New Quizzes: Match the Equation Editor to the ISTEP Equation Editor

New Quizzes: Match the Equation Editor to the ISTEP Equation Editor

(2)

I would like to see the equation editor have the same layout/functionality as the equation editor the students will have on the Indiana state assessments.  This can be as simple as a toggle button and/or a district wide choice to implement.  The equation editor for Indiana testing can be found here:  https://in.testnav.com/client/index.html#login?username=LGN510861850&password=ZM7ZR38B

I'm not sure if they intended that username and password to be shared with the entire world, so here are some screen shots.

And here are the symbols under each.

James -

The equation editor is for everyone to use and see it is not confidential.

It is the example of what I would like to see in Canvas to allow students

in the state of Indiana the opportunity to practice via Canvas.

Thanks,

Kristien

Hi Kristien,

we understand you want your students to be able to practise for Indiana State Assessments with an equation editor similar to ISTEP equation editor.

At WIRIS we integrate an equation editor in Canvas. www.wiris.com/canvas 

WIRIS EDITOR provides PARCC compatible toolbars, very close to ISTEP. We can work on an ISTEP toolbar if there is an interest.


Today it is not immediate to use PARCC compatibe toolbars in Canvas. However, we can work on it. Please contact us at support@wiris.com

FYI, the ISTEP is changing to ILEARN, complete with different equation editors and the like. I would very much like to see something standard used, such as the tools on Desmos (which is the new, official test scientific calculator for ILEARN).

If you look at the date that this request was submitted (October 30, 2017)

you will realize that this request was put in for the 2018 test. Yes, you

are correct that test is changing although this is a moot point at this

time.

Kristin, yes, I understand, but the request is still valid just slightly different now. I'd still like this feature going forward. It's a good idea!

Patricia - I apologize as I didn't understand your post, but do now. I

would suggest that you have your students vote "up" for this and I can do

the same with this years crew as we need to have activity with lots of

"ups" before they will address this. Please share this with your

colleagues. Thanks for clarification. Kristien
