== Single question ==
 
Let's start by considering the simple case of a single question. We will see how the text of the question can be placed in the Main question, or in a Part if we treat the question as a subquestion. Better yet, we will show how to use a placeholder.
 
=== Question text in the Main question ===
 
The most basic form of a '''Formulas question''' is having the text of the question in the '''Question text''' field of the '''Main question''' section. To create such a simple '''Formulas question''', you must complete at least all the required fields, that is, the five below marked with ! and *:
 
 
 
<pre style="font-size:113%;">
 
General
 
  Question name!
 
Main question
 
  Question text!
 
Part 1
 
  Part's mark*
 
  Answer*
 
  Grading criteria*
 
</pre>
 
 
 
<div style="border:1px solid #bce8f1;border-radius:4px;padding: 0px 15px 0px; margin:20px 0 25px;">
 
<div style="font-family:Lucida Sans Unicode;font-size:113%;color:#6c336d;margin:10px 0 10px;> Example</div>
 
 
 
Create your first '''Formulas question''' as follows:
 
 
 
<pre style="font-size:113%;">
 
General
 
  Question name!      My first Formulas question
 
Main question
 
  Question text!      What is 3 + 4?
 
Part 1
 
  Part's mark*        1
 
  Answer*              7
 
  Grading criteria*    Absolute error == 0
 
</pre>
 
 
 
Congratulations, you just created your first '''Formulas question'''! The '''Editing a formulas question''' page should look like this:
 
 
 
[[File:FormulasTutorialQuestion01a.png|560px|thumb|center]]
 
 
 
and the Formulas question should look like this:
 
 
 
[[File:FormulasTutorialQuestion01b.png|560px]]
 
</div>
 
 
 
=== Question text in a Part ===
 
For a single question, it makes almost no difference if the question text is put in the '''Main question''' or in a '''Part'''.
 
 
 
<div style="border:1px solid #bce8f1;border-radius:4px;padding: 0px 15px 0px; margin:20px 0 25px;">
 
<div style="font-family:Lucida Sans Unicode;font-size:113%;color:#6c336d;margin:10px 0 10px;> Example</div>
 
 
 
Modify the previous example and place the text of the question this time in the '''Part's text''' field of '''Part 1''':
 
 
 
<pre style="font-size:113%;">
 
General
 
  Question name!      Question text in Part 1
 
Main question
 
  Question text!      A question on the addition
 
Part 1
 
  Part's mark*        1
 
  Answer*              7
 
  Grading criteria*    Absolute errror == 0
 
  Part's text          What is 3 + 4?
 
</pre>
 
 
 
The '''Formulas question''' should look like this:
 
 
 
[[File:FormulasTutorialQuestion01c.png|560px]]
 
 
 
Note that some text has to appear in the '''Question text''' field of the '''Main question''' because it is a required field.
 
 
 
=== Using a placeholder===
 
Placeholders are used to insert the text of subquestions in the '''Main question'''. We will see later that they are very convenient.
 
 
 
<div style="background-color:#d3ffd3;
 
            border:1px solid #abdaac;
 
            border-radius:4px;
 
            color:#4f691a;
 
            padding:5px 15px 10px;
 
            margin: 0;
 
            ">
 
Note that each subquestion being assigned to a part, we will use interchangeably the terms subquestion and part.
 
</div>
 
 
 
<div style="border:1px solid #bce8f1;border-radius:4px;padding: 0px 15px 0px; margin:20px 0 25px;">
 
<div style="font-family:Lucida Sans Unicode;font-size:113%;color:#6c336d;margin:10px 0 10px;> Example</div>
 
 
 
Modify the previous example and use a placeholder to insert the text of the part in the main question:
 
 
 
<pre style="font-size:113%;">
 
General
 
  Question name!      Using a placeholder
 
Main question
 
  Question text!      A question on the addition
 
                      {#01}
 
Part 1
 
  Part's mark*        1
 
  Answer*              7
 
  Grading criteria*    Absolute error == 0
 
  Placeholder name    #01
 
  Part's text          What is 3 + 4?
 
</pre>
 
 
 
The '''Formulas question''' will look the same as in the previous example.
 
 
 
</div>
 
 
 
----
 
 
 
== Multiple questions, i.e. subquestions==
 
If there is more than one question in a formulas question, we will treat them as subquestions. It is then necessary to define the mark, answer and grading criteria in a part for each subquestion.
 
=== Without placeholders===
 
If you don't use subquestion placeholders, the answer boxes of the subquestions will simply be stacked one above the other.
 
<div style="border:1px solid #bce8f1;border-radius:4px;padding: 0px 15px 0px; margin:20px 0 25px;">
 
<div style="font-family:Lucida Sans Unicode;font-size:113%;color:#6c336d;margin:10px 0 10px;> Example</div>
 
 
 
Create a formulas question that has three sub-questions. Do not use placeholders.
 
 
 
<pre style="font-size:113%;">
 
General
 
  Question name!      A Formulas question with three subquestions
 
Main question
 
  Question text!      What is 3 + 4?
 
                      What is 4 + 5?
 
                      What is 5 + 5?
 
                      Please enter your answers below in the same order as the questions:
 
Part 1
 
  Part's mark*        1
 
  Answer*              7
 
  Grading criteria*    Absolute error == 0
 
Part 2
 
  Part's mark*        1
 
  Answer*              9
 
  Grading criteria*    Absolute error == 0
 
Part 3
 
  Part's mark*        1
 
  Answer*              10
 
  Grading criteria*    Absolute error == 0
 
</pre>
 
 
 
The formulas question should look like this:
 
 
 
[[File:FormulasTutorialQuestion02.png|560px]]
 
 
 
</div>
 
 
 
Obviously, we can do better by placing the three questions each one in a part.
