This evaluation type checks whether the interval provided by the student is equal to that in the Definition field. The Definition should be specified as a first or second-degree (in)equality in one variable.

Example 1 (first-degree inequality):

Example 2 (second-degree inequality):

If the student answers in the form of a (union of) interval(s), they should use the interval buttons on the function tab of the virtual keyboard. They cannot use buttons on a different tab of the virtual keyboard or brackets on their physical keyboard.

For the union and intersection symbols, students should use the logic tab of the virtual keyboard.

If you want students to only be able to answer with (in)equalities, and not using interval notation, then you can use the evaluation type eval domain. Moreover, this evaluation type should not be confused with the evaluation type eval intervals.

Note that this evaluation type does not have automated feedback. The system does give a warning if the student uses (minus) infinity in a (half-)closed interval. Example:
