How to Add a Protractor to your Advanced Assessment

💡 Tip from the Otus Team: Rather than adding a protractor to an empty item, We recommend building the question first, then adding the protractor. If you haven't built the question yet, that's ok too, you can just add it later.

➡️ The example below shows how to add the Protractor Ito an item that contains a Cloze Math Question. The Protractor can be added to any item at any time.

Step 1: Add the Feature

  • While in the item you wish to add the Protractor to, select the + symbol to add a new feature.

  • Select the Features tab and choose the Protractor.

Step 2: Optional Settings

There are a few optional settings you can adjust.

➡️ Button, Button Icon, & Label

  • Button: If you want the protractor to first appear as a button the students have to click on, choose this option. The Button Icon and Label options are only relevant if you choose to have a button.

  • Button Icon: You can customize the button with your own image by selecting the blue Edit button. Otherwise, leave "protractor" in this field, and it will appear as a protractor icon (shown in the example below).

  • Label: The label is what will appear on the button (if you choose "protractor" as the icon).

➡️ Size (width and height)

  • You can adjust the size of the protractor by customizing the width and height here.

➡️ Show Rotate Icon

  • The rotate icon will allow students to rotate the protractor. If you would like to disable this, uncheck this box.

❗ For the Image Alternative Text setting: this setting is not used in Otus

Step 3: Save

  • Select Save.

Step 4: Move

  • If the protractor is not where you'd like it, you can move it to another location in the item by selecting the drag and drop icon on the right side. See the example below.
