Allow regular expressions as a correction scheme

reguläre Ausdrücke als Korrekturschema zulassen

In Schülerlösungen als mathematische Formeln und Programmiercodes sind die wichtigen Schlagworte nicht duch Leerzeichen abgegrenzt. Die autom. Wortkorrektur funktioniert hier nicht. Reguläre Ausdrücke könnten Korrekturschemata liefern. Variablennamen könnten ignoriert, das Formelschema als pattern erkannt werden.


In student solutions as mathematical formulas and programming codes, the important keywords are not separated by spaces. The automatic Word correction doesn't work here. Regular expressions could provide correction schemes. Variable names could be ignored and the formula scheme could be recognized as a pattern.

    Thanks for your input.

    We unfortunately do not have plans to enhance our test questions to handle more complex expressions to interpret the student answers, although this might be useful in some cases.

    We'll leave the idea open for voting to understand the need.

    Thanks,
    The itslearning product team
