  • date / time: intelligent evaluation for dates
  • mathematical expression: intelligent evaluation for more complex mathematical formulas; perfectly suited for the study natural sciences
  • matrices and sets
  • free text: semi-automatic evaluation

Tasks can be uploaded or added to the test in the following ways:

  • Upload on the user interface: using the online editor
  • Upload as a file: as Excel spreadsheet or special EDU format
  • Add existing questions: previously uploaded questions to EduBase
