These quizzes provide some examples of STACK questions.
The following documentation, designed for students, explains how answers are typed into STACK and assessed.
The following questions illustrate various authoring topics, and are designed for question authors, not for students.
In April 2010 the National HE STEM Programme funded a mini-project to take existing diagnostic tests in core mathematics and develop similar automatic tests for the STACK computer aided assessment system.
The questions in these quizzes form part of the outcomes of this project. Other topics are listed below - quizzes with questions on these topics will be posted in due course.
Arithmetic Operations (ART)
Interpreting Graphs (GRP)
Analysis of Diagrams (DIG)
These questions are taken from A Calulus Refresher, by Dr A Croft and Dr A Kay, the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Loughborough University.
The following algebraic questions are based loosley on Tony Barnard's "A pocket map of algebraic manipulation". This booklet is included for completeness, although not all the questions in the booklet are automated here.
