minutes to read

With our new math equation generator, teachers can create a unique math question that will change the equation on a per-student basis. Our partner, Learnosity, made it really easy to generate this question type right from the Classify Learning platform.

Meet the newest member of our item type family…the Math Question Generator! The Math Question Generator is a great tool for math question authors looking to create one single question with dynamic parameters. In simpler terms, that means you can create one question for an assessment, but each student will have different numbers. And the best part… Classify Learning’s engine will score all student answers automatically!

We do the math behind the scenes to know the correct answer to each possible question that is generated. It’s a math teacher dream come true! Gone are the days of having to give students multiple versions of a test! Yes, we hear the angelic music in the background, too.
