Online assessment improvements

MathsPreviewAndFeedbackLink:

New ‘maths preview’ and feedback in assessments

Our online assessments have been improved.

Maths Preview

As you type an answer to a maths question in an online assessment, the new ‘maths preview’ will immediately display what you have typed in mathematical notation. Previously, this was only available after submitting your answer - now it is updated as you type. In addition, the new preview also indicates when your answer is not a valid mathematical expression, allowing you to tidy it up before submitting.

Give us feedback

There is now a feedback link at the bottom of every page within an online assessment so that it is easier for you to contact us with feedback about a particular assessment question. Look out for the ‘Provide feedback on this page’ links - these were previously only available on non-assessment pages.
