Math teachers would love to be able to use WIRIS to put mathematical symbols in the choices under the select from a list option in Tests.

Thanks for sharing your idea.
As you probably know you can use the WIRIS editor in six of the ten question types in itslearning :-)
One of my colleagues, a former physics teacher, is now working in the team designing the new itslearning test tool. As you can imagine she is well acquainted with mathematical symbols :-) . She is completely aware of your need, but our options are limited because today WIRIS is part of the rich text editor used in itslearning. So, to get WIRIS in where you want it to be we need to add the full rich text editor…and inserting the full rich text editor under the "select from a list" in Test is not an option today. This is partly because we now focus on finalizing a new mobile friendly and shareable version of the test tool, and partly because all the options in the rich text editor is not a good fit for all question types.
We are of course aware of you pain, and when time comes to replace the rich text edit we will look for a solution that covers the need for math symbols in the "select from a list" in Test need. For the moment we can’t do this - sorry.
