I would remove the old bits. The same advice and more is now shown in the tables.

Stanislav Duris 4 years, 3 months ago
Thank you Vicky. I've added the tables now. I'm not sure whether I should keep the original advice for parts vii) and viii) or whether I should replace them completely. I've kept them there for now.

I really like the set up of this question and I think it will make the student think quite hard about properties of numbers. I've reworded some of the advice to make it clearer. I also think that, for consistency, parts vii) and viii) in the advice should have a table of values for $3 \leq x\leq3$. It makes your conclusion look a bit stronger if you have checked a range of positive and negative numbers and can show a trend.

Error in variable testing condition
There's an error in the condition you specified in the Variable testing tab. Variable values can't be generated until it's fixed.

For each combination of answer and choice, specify the number of marks to add or subtract when the student picks it.
For each combination of answer and choice, write 1 if the student should tick it, or 0 if they should leave it unticked.

Test that the marking algorithm works
Check that the marking algorithm works with different sets of variables and student answers using the interface below.
Create unit tests to save expected results and to document how the algorithm should work.
There's an error which means the marking algorithm can't run:
Question variables
These variables are available within the marking algorithm.

When you need to change the way this part works beyond the available options, you can write JavaScript code to be executed at the times described below.
To account for errors made by the student in earlier calculations, replace question variables with answers to earlier parts.
In order to create a variable replacement, you must define at least one variable and one other part.
Variable  Answer to use  Must be answered?  

The variable replacements you've chosen will cause the following variables to be regenerated each time the student submits an answer to this part:
These variables have some random elements, which means they're not guaranteed to have the same value each time the student submits an answer. You should define new variables to store the random elements, so that they remain the same each time this part is marked.
This part can't be reached by the student.
Add a "next part" reference to this part from another part.
None of the parts which can lead to this part are reachable either.
