# Calculated Formula Questions

A calculated formula question contains a formula, the variables of which are set to change for each user. The variable range is created by specifying a minimum value and a maximum value for each variable. Answer sets are randomly generated. The correct answer is a specific value or a range of values. Partial credit may be granted for answers falling within range.

Adding a calculated question to an Assessment is a three step process:

- Create the question and formula
- Define the values for the variables
- Confirm the variables and answers

Since this question allows the instructor to randomize the value of variables in an equation, it may be useful when creating math drills and giving a test when students are seated close together.

The question is the information presented to students. The formula is the mathematical expression used to find the answer. Remember to enclose variables in square brackets.
