  • How to create mathematical equation, scientific notation, etc.?
  • We use MathJax to display high quality math equation in browser. We use LaTeX syntax in constructing the equation, as well as scientific notation. Please view the details documentation here.

    Example: Input LaTeX syntax
    \( x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a} \)
    Example: Output equation
    \( x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a} \)
  • Auto calculatation of the question's point function
    1. By default, the system will assign 100 points averagely for each question
    2. If some of the questions have points that are manually assigned, then the remainder will be distribute evenly to the other questions.
    3. However, if the manually assigned point exceed 100 points, then the system will ignore all the manually assigned points and apply the default rule (1.)
    4. In order to fully customize the points, ALL questions need to be assigned with points manually
      e.g.: if you wish to have a 200-points test, then you need to declare all question's point manually
    5. ** Point can be any number within 2 decimal places
    6. ** Possible offset will be added to fulfil the "100" score
      e.g.: If 3 questions are created, then 33.34, 33.33 and 33.33 will be automatically assigned respectively instead of 33.3333... for each question
