Wiris Quizzes release notes - Wiris Quizzes services 4.3 - September 2021

Introducing Auxiliary Text to Graph Questions

The auxiliary text feature will also be available on graph questions, and students will be able to explain their reasoning behind the building of a graph or area. You can see more details regarding it here.

Import complex algorithms to CalcMe

With the introduction of the new CalcMe algorithm line feature, we will automatically detect any algorithm in Wiris CAS for you and convert it to a CalcMe algorithm. Thus, you can have a better experience further editing it using our fully functional code editor. You can see more details regarding it here.

Import between initial content and correct answer

Repetitions are over. With the new import feature, you can save time, automatically sending information from the initial content to the correct answer area or vice-versa. You can see more details regarding it here.

Introduction of advanced mathematics in Wiris Quizzes demo

You can have a sneak-peek into Wiris Quizzes and experience its power for free. We’ve included advanced mathematics features to our demo, which allows you to grasp the full complexity of Wiris Quizzes without committing to a full subscription. Try it here now.

Customize plotter size in WQ question statement plotters

The size of your plotter graphs can be customized in the question's statement. You can make your plotters more visible for students using a very straightforward notation. You can see more details regarding it here.

Fill Color Customization for Graph Points

It's possible to customize the fill colour of graph points on CalcMe. Make specific points of your graph stand out by colouring them with multiple colour options.

Ready only after creating a text field

This is especially for all System Administrators who manually integrate Wiris Quizzes. Now you’ll be able to not allow for trial and error and make sure the student's first recorded answer is the final one. You’ll be able to disable the students’ answer field as you wish programmatically.

For LMS integrations of Wiris Quizzes

Blackboard LMS
Moodle LMS
Canvas LMS
Brightspace LMS

Bugs related to Wiris Quizzes LMS integrations have been fixed. Some errors related to question types have been solved, which will enable you to use Wiris Quizzes in a faster and smoother way.

Related to specific question types:

  • Cloze questions errors related to adding multiple-choice questions have been fixed.
  • The matching question type whose possible answer contains a repeated value (due to using random parameters) has been fixed. It no longer displays the repeated value twice instead of one anymore.
  • An extra line break is no longer added to every option when creating multiple-choice questions.

For everyone using the tool in Catalan or Spanish:

  • For those who don’t feel so familiar with English, the string above the auxiliary input component has now been translated to Catalan and Spanish.

Regarding error messages:

  • An error message no longer appears when a teacher clicks re-grade to a quiz that had not been graded before.

Other fixes related to all WQ questions:

  • Questions with the auxiliary input component enabled no longer lose it when migrating to WQ4. You no longer have to select the option again manually.
  • Questions whose statements involve equations in LaTeX that contain underscores no longer crash on WQ4.
  • Questions no longer display the statement not filtered, and the input boxes are broken when their answer contains decimal numbers without the leading 0 (that is, .12345).
  • Strokes within a student’s answer are no longer lost with WQ4.

For Wiris Quizzes Studio

Wiris Quizzes Studio

Bugs related to WirisQuizzes Studio have now been fixed.

  • When MathType appears in a popup, it now preserves edited formulas. Moreover, since the MathType popup no longer opens as blank, it is possible to edit a pre-existing formula.
  • Some menus in CalcMe, especially drop-down panels, no longer appear misplaced when opened in Wiris Quizzes Studio.
  • Dropdowns of Graph within the correct answer activity of a graphical answer question can now be opened when browsing Firefox.
  • Wiris Quizzes Studio now properly preserves the changing styles of plotted objects using Graph in the question’s statement.
  • Defining the parameter answer in an algorithm box in CalcMe is now working correctly.
  • Compound questions do not slow down the load of the Input Options activity anymore.

For Question Grading

Bugs related to our Question Grading Engine have now been fixed.

  • CalcMe does not ignore the line after ending the multiline comment.
  • When importing the correct answer in a question with a grading function with a random parameter, the evaluation of the correct answer no longer fails.
  • Graphical Answer questions regarding functions with asymptotes no longer break in some corner cases.
  • Wiris Quizzes Studio correctly grades functions with random parameters. The evaluation no longer fails when you import the correct answer in a question with a grading function and where the correct answer uses random parameters.
  • Questions regarding multi-letter units (such as cm, ml, Wb, Bq, atm, floz, etc.) within compound answers with text fields no longer cause wrong corrections of correct answers in WQ4.
  • No errors occur when grading a compound question with multiple answers, thus leading to correct grading results.
