HTML, TeX, and images in answers for calculated multichoice please!
What is the status of this? I am running Moodle 2.2.1 and am trying to create a set of calculated Algebra multiple choice questions. I would like to be able to use TeX in my multiple choice options as well as the question itself. TeX is working properly in standard MC questions but not the Calculated type.
Is there a patch I could install or a hidden "enable" option? Thanks so much!
I just went ahead and upgraded to 2.2.5 and still no luck.
This is related to some very old issues, and I am wondering if a change in strategy might not help. Turn off the TeX filter and add the MathJax reference to AdditionalHtml Header and see if that helps
Great idea! I forgot all about the JS implementation of TeX! I have used that before when I tried writing an iPhone app once and had some luck with it. I just gave it a try and it worked for the most part, but I'll have to figure-out why it's doing some strange justification when displaying the MC options. I think it is a workable solution, though.
I just tested it on the iPad, and it worked great there. (All of our students have iPads this year, which is why I'm trying so hard to get all of this kind of stuff working well and as automated (and randomly generated) as possible.
There is an ancient Tracker item wherein Pierre explains the issue with MC and the TeX filter that would likely help. Look for my name I suppose as I think I likely filed it.
Once you have added MathJax to your Additional Html you can easily add jsxgraph and geogebra and that makes for handy little option. While I am at it, note that the folks at Bayreuthe have also come up with sketchometry http://sketchometry.org/ which you might find of interest with your iPads
Thanks Marc for handling this forum issue.
I should have time this fall to come back to the handling of images or math equation in calculated multichoice.
Your last comments open new options that I should test (on my wife Ipad ) .
This workaround is available to Moodle Admins, but otherwise any users with only Teacher access would otherwise be out of luck.
