This evaluation type checks if the variable in the Definition field is present in the operator of the Definition field. i.e.
times,x checks whether there is a multiplication that has a variable x as a descendant in the student’s answer. Example:
The second argument in the Definition can be a list, where multiple variables can be searched with an OR. For example, the following rule checks whether there is a division that has x or y as a descendant.
An optional third argument in the Definition specifies the position of the child. For example, the following rule checks whether the denominator (and not the numerator) of a fraction has an x or y in it.
Moreover, this rule checks whether there is an x in the left argument of a multiplication:
❗ Note: if your feedback rule doesn’t seem to work for some reason, try deleting any spaces in the feedback Definition.
