5k. Create Advanced Number Grid Questions in GradeCam Go!


Number Grid items have students answer a question by filling in the numbers and symbols on a grid. All users can create basic grids where the columns are identical. School and district users can also use the advanced option to customize the columns.

Customn Columns: Custom column configurations enable you to easily create custom griddable layouts to match what a student might see on state or other standardized tests. For example, if the standardized test includes 3 columns of numbers, followed by a decimal and 2 more columns of numbers, you can configure your GradeCam form to match.

Note: This option is not available on free accounts. Please contact sales@gradecam.com to upgrade to a paid license.

Texas Users: If your standards are set to Texas state standards there are additional options that align to the STAAR Test.
