## New user interface

**user interface**, much more intuitive than in previous versions. With this new interface, you will be able to use Wiris Quizzes' artificial intelligence to filter the input and validation options, based on the correct answer set. Then when you evaluate the additional properties of the question, the Studio options are much clearer and easier to apply.

## Answer types

**Equation type**and there is no need to distinguish between answers with and without units or currencies. Just enable the corresponding units and prefixes in

*Input options*>

*Input syntax*, and Wiris Quizzes will handle the rest. In addition, there is a new answer type named

**Graphic**that allows students to graph their answers.

**graphical answer**, see its dedicated page.

In previous versions of Wiris Quizzes, when you selected the answer type there were three options (shown in the screenshot): **general** (for generic mathematical expressions), **quantity** (for answers with units and currencies), and **text** (for pure text answers without mathematical content).

In the sections that follow, we've described the new Equation Type options available in Wiris Quizzes 4.

## Initial content

For instance, imagine you want to create a question which answer is , and you want the answer written as a fraction. As some students would tend to answer in decimal format, you can persuade them by defining the answer's format in the *Initial content* editor.

Besides, it's also possible to import information from the initial content to the correct answer or vice-versa. Thus, you can build the corresponding mathematical expression once, and it will appear automatically on the correct answer, ready to be edited.

## Show relevant options

*Show all options*.

For instance, imagine you want to create a question involving mathematical constants such as . After you have established the correct answer, the *Input options* and the *Validation options* sections will have the two choices mentioned:

## Input options

**Input options**that concentrates the choice of input method and the expected input by the student. It's divided into three parts:

**Compound answer**(to ask for more than one answer in the same question),

**Answer input method**(to select the type of editor with which the student will answer and the presence or not of auxiliary editors) and

**Input syntax**(to define which syntax elements are correctly recognized).

In general, these sections work similarly as in previous versions. You just have to manually activate those units and prefixes that you want to enable as discussed above. If you prefer it, you can select *All* and the whole available units and prefixes will be activated.

In previous versions, when you selected the method and the expected input of the student, it had to be defined between the *Correct answer* and *Validation* tabs.

## Validation options

**Validation options**, which sets the criteria for comparing the correct answer with the student's one, taking into account its format. It's divided into four parts:

**Comparison with student answer**(with the same goal as in previous versions, but without entering specific intervals of acceptance),

**Numbers**(to define the tolerance and accuracy with which the system will accept the student's response),

**Simplification**(with the same goal as the old additional properties section) and

**Units of measure**(to impose if units of measure have to coincide).

This section has no significant changes to its purpose or organization, beyond the two **new validation options** presented below. In previous versions, there were two main sections beyond the aforementioned allowed entry: comparison with the student response (to define which values are accepted as correct) and additional properties (to describe which formats are allowed).

### Symbolic answer

**Symbolic answer**and is intended for those occasions when we want the student response to be a combination of operations, fractions, roots and functions, and no solution is allowed in decimal format.

In previous versions, this option was included in additional properties such as *has fraction form*, *has polynomial form*,… From now on, it will be unified in a single option that will encompass many more possibilities.

### Exact answer

**Exact answer**and will be what is called zero tolerance. This is an option that didn't exist in previous versions and will only accept answers that are exactly the same as the correct one. If the correct answer is , for example, an answer of

**1.414**is not acceptable.
