There
are many different types of questions that can be created within a quiz,
self-assessment, survey, and question library. This tutorial demonstrates how
to create an arithmetic question within MyFIRE.

1. Locate
the desired **course** in MyFIRE.

2. Select **instructor tools** from the navigation bar.

3. Then
select **course admin** from the drop-down menu.

4. Locate
and select** quizzes** from under the Assessment section.

5. When
the page refreshes, select **question library** from the quiz navigation
bar.** **

6. Once
in the Question Library, select** new**.

7. Next,
select **arithmetic question** from the drop-down menu.

8. If
desired, give the question a **title**. The title displays in the question
list within the question library.

9. Add
the **point value** for the question. *The default option is set to one.*

10. Choose
the level of **difficulty** for the question. The difficulty level options
are 1-5 and will be up to the instructor’s discretion. *The default option is
set to one.*

11. Enter
the question prompt in the** question text **field. *For further
instructions on the MyFIRE editor textbox, refer to the **utilize the MyFIRE editor tutorial**. *If
generating random numbers for the problem, enclose the variables in curly
braces (e.g., {x} and {y}). Example question: If you have {x} apples and {y}
oranges, how many pieces of fruit do you have?

12. Next,
if desired, **insert an image**. If inserting an image, also ensure that **alternative
text** has been entered to describe the image. Alternative text is important
for ADA purposes, including screen-readers.

13. If
desired, select **allow attachments to support answers** to allow students
to add attachments to their answers.

14. Enter
the solution to the problem in the **formula** field. Be sure to enclose all
variables in curly braces (e.g., {y}/{x}).

15. Refine
the answer criteria for the question by setting an **answer precision **and** tolerance**.

a. __Answer Precision__- This option allows
you to set the acceptable number of decimal places the answer much contain.

i. Select the checkbox to **enforce
precision** if you would like MyFIRE to mark the answer wrong if the
incorrect number of decimals is used.

b. __Tolerance__- This option
allows nistructors to determine if near-accurate, estimated, or rounded answers
will be accepted. Determine the level of error acceptability by typing in the **units **or** percentage **(percent of the answer) fields.

c. Enter the type of** units** the students will need to solve for and receive full credit for the
question (e.g., fruit). For example, if the student doesn't write fruit, points
will be taken off (12 fruits - full credit or 12 - half credit) of the
student’s score.

d. Enter the percentage of
the question’s value that the units will be **worth**.

16. If
desired, choose if the answer to the question will be case insensitive, case
sensitive, or a regular expression in the **evaluation options**.

a. If an answer will
include a regular expression, refer to the create a short answer question tutorial to
review how to create a regular expression.

17. Enter
the **variables **(e.g., x & y) used in the question. For each variable,
provide a minimum and maximum value including decimal places or add a step
value. A step value sets increments for the minimum and maximum values choosen
for the variables.

a. Add a new variable by
entering the number of new variables desired and then select **add variable**.

18. Add
hints and/or feedback using the **expand question hint** and the **expand
question feedback **options.

19. Select **save**.
