers:
    • Variable Definitions: type in the “variables” range for each; e.g., for [x], enter min of 100 and max of 200; for [y] enter min of 5 and max of 60. Example Value shows possible values used in a question.
    • Formula Definition: type in the formula used to compute; y/x*100, click Save
    • Generate Possible Solutions: type in a number of “solution” sets to be generated; e.g., 20; enter an optional error margin and then click Generate.
    • You will see the values Canvas will use and the Final Answer for each x and y variable. Make sure to click Update Question to save the question!
