Mathematics Online Interview: New features

In response to teacher feedback, the following features are available in MOI from 14 March 2017:

  • Guided branching that is less strict, which means that conflicts should not occur.
  • Flexibility to navigate freely through the assessment via the question panel.
  • Ability to change answers on previous questions.
  • Ability to submit the assessment at any point.
  • Fine-tuning of the grading to more accurately report on growth points.  As a result, teachers may notice some students receiving growth points in Counting for which they were not previously credited.
